External CD/DVD in leiu of malfuctioning internal drive
Hello, My cd/dvd recently quit working. I replaced it with a new one, and the new one won't work either. It's connected to the MB with IDE ribbon cable. I haven't taken it apart again to look, but is there another IDE connection on the MB? If so, should I try that? And how do I configure the jumper? (I've tried all 3 positions with the new writer.) It's an HP Slimline. And if none this works, would an external device connected by USB function, despite this apparent MB issue?
