Default DVD+R install prob

Well i just bought a gameing machine.. and well it had a CD-RW and a DVD rom drives.. i took out the CD+RW and put in a DVD+R and befor i did the two previous drives were running off Secoundary IDE with nothing going to master or slave.. so i thought i could put in the DVD+R without it being master.. but when i do it doesn't reconzie any drives.. but if i unplug the Dvd ROM drive and just have the DVD+R drive hooked up it works.. but once i hook up that DVD rom drive it cant reconize either drives... just dont understand it reconized the CD+rw and the DVD rom when they were hooked up but why wont it hook up with a DVD+R and both drives work? and i dont have a cord to run from motherboard to DVD+R drive to make it master.. so i thought i could just hook both drives up to secoundary IDE like the drives were befor.. can anyone help me?
