I have my Lite-On DVD as the Secondary Master and my HDD as my Primary Master. Both have the jumpers set to master. I tried to set the jumper on the Lite-On CDRW to slave and put it in the Secondary Slave IDE port but the system won't pick it up. I need some help please. Thanks for any help.
This is starting to get frustrating. I put the HDD on the first channel in the primary port. Then I put the DVD as slave in the first channel also in the secondary port. Then I put the CDRW as a master in the second channel primary port.
Then when I went to the BIOS it detects the DVD as a Secondary Master instead of a Primary Slave and it doesn't detect the CDRW at all. I've tried other combinations and I am just lost. Can someone please help!!
you should set it up as hard drive and dvd on the same channal. if you don't do this then you will get write isues when burning from the device on the same channal as the cdr. e.g cd to cd copying with the dvd and the cdr on the same channal will not coster all your cd's or at best bey very slow.
-edit: it sounds like your dvd is set as a slave at the moment make sure it is set right-<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by secretninja on 07/26/02 03:22 PM.</EM></FONT></P>
