I have been digging through the threads on this subject of installing the Benq 1655, and am still getting nowhere. Here is my scenerio I hope someone can help:
My system is a Dell Dem. 8200, the processor is a P4 1.8ghz 400mhz, I have 40pin ide connectors. I have updated my BIOS Flash with the newest Dell Bios. I had a CDRW on the master (i think, it could have been on the slave, but I only had the CDRW no other CDROM) and took it out and replaced it with the DVDRW from Benq. At first the computer recongized it and built the drivers and actually read a DVD. Yesterday I turned the computer on for the first time since I installed it on the computer and now it says that windows has built the drivers but can not find the drive. When I first put the drive in I set the jumpers like the CDRW was set, the CS setting, not the master or slave. I have tried to set the jumpers at the master and slave settings on different attempts, but just the same thing. The bios sees the benq on the ide 1 setting, but windows doesn’t. What am I doing wrong? Also I will be adding a DVD rom just for reading. Would I set that as the master and the DVDRW as a slave?
Thanks, I hope this is the right section, I thought about putting it in the newb section.
