Installing 2nd CD drive

#1

Hi,

I have just purchsed a BTC CD-RW cd-writer. I already have one DVD drive on the Secondary IDE. I presume I have to make this CD-RW as slave on the secondary IDE.
Can some tell me what the jumper setting has to be to make the CD-RW as slave?

Thanks

Pali

Hi Pali !

Welcome to the forum !

You just said it - as SLave,
i.e the middle setting, which is usually between the Cable Select ( on the left ) and MAster ( on the right ) pins.

If you are putting the drive in the 2nd part of the chain, make it slave. The dvd will have the jumper on the mast and the cd-rw will have the slave jumpered. You can switched them around
