Today I rarely see the master and slave settings used since not too long ago we started using IDE cables (80 conductor) which used the Cable Select setting.
Of course you could have a failed device so leave out the CDROM for now.
The SATA issue is something I can't discuss since no make, model of the mainboard was shared, it's bios version and how you set it's mode of the SATA. To move along faster I suggest you supply the link to it's manual.
I have a CD Drive (set to slave)
an IDE Hard Drive (set to master)
and a SATA Hard Drive attached to my desktop - MSI Motherboard
My desktop was working perfectly fine before, but i left for 2 months for a holiday and when i returned all the three components starting conflicting with each other.
I cant attach my IDE hard Drive and CD Drive together
and if i add my SATA hard drive then it shown some DISK Error
this also shown when i attach the CD Drive and my IDE HD together.
I have a USB CD Drive which i have attached to the desktop and also have attached the IDE Hard Drive to the desktop which works.
But i am loosing out on my other hard drive and CD Drive.
Anyone got any suggestions?
