DVD-RW Drive doesnt work when IDE is inserted

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all.

I've just built a new rig and i have a 20x DVD-RW Drive IDE which i am trying to install. I connect the IDE cable and the power cable and the Drive doesnt even power up, But the second i remove the IDE Cable from the drive, the drive powers up. I don't know what i'm doing wrong here, it should power up and my computer should read it.

Any suggestions welcome .

Regards.

sounds like a jumper problem, move the jumper on your hard drive to slave
