  1. hi guys this happened to me a few months back.
    this morning i tried everything...nothing works,and i i remember there is a person from dell here at the forum....well this is what happen.
    --everytime i reboot i get
    ;"secondary hard disk drive 0 not found"
    ;"secondary hard disk drive 1 not found"
    if i press F1 it works normally,also i can see the drives listed at my computer labeled correctly,if i turn off pc ,and then, turn on pc everything is ok.,,but at every reboot i have this black screen booting problm.
    myp is a dell dimension 8200,xp pro/sp3 768 rdram.
    -in device manager everything looks correct..

    ok when i swap cables pc boots fine..the problem is that dvd player[D] display wrong label ,it plays cd/movies,,but it shows [E] ..E is dvd burner...
    DVD BURNER plays ok no problem and it shows "E" ,,no problem..

    i bet what i need is to change label drives,problem is don't know how to..

    pictrures shows wrong,when swapped cables both plays.

    picture shows "right" in proper position..but when reboots i got
    "Secondary hard disk drive 0,1 not not found at bootup"
