Hi,[QUOTE=FredWarner;2486816]After getting your message I changed the jumper from “Master” to CSE as that is what was on the old SONY drive.[/quote]If the drive is the only drive on the cable, then Master should be fine either (perhaps even better). Please check the manual of the drive for installation hints.
(Why do they call this an 80 pin drive instead of 40 when it really has only 39 pins?)
I talked about 80 wires, not pins Look here to see the difference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Technology_Attachment
I turned computer back on and went to Device Manager. LG drive is listed but has yellow circle w/exclamation point and (Driver has been disabled…Code 32) message. (…)
I went to LG site, as suggested by Best Buy and found 2 versions of firmware.
NEVER, NEVER ever try a firmware update if a drive is not properly working!
Ok, let’s start again.
Uninstall the drive from Device Manager and shut down the computer.
Now I am assuming this is the only drive on the cable:
[li]Set the jumper on the drive to Master position.
[/li][li]Plug the [B]blue [/B]connector of the cable into the motherboard
[/li][li]Plug the [B]black [/B]connector to the drive - don’t use the [B]grey [/B]connector.
[/li][li]If your cable has only black connectors, then your cable is not suitable since this would be the 40 wired variant.
[/li][li]Reattach the power plug and start your computer.
