I just purchased an ASUS DRW1608P3SSLV from Newegg.com for my computer, and I have 2 questions:
First is the jumper configuration. I wanted to set up up as a “slave” since I already have a master Combo DVD-R/CD-RW drive installed, but there are no markings on the back telling me how to position the jumper, nor is there any info in the manual or on the ASUS web site about how to position this jumper! It was on the far right when it came out of the box, and the computer didn’t recognize either drive when I installed it in that position. Then I simply pulled the jumper off, and now both drives are recognized … but I have not yet tried burning a DVD. Does anyone know if leaving the jumper off is correct, or should I put it back on in a different position?
Second question is about the 40-pin audio plug. The drive did not come with a 4-pin audio cable, but the instructions say I need to connect that plug to my sound card or mother board. (My other drive also has no cable in place.) I’ve found that audio CD’s play back loud and clear using Windows Media Player, but DVD’s are playing back with the sound so low that it’s almost inaudible. Do I need to get a 4-pin audio cable and connect it, or is there some system setting that i need to change to get the DVD audio to play back properly?
Any help would be greatly appreciated: firstname.lastname@example.org
