XP Pro wont recognise 2nd DVD drive
Im not a complete Luddite when it comes to PC's, and somewhere at the back of my mind is the nagging sensation that I know how to fix this, but I cant seem to put my finger on it so any help would be very gratefully received:
I have a self built, now somewhat elderly PC comprising:
Asus P5B-V mobo with Intel core 2 duo CPU @ 2.1 Ghz Running XP Pro SP2
1 x 200GB sata system drive
2 x 500GB sata HDs in a RAID array
1 x 1TB sata drive
1 x 250 GB sata drive
1 x 150 GB sata drive
Also 1 x Sony DRU-810A dual layer DVD burner (IDE)
(there are also two further virtual CD/DVD players)
And I'm trying to install a 2nd burner - NEC ND3530A (IDE)
And therein lies the rub
It doesn’t seem to matter which jumper configuration or position on the cable I place them, the Sony consistently fails to get recognized. However they both show up just fine in the BIOS.
BTW this MOBO only has one IDE port, so I am forced to place them on the same ribbon.
Now I know for a fact Ive had a configuration like this working before, I just cannot for the life of me get it to work at the moment.
Any help gratefully received
