Question about FIC K7MNF-64 nVidia nForce 2 Socket A mATX MB w/Snd, VID LAN Motherboard
The system loaded windows xp pro with no problems. However, when I wento to my computer, it does not see my 2 DVD drives. I have swapped where the cables plug into the mother board. Any ideas? When I go to the bios by hitting F2, it does not see the optical drives. Thanks in advance for any help.
If you have 2 drives attached to the same calbe, make sure one is set to MASTER, and one to SLAVE.

The IDE cable comes with 3 IDE plugs. The longer end goes into the motherboard. The two close together goes into the two dvd drives. If you take out the DVD drives, make sure that both are not set on master. At the rear of the drive where the power and IDE connects, there is one jumper that is in line with the letters C, S or M for Cable Select, Slave and Master, respectively. One of the drives should be set to master and the other as slave. Turn on the computer and you should be able to view both drives now. Let me know if this solves your problem. Lolita
