View Full Version : Sony DVD Burner troubles...

12-07-05, 08:42 AM
I am building a system with a Sony DRU-810A DVD burner and A MSI K8N SLi Platinum motherboard. I have it pretty much complete at this stage but my problem is this: The drive only turns on when the IDE cable isn't connected to anything or when the cable is connected to the motherboard but not the drive.

When I connect the cable to the motherboard (or to the drive from the motherboard), nothing happens. I've tried a few different cables and I get the same problem. It's pretty damn annoying because it's fairly hard to install Windows without a CD drive.

Any ideas?

do you have the drive set as master using the jumper in the back?
does the mobo detect the drive?
