Installing your optical drives is an easy process that requires a bit of attention to detail.Here’s an easy-to-follow-installation guide:Gather up all your drives. Many cases use removable drive rails or cages to house drives. Use theincluded screws to attach your drives to the rails or cage, and slide them into the case. Forexternally accessible drives such as a DVD recorder, you can save time by installing one drive railand sliding the drive in for a test fitting to make sure that its front is flush with the case. Whenthe drives are installed, connect power and data cables to each one. Parallel ATA drives use wide,flat data cables that can be installed only in the correct way.1.First, if your PC is running, shut it down and turn off the power switch.2.

Attach the 4-pin power adapter in the drive.

There should be an entry for Primary IDE channel - Slave. Make sure this is enabled or your drive will only operate at very slow speed.I need to adjust the jumper settingson the drives, which were both set to master. I changed them both to CSEL. Now Vista reports that I have 3 DVD drives. Now Vista reports that I have 3 DVD drives. Trying to
