I just received my new samsung dvd rom drive today and i tried installing it in my pc
In my pc i currently have a Toshiba dvdrom (1 slave) and a pioneer dvdrw burner (1 master)
I turned off the pc, disconnected the power cable and the wider cable away from the toshiba and plugged it into the samsung. I then started the pc, and my pc would not read the samsung. It just read the pioneer as 1 master.
I then shut off the pc again, and disconnected both wires from the pioneer, and turned on the pc. The pc then was able to read the samsung as 1 master. But then, the pc would just automatically shut off, when i did this after a minute or 2.
So now i'm confused and i know its something simple. I then wired back the pioneer. Pioneer went to 1 master, and pc could not find samsung. I went into BIOS and my IDE were already set to auto. I didnt make any changes. I can only see the pioneer in bios but not the samsung.
Am i suppose to change something in BIOS? The pc will not read both drives, when installed together, only the pioneer. When i had just the samsung wired, it would read it as 1 master in bios.
Please explain to me very detailed, because im not that pc smart and its easy to confuse me
