hi all. Recently assembled a system based around the dragon + and am having problems getting my pioneer dvd/cd-rom recognized on the IDE ports 3 + 4 (tried both).
-a Western Digital hd on IDE 1 set to master
-a tdk 24x burner on IDE 2. also set to master
I heard you should have you burner and cd-roms on different cables to avoid performance problems. Also when I try to burn a cd in Nero, it tells me the same thing (about the different cables).
The dvd is recognized when set to slave on the same cable as the burner @ master.
If anyone has any idea what might be going on, I would appreciate any input.
I believe there's a jumper on the mobo to switch the ports from raid mode to ide mode. Have you checked this?

Make sure you have enabled the ATI/RAID in the bios, if you don't do that these ports will not work. If you have a ata100 hd, it would be better to install it here & use ports 1 & 2 for your DVD & Burner.
