NEC 2500A not bootable?

Hi All,

Real noob to the dvd writer world. I just installed an NEC 2500A as master, with my old toshiba dvd-rom as slave on the secondary IDE.

Now, my computer will no longer boot from cd-rom.

Any suggestions?

I have the tdb firmware installed. Running an athlon on an asus-a7n8x deluxe.

Is this a problem with the NEC 2500A? Not bootable? Could anyone who tried to boot from the NEC please answer to this important question?

It’s working now, had a problem with the cable. New cable, all is well…
