If you have only a hard drive apart from this CDRW look at the connection to the hard drive and follow to the IDE0 connecter on the mobo.(do not connect CDRW to this as it will slow up the harddrive). Next to this will be another connector IDE1, if you already have a device connected to this there will be an IDE cable already there. On the IDE cable half way up will be another connector, connect this to your CDRW and set the plastic cap jumper to the SLAVE position. If no device connected you need an ide cable from the connector on the motherboard to the CDRW and set the jumper at the back at slave. Just remember if you have two peices of hardware on one cable one is set at 'MASTER' and one is set at 'SLAVE'. Don't forget to connect the power lead from the power supply unit to CDRW. Restart pc and it will be auto detected.

Install asus crw 5224a in ubuntu

I think that you have an internal unit not an external one like pictured.

Just hook it up like normal and try booting your system with an Ubuntu Live Cd in your drive. It should just work.

Ok... maybe you'll have to explore your BIOS to find how to let the system boot from a CD, but that's usually a bit of quick trial and error.

Good luck.

My asus crw 5224a is inoperble driver update cant

Because you are trying to install the wrong driver.
Go do windows update and windows will install the correct driver for you, this will work on windows xp, vista and windows 7 only, you did no state your OS.
Hope this helps

I cannot get my bluetooth working on my laptop i press the butto but it comes up with a red cross and cannot find the blue tooth icon anywhere or pair it with my phone

the 5536-5224 DOESN'T have bluetooth. It has the button but it's not functional. You have to buy a bluetooth chip and install it. Believe me I know, I did it. You can install all the drivers you want but without putting in the chip you will never have bluetooth.

Amd 2600+ doesnt work

Check your bios version and make sure it is correct bios. You can check the Aopen site to download the new bios and flash utility to install it. Be carefull and make sure that it is CORRECT bios for EXACT Motherboard. The bios can be flashed wrong and leave you with a paper weight. Good Luck

Aopen ax4bs no audio device found.

I've tried this and your right. It is the Jumper Caps missing causing your audio not to work. It should work. Maybe your diagram is up side down? Or maybe it is the wrong jumpers?
