I have recently noticed a problem where I can only use one drive at once. If I insert a disc into drive B drive while the drive A is in use, drive B won't read the disc at all and just says "Please insert a disk into drive F:" or words to that effect. The same thing happens with both drives.
Anyway, both my drives are IDE and they were both set to Cable Select. So I read somewhere to try setting the jumpers to Master and Slave. I checked the instructions for both of my drives and set my Plextor to Master and the Pioneer to Slave.
Now as soon as I turn on my PC, the Pioneer ejects automatically, and continues ejecting every time I close it. Neither drive is not recognised by the computer at all, not even in the BIOS.
If I set the Pioneer to Master and the Plextor to Slave, only the Pioneer is recognised in the BIOS, and in Windows the Pioneer is fine, but the Plextor is not detected. Something else that I noticed is that if I "Eject" or "Close Tray" for the Pioneer from My Computer, both drives eject/close!
What's going on?!
