Secondary port or secondary ribbon port?
Are the slave/master jumpers correct?
Hey guys question, I just got a TEAC slim line cd rom (cd-224e) I got the IDE to Slime line adapter. I plugged into the second IDE channel on my M10000, I turn it on and the light on the cd-rom stays solid, I cant open it and the mo-bo cant see it.
and did you remember to power it?
from what i've heard, when you plug in the IDE cable but forget power, the drive tends to light up but not work. also, CDROMs usually allow you to open them even if they have power but no IDE cable... so if you have power you should at least be able to open it.
But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

The Secondary IDE port on the mobo, There are no jumpers for this drive its cable select and yes its powered.
does the IDE cable have the notch in it to ensure it goes in correctly? I know with floppy drives if you put the cable on the wrong way the light comes on solid.
What about flipping the cable? Or a whole different cable?
Just a couple ideas. Ive seen some wierd cable configurations before, usually only for floppy drives though.
If it's Cable Select, then you need a special cable, don't you? (SWAG) And I think you'd have to set the primary drive to Cable Select as well...

Going off Hard Drives, cable select is pretty common, I think its' the default shipping configuration...at least for places like Seagate, and the cable the drives come with have always worked for me. No idea what would be different for a CD drive though.
Hmm Different cable for cable select huh?
Ya the IDE cable only fits one way.
