    I will explain myself again.
    On IDE1 I have my HDD as master.
    On IDE2 I have as slave the CDRW and the HDD rack has got any jumpers, i have to select he jumpers on each HDD i put on the rack.
    can it be that the cd has to be master?

    àçé, òëùéå áòáøéú áùáéìé.....
    The HDD has to be the master.... if you have 2 HDDs the on is the master the second is the slave and the CDrw is a secondery slave.... try what [cpk]bastid sayd
