    I am trying to install a new CDRW in my machine. It is an Acer CRW2010a. (20x10x40) The machine refuses to accept it. I installed it at first as a slave to my DVD-Rom. Upon reboot I get to the Windows splash screen and my computer starts to reboot again by itself in an endless loop. I tried every slave /master combination and even tryed it by itself withe DVD unplugged. Is this a BIOS setting problem? Settings are on AUTO for primary and secondary drives. Power cable is okay the door opens. Should I slave the CDRW to the HD?
    I have the following system:
    PII 300 meg w/ brand new motherboad.
    192 Mb of RAM
    Toshiba CD/DVD ROm (works fine when reconnected)
    OS-Win98

    Could I have a bad CDRW drive? Acer has not replied to my email yet.
