for some reason whenever i plug my CD rom drives in my comp doesnt boot. I checked the cables one at a time and for some reason when the master is in the comp doesnt wanna boot up. Only the slave works. is this a problem with the ATA cable or the CD drive. When both drives are plugged in i go to the BIOS to see if there is something i can do there but for somereason i can only see the slave CD drive. Is something wrong with the ATA cable.

Did you set the jumpers correct? If you've got one Master and the other Slave, or both set to Cable Select, then try a different 80 wire ribbon cable.
