    Default Re: Windows cant see my new DVR drive. Why?

    I wasnt thinking about IDE / SATA at the time. Saw this neat DVD drive on trade me and bought. Then I realised what I had done and now am trying to get it to work.
    Have also bought V8 Supercars 3 in anticipation the drive will go.
    Late last night I unplugged the floppy from Ide3 and swapped it with the converter which was in Ide2. Now the bios post test thingy says "Floppy failed" and cant see the DVD drive.
    Soon I am going to try plugging the converter into Ide1 with the hard drive and see if that helps.
    Everything appears to be plugged in properly but I'll give them another hit with the big hammer to make sure.
    Fingers crossed.
    It's so much easier to suggest solutions when you don't know too much about the problem.

    Dont panic, dont panic.
    Its working now.
    I unplugged the hard drives from IDE 1, put them in IDE 2, put the converter in IDE 1, plugged all the paraphanlia in the back again, turned it on and presto: it all works as it should.
    Thanks all for your help and suggestions.
