This is going to be different depending on the CD-ROM make/model and the hard drive make/model. Can you post these please?

you need to give us the exact name and model number of you hard disk and cd-rom. usually on the top of the drive is s sticker with jumper settings. your hard disk should be master and cd-rom should be slave (middle). set both drives to cable select otherwise make hard disk master, and cd-rom slave.

dave, are they always in that exact order? i think that's why many of us are asking for his model.
