I installed the new cd/dvd driver, but the compter won't install it.


If this is the only drive on your PC you have to make sure that you have set up the jumper to master. the jumper is located in the back of the drive. you must also install the driver for the drive to work properly.

Hi, well I think your DVDRW is OK & you don't need any driver. The detail that you are missing is the "jumper" found on your DVDRW. Normally you have 2 connections on your IDE cable. The upper one being "master" & the second middle one "slave". You should set the jumper according to the place on the cable where it is connected. You will find CSM written on your DVDRW. 'C' means cable select, 'S' means Slave & 'M' means Master.
You should refer to it when setting the jumper. If you have 2 drives on that cable & they are both set as 'slave' or both 'master', therefore only one would be detected & displayed in my computer.
Your problem would surely be solved... & have a nice time.

Compaq presario sr1800nx won't turn on


Check the jumper settings on the DVDRW. Depending on IDE location, you need to set the jumpers accordingly. If you have the main system hard drive on the same IDE channel as the DVDRW, set the jumpers on the DVDRW to slave, if that don't work, set them to Cable Select. I'm assuming it's an IDE drive and not SATA.

How do i install a used hard drive into an eMachines T2341? The hard drive still has information on it. do i set it as master, slave, or cable select? hard drive is an IBM 10.1 gb


There are two possible solutions depending on how your desktop is setup.
#1 install the 2nd hard drive and put jumper to CABLE SELECT. When you start the computer it should now appear in the bios as a SLAVE or 2nd hard drive. If not go to #2 below
#2 Turn system off again and change jumper on 2nd hard drive to SLAVE.
Now when your computer restarts it will appear in your bios correctly as the 2nd drive/SLAVE.
Do not make it "MASTER" or you will be trying to boot up to this drive and it may not work as you planned.

FYI: "Cable Select" means the hard drive determines which one is Master and which one is Slave by where it is on the data cable.

Good Luck

I am replacing my hard drive (Gateway GT5694) since the original crashed. I didn't realize the replacement would have a jumper to install and therefor didn't look at the original close enough to see if it...


The new hard drive should be set to master drive, if not just make sure the jumper is in the master slot. A small diagram should be on the hard drive. Then make sure you connect the hard drive to the end ribbon cable connector.

Hi,
usually when you update or re-flash the dvd rom.
it will state :- ensure that the drive to be flashed should be jumper set as master. if there were other drives connected to the same ide channel. this could have caused damage to the other drives connected. Or the IDE Channels themselves.
The only suggestion I have for you. is to remove all the drives. disconnect the power from the computer. and remove the cmos battery, for 10-15 seconds. resetting the computers bios back to defaults. then re-settup the drives ensuring that the jumpers are correct for each drive. i.e 1 slave and 1 master on each ide cable.

I have just put a new dvdrw in as my old one stopped working i also have a dvd drive when i put new one in the dvd drive one was not showing up in my computer the new one did but just froze


This is certainly a jumper issue... You must have one set as Master and one set as Slave unless you have both set as Cable Select... If you have tested this and nothing works then the drives are probably not compatible with each other, but I am almost certain this is a jumper issue since it is freezing.

If the drive is "Master" (the first drive in cable line installed) then the jumper goes to "MA", if it is a "SLAVE" connected drive then the jumper goes to "SL".
