did you connect all of the drives to the proper connector on the cables?

EG: IDE1 = hdd (master)

IDE2 = DVD (master) cd (slave)

so, make sure that the hdd is the only device on the first ide cable, and the cd and dvd drives should be on the other cable. make sure all the drives have power, and make sure that the floppy is connected correctly. and the memory card reader, was it ide, or usb?

Listen to my music! and random/funny videos XD
