New opticals-pliz help!

hi everyone

i just bought a samsung sd-616 dvd-rom and a nec 3500a dvd rw, mainly to get rid of my awful btc cd-rw and dvd-rom… when windows xp pro booted, there was a balloon at the right corner of taskbar saying “new hardware found”. then, a message box saying that windows installed the software of new hardware and that i must restart the system. after restarting, the same thing. restart again, and the same messages again. and again… by the way, only the nec device is recognized, but doesn’t read anything and also makes windows explorer not responding. the samsung is not shown even at bios, though i’m pretty sure everything is connected right. do i have to connect them in a specific way at the IDE controller? i mean primary, secondary etc. i connected them just the way the eprevious devices were…

you need to check and make sure that the jumper settings are correct one drive should be set to master and the other to slave.

silly me…

thanx iss
