Basic Question about installing RW CD pl

By jon.yankee ·
When I install a second CD drive into my computer do I need to change the setting in the BIOS CMOS or will my computer automatically set it up when loading the software?

Basic Question about installing RW CD pl

Probably not. However a good rule of thumb to follow is when installing any new hardware always check the BIOS settings. Try just an auto-detect Hard Disks (dependant on which BIOS you have) and that should rule out any problems. You should really need to do this only when installing a new hard drive although it wont hurt to do it all the time.

There is a little jumper setting on the back of the CD-Rs and CDRWs. My suggestion to you is that you set the CDRW as master, and the CDR as slave on the same controller, leaving the HD alone.
Good Luck!
