    So, im upgrading from a regular cdrw drive to a dvdrw. The drive is on my second IDE master, and the jumper is set to master. MY computer recognizes the drive and boots up fine. HOwever, when i put in a cd i can hear the drive spin for a split second, then stop :( It will not read any type of cd. I have the 80slot IDE cable as well. Can anyone offer some advice? :)

    What make and model? That usually helps.
    Is the problem only with CDs or do you have problems DVDs as well?

    You got some good information on the other thread you started that you're not following through on.
