i have allready installed a 16x dvd drive, so i installed a 52x cdrw, the thing is they dont work together only when you pull out the ide cable for one of them does the dvd work!

i changed the bios for the cdrw and it worked, but now the dvd drive is now working correctly!

can you help me?

thanks

Have you set the jumpers on the back of each drive to their respective cable correctly. Master & slave. And connected the correct cable to each one.

Normally the black connector is master and the grey slave.

Sorry I missed the bit about the bios. What exactly did you change?

i can see and set the drives in bios
but in my computer they dont show! only the 16x drive shows!

What are you on about you don't see any cables. If you fitted two drives how can you not see any cables. I would suggest that both CDRW and DVD are on the same Ribbon cable Red wire facing the power plug and onto pin one on the Motherboard. Set the DVD to Master on the End of the Ribbon cable, CDRW on middle connectore set as Slave. Bothe on IDE2. go into BIOS and just auto detect, do not set to AUTO
