Hi I’m pretty much a novice when it comes to installing hardware so forgive me if you’ve seen all this before.
I’ve just installed my new NEC 3520A drive - it sits on the same ribbon cable as the drive I’ve removed, and there’s also has a second older DVD drive attached to it. The new NEC is set to MASTER and the old drive (which is in the middle of the cable) to SLAVE.
Although Windows XP recognises the drive, and shows no problems with it or its driver, the drive doesn’t read any form of CD/DVD - but it does however recognise that a CD has been put in. The other older drive works fine.
What am I doing wrong if anything, or is it a faulty drive??
i’m using an nVidea GeForce graphics card, a Yamaha SW1000XG soundcard - could there be a conflict of some sort??
Please could you help, I’m getting a bit desparate now…
