LG 8320B.. & DVD-ROM Problems

#1

I purchased a LG 8320B CD-RW, and hooked it up with my Pioneer 106s DVD-Rom. I have it configured as follows:

LG 8320B Secondary master
Pioneer 106S Secondary Slave.

The busy light is on all the time on the Pioneer, and it does not show up in the BIOS. (The lg does) I have tried different cables, and am sure they are all correct. Bit of a newbie to all this so any help appreciated.:confused:


#2

I know that you said that your cables are correct but it really does sound like the cable on the dvd-rom drive is backwards.


#3

If you already had your dvd did you change the jumper to slave on it ?


#4

Tried everything, every jumper setting and cable combination. Made the DVD master, and the CD-RW slave. Same thing busy light stays on, not recognized in BIOS. I guess it’s deffective. any other ideas. Thanks for your help. :confused:


#5

does the IDE speed matter? or is there only 1 speed of cable? i’d suggest trying to start up with ONLY the dvd connected.


#6

Thanks, but been there done that. It has to be problem with the DVD player. I’ve done everything. Thanks any way.


#7

Took my Pioneer 106S back to vendor, he quickly hooked it up, and guess what… dead as a door nail! Well, at least I’m getting another one. Thanks again for all your help.:cool:
