    I installed a CDRW in a HP XT983 that I was using in another PC and it works fine. I changed jumpers to slave. Problem is: The BIO's found it and describes it. I then went to My Computer and it was not there, I went to Device Mgr and it wasn't there either. So I reboot and go to the bio's again and it is no longer there. What's up with thing?

    Did you try the jumper on CS instead of slave? Jazz

    this pc has lost the slave cdrw again. I started to copy files to CD and the CDRW wasn't there again. What is going on here.
