Question about AOpen DVD1648L (750519138717) DVD Drive
I'm running Win2000pro on a 1 gig p111. I had both a cd burner and a dvd burner installed but wanting to back up dvd software I decided to get another dvd burner. I replaced the cd burner making sure to set the new dvd drive as master (same as the cd} and installed it.When I turned my pc back I found both drive letters had disappeared. I checked the cables and everything was tight, so I unplugged the slave. Now the burner works but when plugging in the second burner,I lose both drives again. I've been told it may have something to do with Win2000 and both drives being identical. Any ideas? Would really appreciate some help with this. Thank You
Did you check the jumpers on the drives? If both are on the same cable, use "master" for one and "slave" for the second. Do not let the drives set to "csl" (cable select) as this could cause BIOS or Windows to reaign drive letters. I currectly run 9 machines with three DVD burners in each, six of which have the same model drive. If you have service pack 4 for Win2k you should not have a problem with seeing the drives. Both drives set to "master" or slave on the same cable will cause BIOS to not see either one.

Window 2000 could be a probable cauuse.You could try the following. Update windows by installing the latest hot fixes this would most probably solve the problem if the problem is in windows. if the drives show up in device manager. boot you PC in safe mode and uninstall the drivers of both DVD drives.and reboot normally. If this doesnt work let me know your DVD drive make and model.
