My ‘regular’ dvd burner is an LG GSA H42N, and its had some trouble reading one particular track on a commercial cd.
So, Im trying to install my DVD rom drive from my old Gateway select 1000 pc. I have an invoice on it from 2003, and its referred to as 'HLDS 16X DVD DRIVE’. Ive installed it in an empty bay next to my GSA H42N drive, and have connected up the 4 pin power cable and the ide ribbon drive cable.
When I turn the pc on however, it pauses and wont boot. It doesnt seem to be able to recognize the drive. Im running XP Pro and my motherboard is a Biostar TForce 550.
Is the architecture of my current PC with the Biostar motherboard incompatible with the DVD rom drive from my old Gateway pc im trying to install? Plug n Play sure doesnt seem to be working with this drive…
