Troubleshooting DVD slimline adapter? ::scratches head::
Where would I be if one of my computer projects actually worked from the get go? I still don't know...I think my head would explode...anyway heres the deal. I hooked all of my components up finally today and heres what I got:
1000nit Planar 8.4 LCD
EPIA SP13000 Mobo
512 DDR 266
Samsung 160gb IDE HDD
Lite-On Slimline DVD/CD-RW drive
IDE - Slimline adapter purchased from mp3car.com
So I plug it all in just using an ATX power supply so I can at least load software to test everything out. Everything looks great. Change boot device to CD-ROM and pop in my OS and...BAM...DVD drive not detected. I've searched these forums and trust me I isolated this down to the DVD drive. The drive has no jumpers(the adapter didn't come with any). Still nothing being autodetected. This is all brand new so I don't know which is being the culprit...the adapter or the drive...anyone else run into this same problem?
Meanwhile...I guess I'll hook up a normal 5.25 drive and load my windows.
Thanks in advance!
