Slimline SATA DVD drive...hmmmm Tags: SATA Power Components Last response: August 2, 2010 1:13 PM in Components Share lmartinefc August 2, 2010 12:40:27 PM Hi Using an LG slimline sata drive. Connected apapter to it so that gets power from floppy connector. Plug sata into mobo power on Drive open and stays open. Close it, tries to read, no disk, so spits tray out again Put a disk in, then power on, it will read the disk (and if it bootable, will allow me to install windows from it) But if the disk drive is empty, when trying to POST it spits out the tray, or POST hangs.... Please help, got a nice new system and cant get a DVD drive to work!

Thats why I purchased this adapter specifically made for these drives. Driving me crazy thought. if there's a disk in, it will POST, read disk, install of disk Try starting now disk, POST hangs and keeps spitting out tray if you close it ?
