install cd-r drive
Posted 02 February 2002 - 08:47 PM
i currently have a dvd rom and i just added a new cd-r drive.
i just connected the cable from motherboard and the power supply just like i did with the dvd-rom.
but then when i go to windows, it only reads one of them. how to add the other one?
if i disconnect one of them and plug in to the other one, it works. but it can't display both of them at the same time..
any help out there...??

If you want to play cds and you have allreay connected a cdrom to your sound card you can connect the cdr via the front side to your sound card's line in , or the digital way (depends on your system ).

the bios will read the new drive but when you go to windows , the new drives(i.e.cd-r drive) won't show up in "my computer". in order to show it up, you need to click on "add new hardware"--> it'll just search and it says it's already found , and the fact that IT HAS always been in the system , it just won't show up.(only shows the other cd rom drive.
after you click "ok", you will then see the two symbol for the 2 drives.
but it's very annoying to always do this all the time and there's something wrong for sure...just don't know what.
ps: btw, for solving the problem with cmos thing, i just re-setup the date, year, clock and month. that's it.

I found a solution , and it worked for me .
If you try to reinstall with add new hardware and you get code 31 , 32 , or 39 , you go to th registry and follow this instructions :
A. Remove any Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely from
the following registry key:
