Default CDRW not being detected as pri or sec slave...

But it is being detected as pri or sec master. The problem is that I have
two harddrives (6GB and 4GB) as pri master and sec master respectively.
Neither of the hd's are detected if I set the jumpers to pri or sec slave
with the cdrw as master.

My old cdrw is still detected if I set it as slave, but its cd tray is
broken, hence the new purchase, a Samsung 52x24x52x. PC has mainboard
PCChips M748MR, 400MHz P2 with 128MB RAM. The pc is fairly old, so I don't
plan on buying a new hd.

Does anyone have any suggestions of a configuration that will have the cdrw
set as slave? Is it possible that the Samsung cdrw cannot run as a slave?

To clarify: if I set jumpers so that CDRW = pri master and HD1 = pri slave,
then HD1 is no longer detected.
If I set jumpers so that HD2 = sec master and CDRW = sec slave, then CDRW is
not detected and I get an "ATAPI INCOMPATIBLE Press F1 to Resume" error msg.
Similar scenario with HD1 = pri master and CDRW = pri slave.
If I set jumpers so that HD1 = pri master and HD2 = pri slave, then HD2 is
no longer detected.
If I set jumpers so that CDRW = sec master and HD1 = pri master while
disconnecting HD2, the CDRW is detected and works fine.

Why do you want Cdrom drives as a Master especially if the hard drive
is the main system drive?

It is unclear if you have tried this set up but surely you one both
harddrives on the primary ide, as master and slave and then
you cdrw as secondary master.

I don't see why you want your cdrw as slave? Maybe put the
okd crdw as master if you want.

I have 2 hd's on my primary which never have probs although
I sometimes have probs with my 2 cdroms on the secondary
when one will sometimes not work (often the master, with
the slave working OK). Sometimes ejecting the cd in the working
cdrom causes the 'failed' cdrom to spring into life.
