Secondary IDE cable malfunction?

Post by midnightlo » Tue, 02 Mar 2004 04:04:07


Recently i removed both the devices (a CDR-RW and a 2nd hard drive)
off my secondary IDE cable in order to install them on a new computer
(a white box) i purchased, only to find out that that computer was
faulty, i believe the CPU is dead. ANyways i reinstalled the devices
onto the same cable the same way i had b4, and all it recognized was
the CDR-RW, and shortly there after it coudln't even find the
secondary IDE calbe, under device manager it says that the device is
either not present, not working properly, or does not have the drivers
installed. Ive tried replacing the cable and it didnt work. I know the
cable is in the right way as well. If anyone has any sugestions to
whats up with it it wud be greatly apprieciated. Thnx
