Just fitted a new dvd re writer in the place of my old cdrw. It works well, but now my computer seems to have lost my dvd rom player. How can i put this right.
Thanks in advance.

Check that the cable is properly connected. If both drives are on the same cable, the DVD RW should be at the end and the ROM should be on the second plug. The jumpers on the DVD RW should be set to Master and the ROM to slave.

Hi if you take your dvd rw out & look at the back of it near the audio lead there is a set of pins and there should be a small little black or blue coloured cover if so change it over to master as per the diagrame on back of dvd and like wise on the cdrom o'k I hope this may help? you
