I've added a 2nd printer and assigned it to the LPT 2 port (for which I had to buy a seperate parallel port and add it to my tower). It works great but it knkocks out my CDROM. My CDROM returns when I disconnect the printer cable from the tower.

Why does this happen and how can I fix it?

My thanks in advance

if possible, try the card in a different slot, IRQ conflict comes to mind......
