Hi,

I am replacing a faulty CDR with a nero 6 Memorex suite.

I have the old out and need to know should the jumpers on the new one, (CDRW) be the same as the

Old ( CDR)



The old is a
Compaq CD Rom Drive
CT : 743A01KKM30 op
CDR 8484B (AS27)
Compaq PN. 212489-680


the new

Memorex CDRW
PN.32023257
Model MRX523252AJI-2-11
BOM PN. 53957443


I have found the instructions say to use old jumper setting, I am hoping it has taken into coinsideration that thea CDR is being replaced by a CDRW ?


Thats funny I have adjusted the jumper settings but there were only two connections when I took the old out, . . the cable and the power connection,

it seems that the sound recording might have something to do with this ?

Anyone know what I'm doing ?

Is it hooked up to the cable all by itself? There should be a diagram tag or directions stamped on the body that shows what the different jumper positions are. Just make sure they're set the same as the replacement

standard procedure calls for the new drive to be jumpered the same and put the same position on the cable

there are small pins with a black jumper on the back of the drive, the 3 settings are CS ma sl

cable select, master and slave

the only problem is newer drives and newer cables don't always work the same as old one

make sure the jumpers are set the same, and test

bios should see the new drive and windows also

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

I installed just about everything from the Nero 6 Memorex suite, Installation CD

and I am getting, Cannot copy to CD ROM is Read Only !

Can you please tell me what I'm missing ? !

I did not connect the wires that go to the jumper part they were not connected to the last CD-ROM ?

I checked the Compaq 4403, it doesn't have a jumper connection either, and it saves files to the CD.

I am looking for the info tool curiously they refer to it but skip it on the CD, am hoping to find it in the manual.

Be back with reply.

sounds like a dumb question but are you absolutely positive the cd in there is blank?

i know it sounds dumb but i spent a long time trying to figure out what died on my dvdrw untill i realized the dvd i was using wasnt even inserted...

the jumper settings wouldnt effect the read only status of the drive, so it seems to be hooked up correctly
