\Device\CdRom1, has a bad block

I have two DVD burners is this the top one or the bottom one? [They are both set to cable select] [IDE]

This is my set up from a side view.

I would think it's the top one. That's where the Master would be, I believe, it's been a while.

Personally, I would put them on seperate IDE's, if you have 2 on your mobo, if not, they I would manually put 1 in Master the other in Slave. I've had times when the computer got "confused" over them. But that's just me, somebody else may have something else... :thumbsup:

If they are on the same IDE cable then they should be set as Master and Slave. In the drawing, the one on the top should be the Master, and the one on the middle connector should be the Slave. The jumpers should be set accordingly.

If this doesn't solve your problem let us know.

//: A side note, as SATA hdds and optical drives are becoming the norm, motherboard manufacturers are only supplying one IDE connector on most motherboards.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

That's what I always thought, just yesterday my buddy called with a problem and right on the ribbon cable it was stamped "Master" on the middle plug and "Slave" on the end...

What's going on??? Are they deliberately trying to drive me MAD!!?? :thumbsup:

Bad block errors can be caused by a bad/scratched CD. Try another one and see if the error recurs.

Dunno, you'd have to investigate the settings for each drive in Disk Management.

If there's a disk in each drive, take one out. Use the other one and see if there are bad block errors.
If there aren't, then try the other disk in the other drive
If there are, try another good disk in the drive to see if it's repeated.

Disk Management is the place to go. Go to Start...Run...and type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter - it'll tell you there (if you've got a CD/DVD in the drive) which is Disk 0 and which is Disk 1.
