I have a dell dimension 4700 bought in dec 04 when I ordered I had a dvd r/w a single drive, but later I wanted to speed up the copying process and I added an additonal cd/dvd drive.
The instruction said to insert at slave jack and so I did, put back the shield everything is fine.
Eveytime I boot my machine the new ide or cd/dvdrom drive is recognized I have to go to the properties of my computer and click hardware and device manager and select the ide drives and scan for new addition to make that cd/dvd rom available.
Dell does not help me in this issue as I did not purchase the cd/dvd rom from them I was hoping some one would help to figure this out and if I missed any setting at the bios.
Thanks in advace as this might really be a boring posting but I'm desperate to fix this issue so pls anyone help me
