I just built my first computer. I am pulling parts from my old computer. When I installed XP, I did not have the DVD drive slaved into the CDRW as in my old computer. After a successful install, I tried to rehook it just as before. Now it only recognizes the CDRW. The DVD drive is no where to be found. It isn't even seen in Add New Hardware.
The drives are hooked through the IDE Master. I have 2 SATA hard drives. If I move the CDRW and DVD drives to the IDE second, neither are recognized.
The mobo is ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe (775). CPU Intel 3.2.
Do I have to reinstall XP with the DVD drive connected? I hope not...
