    I bought another dvd burner and once its in my old one doesnt work anymore.

    Should says NEC not OEC, Shows up this way in the BIOS as well. Lite On works just fine but the NEC doesnt work when lite on dvd burner is plugged in. So I have it disabled right now it makes the system run slower with it enabled. why ? I was thinking its cause they're on the same cable but ive had dozens of other drives on same ide cables without problems but never had dual dvd burners so maybe thats the difference? :hsd:

    Have you tried putting one burner on each cable? That would be my first step at troubleshooting.

    I have one cable, two on the end and one. Originally I had a CD burner and the NEC burner but decided to get a faster burner but keep my NEC. Lite on works with NEC plugged in or nto doesnt matter, NEC only works when lite on is not plugged in... no idea ??

    Jumpers.. you are using a cable select "cable", bad controller on mobo

    take your pick

    actually it wouldnt burn dvd +r until I did the update so I tried that as well.

    Seems like all the bases are covered but doesnt appear I can run the both together, Im gonna look at possibly turning it into an external if thats doable just find a case for it
