First off I am some what of a computer ninny, so please excuse me lol.
Ok I bought a SAMSUNG Black Burner with LightScribe - OEM for very cheap.
I'm having problems hooking it up. I've hooked up several devices before with no problems.
My computer is the following: Hewlett-Packard Pavillion Media Center Computer (Pentium 4).
The dvd burner has a small port on the back (with one long slot and one short slot, right next to each other but divided). My IDE cables don't into the back of the burner. I plug in a small black cable and gave the burner power(?) i.e. it opened and closed but did not read the disc. Also The black (presumably power cord thingy?) isn't long enough to reach my burner when it would be placed in a secure position.
Can someone tell me what I have to do to install this, my dvd burner didn't come with instructions;-(
Do I need a new type of IDE cables or something?
