Default master slave question [lite-on; 48x12x48; winXP]

sponsored links

 
ok here it goes

i have just recieved my lite-on dvd and burner drives. (by the way thanks everyone in this users group for the great advise i just trashed my yamaha 20 speed its sucks my lite-on burns a audio cd in half the time)

before i had aranged my drives to be

master cable: hard drive master, creative dvd slave
slave cable: hard drive master, yamaha slave

now when i try this configuration with my new drives it wont let me. it doesnt even recognize any of my drives. so i had to make my dvd and burner drives the master drives. and my hard drives my slaves.

i was having problems with this. my computer was acting jumpy and was freezing up. so i made my cd rom and burner drive auto select.

now my problem is gone it seems everything is running good now. what the hell is auto select. what the hell is going on? why cant i just have configured my drives as before. it doesnt make sense to me.

thanks,

Default uhhhh

ok never mind about what i just posted. i rebooted and right after i loged into windows and everthing was starting up my system just restarted. i tried 3 other time and it has done the same thing. so i made my dvd and cd burner drive master. im stumped. i think my bois is set up right. wel but of course it is everthing is outodetect with these p4t mother boards. i must be missing something else. i guess ill go look for some updated drive, i dont know.

In the long run, you'd be better off just getting another controller card and avoiding all the s/m issues. They're really a bargain at ~US25

There is no need for a new controller card, I think.
The hard drives should really be set as masters, and the slower devices as slaves.
Are you sure the jumpers were set correctly on your new drives?
