I have a strange problem. I have a Aopen mx4gr motherboard with a P4 1.8 gig, 256 ddr ram and a dvdrom as well as a burner. The problem I am having is when i try to hook up the buner and the dvdrom. I can get the burner or the dvdrom to work on their own but not togerther. If i put a IDE cable on the motherboard that can only plug one IDE device into it every thing works fine with either the burner or the dvdrom but when i use a daul IDE cable to be able to plug both IDE devices in at the same time then my computer does not pick up either IDE devices. Even if i try to use just one of the IDE devices on the dual cable it is still not seeing it. It only works when i use a cable that allows only one device to pluged in. Can any one help me solve this please.
