Trying to set up an Optorite+/- RW DVD drive

  MIKE 16:50 08 Aug 05

I decided to upgrade to an LG Double layer tri format DVD drive from my old Optorite +/- RW DVD drive. The reason for change was when trying to format +RW discs with InCD (with the Optorite drive) I was just getting coasters. The new drive now works a treat. My question is I want to put my Optorite drive as a slave to my C: drive (running XP pro) before replacing the Optorite I could play DVD's and record to DVD's just not format. When seting up using either Master/Slave or cable/select my Pc hangs at the Windows log screen. If I remove the IDE cable from the Optorite drive, boot up is OK. Any ideas please as I seem to be going round in circles. Sorry for the the long ramble.

Make sure your master c drive jumper is set to 'master with slave', as some drives require this when using a slave
plus make sure Optorite DVD is set as slave.
