#1

Hi, I have a Dell Dimension 2400 and have just installed a LG GSA-H10ABAL DVD burner. Eveything seems to be OK (although i havent tried burning yet), it shows as my E Drive in My Computer. However, every time i turn my computer on a black screen appears saying “1 Primary Drive unknown” (or something along those lines) and i have to push F1 to continue or F2 to go to settings? Any ideas whats up?
Thanks for any help

Are the master/slave jumpers on the new DVD drive [and the other drive on the same cable, if there is one] set correctly?

If you are not sure, read the [B]Step 4: Connect the PC-DVD to Your Computer[/B] section here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/storage/7519C/hardware.htm

It deals with installation of a different piece of hardware, so ignore anything related to the decoder card. The rest is a good, detailed description of how to deal with IDE channel selection, cabling and master/slave configuration, that applies to all optical drive installations.
