[QUOTE=shags72;2028058]I have a hp 7360n media center pc that I had a hp840b drive go bad in and I put in a samsung sh203n which seemed to work fine but now the factory dvdrom drive isn’t recognised in the device manager or my computer. This drvie was on the same ide cable as the 840b. The new drive is a sata drive. Here recently I was having a problem with a sound cycling out ot my speakers and everytime it cycled it would lag my mouse. Don’t know if that has anything to do with it but I thought I would put it in. It has now stopped. Could this be a motherboard or a power supply going bad? I really don’t know. I did scan for hardware changes but nothing showed up. I put a disc in and it spun up but then nothing happened, and it didn’t show up in explorer. Thanks in advance.
PS I did use that drive (I don’t know if I should have) to scan a disc with dvd shrink to burn wiht the new samsung drive so it did work about two weeks ago.[/QUOTE]
You lost me does the Samsung have a IDE or Sata connector??? If the dvdrom is the single unit on the cable you should take the jumper off to tell the compute it is the only hardware on the cable itself. As for the sound what do you mean exactly? What size is the new drive itself and did you reboot with the computer to the factory settings? If you did that you should check HP site for your model and download their drivers and software updates. Be good if you be more specific if that is factory mouse that came with computer or replacement mouse you bought…What version of O/S are you running?
