I just bought an LG Super multi dvd burner.

As far as the inner working of a computer go, I have no idea, so I follorwed the instructions as best I could. I connected it to the same belt as the hard drive, and put the other cables in too (the orange, yellow and black ones). It has power, and will open/close if you press the button, but I can't get Windows to recognize it. I installed the software, etc. but I have no idea. I couldn't even understand the directions (the whole slave/master thing....???)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Andrew.

You have to make sure you have the jumpers set up correclty on the DVD burner. Take a look at the cable going from the motherboard to your DVD burner (it's the one that's long and flat) Is there only one items attached to it, aka just your dvd burner or is the cable attached to something else as well as to your DVD burner?

I figured it out. My cd drive had the jumpers on the csl (?) thing, so I moved them over to master, set the dvd on slave, rebooted and it recognized the dvd drive right away.

Thanks again fenor, you've been alot of help tonight.
