Hardware Installation Problem - LTR 52246s

I bought a LiteOn 52246s today.

It was in Buslink packaging, but i recocknized the “Smart Burn” sticker, and thought it was a liteon…and it was! so im all happy and stuff, till i bring it home and pop it in the place of my old crappy oem 4x mitsumi cdrw…

winxp wont detect it, OR my dvdrom in the slot below it.

on top of that, it takes FOREVER to boot…(just hangs with a black screen and a white blinking cursor in the upper left), but after i hit control + alt+ delete once, it loads…

so i figured i’d switch the drives back to see if the mitsumi would still work, and it does…

now, up until like last year, i was COMPLETELY terrified of opening up my pc’s. i started small with ram and stuff, and graduated to pci/agp cards, and this was the first time i’ve done anything with ide stuff. i figured it wouldnt be too hard, seeing as all i had to do was replace the drive, i didnt have to attatch any new cables.

can anyone help?!?

i think ill try switching the master and slave cables next…

PLEASE HELP!!!

im sick of 4x burning…i wanna use my 52 x goodness!

sounds like you may have the jumpers wrong.

ya switching the master/slave cables worked…
