Having major issues installing my new Pioneer 112d DVD rewriter. I have set this as the slave & my existing DVD reader as the master using the jumpers & these are connected via IDE cables. The PC boots up OK but neither drive will read any discs.

Any idea please ?

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if they show up there? And do they show up in your BIOS? :thumbsup:

test the pioneer connected at the end of a new 80 wire cable(never use the old 40 conductor), have the drive jumpered master and connected to a power lead all by itself and closest to power supply

leave the older drive disconnected

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
