  1. My PC has a DVD drive. I am trying to add a CD drive. The DVD is set to master. The CD is set to slave. The CD will not work or show up in hardware. If I unplug the DVD the CD works. What's up?

    Just to be clear, the CD is set to slave by the jumper on the back of it?

    hmmm i would check out the manual, if you find nothing useful i would check the warranty out as it might be a fault.
