Hi, I recently completed my i7 build and all worked first time;

i7 920
P6T Deluxe
6GB G-Skill ram
GTX 295
WD 500 AAKS
Seagate 250GB
LD 22x Dvd burner sata.

then yesterday morning i bought a new

TP-WN951n Wireless card
22x LG DvD Burner IDE
500gb HDD Seagate.

i installed the new components, the HDD worked.

i went to use the DVD drive and it will open and close but wont register in the bios or in my comp or under Device manager.
I am using the IDE cable that came with the mobo, it is labbled with HDD could this be the problem (I need a new cable)
i ve tried using the different colour connectors on the cable (Slave, Master)

Secondly my wirless card. i installed correctly and device manger registered it, then i installed the drivers and porgram off the disc provided.

the card was then registed as TP-Link Wirless adapter in device manager.
the program however which you need to get a connection (I Think) wont work it says that the card doesnt exist.
so i unistalled the program and then installed the Atheros chipset drivers from their site but still i cant seen to get it to work.

Please Help.

Is there a jumper on the DVD burner?

You don't need a program to set up a connection, use the Network Setup Wizard.

What do you mean about the jumper on the DVD Burner?

Yes, turn the PC off when changing the jumper. If it works it will show up in the BIOS.
