    I recently replaced my CD burner and im using ME, according to the CMOS settings the burner and main cd drive exist, but ME tells me that its never heard of a cd drive on the system. The new drivers just happen to be on a cd too. :confused:

    Not real sure that you are saying; but if you mean that since you added a new CD drive Windows doesn't see either one then check you switches (4 pins w/plastic jumper) on the back/bottom of the drives...One must be set for "Master" the other for "Slave"..There is a diagram somewhere on the drive close by the pins that show where the jumper goes for each setting.
    If that is NOT what you meant please repost and try to be a little more specific.

    You can set both jumpers on each device to cs as well.

    i put the pin connectors in ect they are all in, and the CMOS settings say that they exist so the motherboard knows that they exist, just windows wont acknowledge that fact.
