Depending on your brand of hard drive if its western digital remove all jumpers and put on the master cable only, if it is alone,if there is another drive on the same cable then put jumper on master jumper which on western digital is in the center of the pin group,, your problem sounds like a jumper on the hard drive problem not a repair problem, i would look on the hard drive whichever brand and see jumper settings and make sure also that your jumper is good ,,,good luck I hope this helped

When I run the maxtor 93073u6 as a slave - it kills my cd drive and When I remove it the cd drive comes back I have tried everything I can. Help!


Run the Hard drive using one cable with duel main and slave capability and the CDROM drive give it its own cable ising the second IDE cable as the master for the CDROM drive. Isolate them. Making sure one is master and set to accept a slave drive using one cable for both hard drives and one for the CDROM drive. Try that and see if this assisted you. Do not forget to vote John

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c drive is not working. It is not listed in "My Computer". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but that does not work.


Is the CD-ROM drive on a separate cable on the second IDE controller on the desktop motherboard? Then the jumper setting can be set to Master or Slave if no other drive is connector to this cable.
If the CD-ROM is also on the first IDE controller and IDE cable as the hard drive then the jumper setting on the CD-ROM must be set to SLAVE because the hard drive would be jumpered as MASTER.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the CD-ROM drive is detected.
If the CD-ROM still does not work after you checked and configured the CD-ROM drive, then is is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Reinstalling the original cd rom that came in the computer. do i need to change the jumper settings. it is a samsung sc-148


That depends upon the IDE cable you are attaching the CD ROM to.
There are two IDE cables attached to the motherboard, on IDE 1 connector/cable will be your boot hard drive (C drive) and this will be jumpered to Master and you can attach the CD ROM drive to this cable and set the jumper on the CD drive as Slave.
On IDE 2 connector/cable if there are no drives attached to this cable then the CD ROM drive can be jumpered as Master or Slave..
If there is another drive on the same IDE 2 cable then look at the jumper on that drive, if it is jumpered to Master then the CD drive needs to be jumpered to Slave. If the existing drive is jumpered as Slave then the CD drive needs to be jumpered as Master.
Both drives on the same IDE cable cannot be jumpered with the same setting.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

Computer does not see hard drive or cd rom


Use separate cable for both the hard drive.
Make master to the one which is bootable,restart your system and just check bios setting whether both the hard disk are detected or not..also under boot device check first boot drive is hard drive which is master and bootable..

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.

This age of computer will most likely be an IDE CD rom drive
You may have a break in the IDE cable it has 40 wires in it if it is
IDE and may be connected to its own IDE controller or may be set up as a slave to the hard drive on the same cable.

if it is i slave it will have jumpers on it that tell if the drive is slave or master . Check these are set up to hard drive master and then cd rom as slave if on same cable

if it is faulty you may need a new ide cd rom
not sure how hard it is to get ide but with onew of these you could convert to sata type drive http://www.umart.com.au/umart1/pro/Products-details.phtml?id=10&id2=25&bid=2&sid=71095
