Optiplex GX280 add SATA CD/DVD-RW

November 19, 2012 5:15:22 AM

I am having trouble in that the Dell Gx280 will not "see" the optical drive. The old IDE drive wasn't working either. 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.
