If you put it on the same ide ribbon as another drive then youll need to set 1 as master and 1 as slave, theres a jumper setting on the back of your drive. on the top of your drive it should tell you were master is and were slave is, youll need to pull the little black plug out (jumper) and move it to where you want it to be, i.e master or slave

hope it helps

The disk driver for a emachines desktop will not recognize any disks


I have had this same problem on 3 drives over the years, it is a failed drive, this of course must be varified by checking that the drive does show up in the window explorer drop down. You can buy these drives very cheap on eBay, I think paid $15.00 for the IDE interface DVD-RW 22X DVD/CD reader/writer I just replaced in my Dell running a XP operating system.

Optical drives do not recognize disk when trying to load new disk


If you cannot read those CD-disks in _any_ computer, then the disks are "bad".

If you can read those CD-disks, then it's time to replace the CD/DVD drive. Find a smaller computer-store -- often they will remove the "dead" drive, and install the "new" drive, for $0.00, or for a small fee, if you buy the new CD/DVD-writer from them.

DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs


Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..
