I want to install a CD/DVD RW drive. This is in addition to the installed CD/DVD already in place. The new drive has a SATA connection on the back, and the only available connector is an IDE connector....


There are IDE to SATA adapters and cables, such as this one linked below. IDE to SATA Adapter
You would simply plug this adapter into the available IDE connection on your motherboard, then use the SATA data and power cable to connect from the adapter to the CD/DVD drive. You can look around online for similar products, but they should get the job done!

HP dvd740b does not detect blank CDs and DVDs


Hi,

i think you,ve hit the nail-on-the-head.
The laser has to power up highrer to write a DVD, or ocassionally have a dual laser. 1 for read/write CD. And 1 For Read/Write DVD.
Certain cd roms, only use CD- media. it,s probably worth checking which media is supported by the drive.
Also check the drives aren,t conflicting, on the same ide channel, sometimes swapping channels, ide primary/secondary can help, or swiitching Master/Slave/cable select jumpers on the drives Themselves.

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

LG DVD Drive


the scsi and raid refers to sata hard drives or ide in a raid configuration. the dvd drive if on a cable on its own should be set at master, if on a cable with another drive then set it at slave, cable select doesnt always work as the motherboard cannot identify the ide source. Youe DVD drive will be listed in device manager under cd/dvd drives, click the + sign and if it's listed there, right click it and select uninstall. Restart the pc and see if it's reinstalled automatically, it should do, then be ready for use, if you still cannot see it in my computer check the drives ide cable and swap the drives over if necassary, if still not showing the drive needs to be replaced.

Cd Drive


Go to your local radioshack or electronics store and purchase a cleaning disc, usually 15 or 20 bucks. Make sure you get the right one as there are diffrent cleaning discs for dvd or cd. The disc has a microfiber brush that removes dirt and debris as it spins, these can be used in all diffrent cd players, not just computers, car cd players, home. Anyway good luck L8R

CD Drive will not read disks


If you only think youve installed correctly, double check the jumpers on back whether master or slave depending on which ide cable is used and whether there are two devices or one on the ide cable. was the cdrom recognised by windows when it was rebooted after install and automatically installed? check on the device manager on the ide/atapi controllers see if ultra dma is being used.

CD/DVD ROM disappears


I would think either your IDE cable is faulty or the IDE connector on the motherboard, try swapping cables or use a double IDE cable on IDE 1 connector. You may have a faulty drive ide connection input in which case a new DVD Rom is the answer, only cheap nowadays.
