Optiplex GX280 add SATA CD/DVD-RW

November 19, 2012 5:15:22 AM

Hello,
I am having trouble in that the Dell Gx280 will not "see" the optical drive. The old IDE drive wasn't working either. EHow.com article says IDE or SATA optical drive can be added/replacement because there are both kinds of slots available, which there are. It has another SATA slot on MoBo and I've added the drive using SATA 2 slot. It's not detected. Used Molex pwr to Sata adapter and new cabling. Is there a bios change I need to do? It's not my comp, I'm trying to help out my helpless bro.
Dell Optiplex 280 Tower w new Sata LG GH24NS90 Optical drive. We thank you.
