I want to put a CD Writer into my HP6615 computer, however when I connect the Writer to the cable the BIOS won't find it, but when I connect the original CD to the cable it finds it.
How can I get the BIOS to see the writer or is there only certain writers that this model of HP computer will see.

Check the back of the cd writer and see if the little black link is over the same pins as the CDROM you are replacing. Moving the link sets the CD to be the master (MA) or slave (SL) drive.

Tried that and still nothing.
