IDE to SATA problems

I have an old, but awesome, PLEXTOR - DVDR PX-760A (I think) for ripping cd's. I built a new computer a few months back (no IDE inteface) and I just got around to installing the Plextor because the Asus I bought isn't cutting it for accurate rips. I bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822998001 from Newegg, but I can't seem to get it working. I have power, but the drive will not show up. Is there something obvious I might be missing? :(

  1. I would check your jumpers on the drive.. My guess is that they would need to set to stand alone for SATA?
  2. Best answer
    The IDE CD drive has to be set as Master using the jumpers on the back
  3. Is the sata slot turned on in the BIOS?

  5. I'm going to go ahead and give the nod to the jumper having to be on master. Although it probably helped that I also realized I needed to plug in the adapter itself to power. :lol: oh well. I probably would have needed the jumper advice anyway. Thanks.
