Welcome to Bleepin scarlett

WD hard drives have a special jumper setting when they are alone on the cable, it's called single drive

If you add another drive that messes it up

It's a bad idea to put a burner on the same cable anyway, like thrying to get 2 cars passing each other on a one lane bridge

I would install the burner jumpered master on the second cable, just pull the original drive(dvdrom whatever)

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