HDD wont work on same ribbon as DVD burner

Not sure where to put this. If it's in the wrong place can you let me know please.

I want to use an additional HDD and can only place it on the slave connector of the ribbon cable which has a DVD burner as the master. There is no way the system is recognizing this device. It, the HDD is ok as I have connected it to the slave on the boot drive cable and all is well.
Why wont this drive recognise the drive using this ata cable?Thx

  1. Check the jumper settings on the DVD drive, (depending on make) it could be set as a single drive instead of Master/Slave or Cable Select.
  2. No, its set at Master. No success yet.
    Any other bright ideas...please;)
