  • Is this a SATA ODD or PATA ODD?

     

    1. If PATA, are you using a 40 pin or 80 pin IDE cable? Try switching to a 40 pin IDE cable and only have your DVD-RW drive connected (do not connect a second drive).

     

    2. If it's an OEM system, set the jumper to cable select

     

    3. If it detects and reads fine when you get to the desktop, you should be okay

     

    If you would like to troubleshoot some more, shut down and start adding another variable until you find out what the issue is.
