How to install

When you install a DVD RW; a few things to consider. Locate a IDE connection to your motherboard. (do you need to share with the cdrom already in the pc or not?) You need to ensure the jumpers are set right. there are 3 spots on the back labled "CS/MA/SL" (on the lg, these are typically stamped into the top) The "first" drive on the wire is "ma" the second is 'sl" or ensure both are set to "cs" (which is cable select) this will ensure they can be detected. Hook up a power connection to the drive (use anyone that is free) OF COURSE, ensure your computer is OFF before you do this.

What is CSM/SLA -of CD-RW DRIVE SH-R522

It's not CSM/SLA. The letters CSM are directly over SLA, and they are vertically read as CS, SL, MA -which stand for Cable Select, Slave, and Master. They are found on IDE drives as the jumper points. Depending on where the drive is connected on an IDE cable, the jumper should match accordingly. CS is often used for either, preferably when there are no other devices on a single IDE cable.

How do i set my TS-H552 as slave?

Look closely at the "back" of the unit.

Look for a 2-by-4 grid of pins, labelled:

* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)
* SP(are)

Move the small "jumper" to the 'SL' position.

Need the switch setting for connection as slave

On the back of the drive is a set of six pins.
There will be writing above or below these pins it will be (cs),(sl)(ma).
There should be a cap on two of these pins make sure you put them on the two pins marked (sl) slave. If you are connecting this along with another
drive make sure the other drive is set to (ma) master.

My lg dvd-rw is not detected but has a power in it

Disconnect the "data" and "power" cables from the drive.
Remove the drive.
Look at the labels on the "back".
You should see some pairs of gold-coloured pins:

Move the small jumper to the 'CS' position.
Reinsert the drive.
Reconnect the "data" and "power" cables.
Restart your computer.
Now, it should be detected.

If not, move that small jumper to 'MA', and try again.

If that still fails, move the small jumper to 'SL' and try again.

The jumper combination for a slave drive on an LG GSA-4163B

Most CD/DVD drives have a label showing the jumper setting for Master (MA), Slave (SL)and Cable Select (CS).
You only need a single jumper and it is inserted in a vertical position.
There are a group of 6 pins (3 columns of 2 pins) next to the 40 pin IDE connector.
The Slave setting is usually the middle set of pins.

Newly installed LG DVD drive not playing DVDs

Ok some where on the DVD drive ther is a diagram of those 6 pins and the jumper. Or if you look on the bottom and the top of the drive you may see 3 abbreviations as follow MA, SL, CS. Place the jumper verticle on the pins that are directly above or below CS. That refers to those pins for the jumper to be on for the drive to be set to Cable Select mode. Cable Select means whatever part of the cable the drive is on it will automatically set the drive to Master or Slave.

How do you set a LG GSA-H10A DVD Drive as a Slave?

on the drive there will be printed or stamped:
MA, SL, CS (maybe in a different order.) Often there is a printed label, and often the re are tiny letters stamped either above or below the jumper pins.
You need to place a jumper in the vertical position over 1 set of pins corresponding to the map above.
ie if you want the drive to be a Master, jumper the vertical set marked (or indicated) as MA.
If you want it to be Slave, jumper the SL set.
If you want the drive to be set depending on where on the IDE ribbon cable is conected, connect the pins marked as CS.
BIOS will then allocate the drive as either a master or slave.

Using Internet Explorer but not Firefox, get the manual here:

Note the manual is a dejaVu document which will ask to load a viewer plug-in into Internet Explorer.

Actually, inside that document, there is a drawing indicating that reading from left to right (ie from next to audio connector), the pins are: CS,SL, MA. So for example upper and lower pins at the extreme left are Cable Select, so you would jumper those 2 pins.
