Building a new PC. So far I have lots of help getting the right parts, great prices and getting things together ... thanks to all.
So tonight I turn things on ... get the boot screen ... get in to the BIOS to set the boot order to CD first ... restart the PC ... and nothing. I push the button to oped the CD drive (a Samsung SH-222BB) and nothing happens. I hold the button and nothing ... I push the button lots and other than seeing the green LED a couple times nothing.
I tried different plugs from the PSU and a second SATA2 port on the mobo on the mobo. I'm not seeing the issue here.
Is this what a DOA CD acts like or do I have even worse problems???
to see if the drive tray is bad.use a paper clip and see if the drive tray will open. with the cd-rom to work right make sure your using the intel sata ports. some mb have thrid party chipset and there only good for hard drives. cd-rom drive can glitch to unglitch them you have to power off the pc and then power back on. also make sure in your bios the sata ports are set to achi not ide or raid.
