IDE Optical Drives

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My computer does not see my optical drives. I have tried 2 different ones, fearing the first one (LG 52x32x52x CDRW) was dead. But they will not work. Is there something with the jumpers i can do? PLEASE HELP ME

Make sure the drive on the end of the cable is set to Master and the one in the middle of the cable is set to Slave.
