post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well i just dont know that this is the right section. But i have a problem with DVD/CD-ROM. The cables have been connected(4-pin power supply, IDE , and somekinda small wire). The problem is that when computer starts the green light is blinking. But when computer is in boot screen it is not there. Also no drives in device manager and even in my computer.

Have you got another ide cable?

Have you got the cable the right way around?

Is there anything else connected to the same cable i.e hdd or another dvd drive?
