You didn't tell what type IDE cable you used as well how the jumpers are set on each drive.
Have you setup IDE devices before?
I am trying to fix a Win98 SE system with a DVD-ROM and a CD-ROM drive attached.
The problem is that when I start windows with both plugged into to motherboard the system takes forever to start up.
When I disconnect CD-ROM drive and leave the DVD plugged in it starts faster, but it doesn't show the DVD-ROM in the My Computer screen??
I have started the system up and entered the BIO's screen and can only see the DVD drive, even if both drive s are plugged in???? But as I said, the DVD drive doesn't appear in the My Computer screen.
Does anybody know anything about this? Is this a driver problem or is the controller bad or is it something else??
Thanks a bunch in advance.
