Installling Multiple DVD roms

By total geek ·
I am trying to install multiple DVDROMs using PCI Ide controller cards. It eas working but since one of the dvdr's has gone, and I treid to replace it with another one, I have not been able to get the computer to start up again. If I disconnect all dvd(4) drives from the controller card, the computer works fine.
Can anyone please help me with this?

Check the master/slave jumper on the new/
replacement DVD.

Try pulling the controller card and rebooting twice. This will allow the BIOS to start from scratch. If the card came with management software > add remove programs & remove. Then reinstall the PCI controller card. Q What make & model is the controller card? Q Is the controller card configuable? Q jumpers or software? Reinstall the dvds one at a time.

Boot with no DVD's connected, go into control panel -> system -> device manager -> CDrom and delete all DVD drives. Add one at a time with the correct OEM CD drivers. Should correct your problem.
