1. Please note that just above the text editor (where you enter a question on the forum) is the following paragraph, and if certain information is not present in your question, our reply may not be very helpful:
Tip: If you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution.
2. If devices are recognized as attached peripherals they will be listed as resident on the "System Configuration Summary" (BIOS Startup Screen) at boot. Press the Pause key as soon as you see this screen start displaying so it can be stopped and read (sometimes you may have to press Esc just before if you're a little slow and it goes past or the thumbs get in the way). Press any other key to continue. If the CMOS/BIOS does not recognize and display peripheral information on this screen, Windows certainly will not, and if jumpers are wrong it'll interfere with any other drive as well.
I recently put in a Dominator 4-in-1 CDRW+DVD-ROM.(from MadDog Multimedia) I don't know if the jumpers are correct. I can't burn a cd. It tells me to insert a blank cd. I was wondering if the jumpers have anythi ng to do with this? I'm knew the all this!
