CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

Q: CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

I have an old P3 system that I let my son use for internet browsing, email, etc. It has been rock solid for 6+ years until lately and I think the issue of not booting properly is that the master CD-ROM gave up the ghost. And so I took that out hoping that is all it will take.

Here is my question (and I feel so much like a noob; I did try to google but I got nothing): Where do I place the tab to take it from slave to single configuration? As slave the tab was placed on the far left in the verticle position. Am I correct in that to make it singular I need to place it horizontally on the bottom two prongs center-right?

I hope I am making myself clear. This is an old system and it has been years since setting it up and I don't have my manuals anywhere. I couldn't even access Buslink's website.

Thanks for your help.

Preferred Solution: CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

The jumper will fit on the pins, based on what is imprinted or embossed on the drive. It is usually very difficult to see... but if you use a flashlight or other device you can place at different angles, you can see how the jumper choices are stamped into the metal. Most often the center two are Slave, the right is Master, and the left is Cable Select.
I suggest you jumper it as master.
If it is a known brand, you can find a drawing on the website of the optical drive manufacturer.

I recently upgraded drives. I had a 15.3Gig c:\ (master) and a 1.2Gig d:\ (slave). I upgraded the slave (which I only use to store my junk) to a 6.0Gig. Now when running a Norton system check it gives me this message:

Hard Drive Integrity Scan
! Drive D:\ may not be configured correctly. Hard Drive Integrity Scan cannot run on this drive. Please consult the ReadMe.TXT file for more information on this problem. OK

I can't find that ReadMe.TXT, or rather the right one. Can anyone tell me just where to go to configure the drive correctly, or is it not so simple? I know my way around my machine, but I'm no expert.

I am running Windows XP Pro. In the sytem I have:

Primary: Maxtor HDD (master) - no slave

Secondary: Aopen CD-RW (master) - Asus CD player (slave)

In the next couple of days I will be aquiring an NEC 2510a DVD burner/player.

I would appreciate instructions on the correct configuration on setting-up all of these drives. Meaning which drives should be conected on cables together and whether the drive should be designated as master or slave.

The following is how I assume they should be connected:

Primary: Maxtor HDD (Master) - Asus CD player (Slave)

Secondary: NEC DVD Burner (Master) - Aopen CD-RW (Slave)
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Ok here is my issue. I will appreciate any help I can get. If this topic has been done before I apologize and ask that you all bear with me.

I owned a laptop. Things went sour eventually and I ended up removing my hard drive from the laptop. I got a new laptop and wanted some extra storage space. Flash drives just weren't working for me as they didn't provide enough gigs for what I wanted to store. I ended up buying an external hard drive kit (Rocket Fish) and put my old hard drive inside of it so that it would function as a USB drive. Things worked out swell for a while until I wanted to clear up the old data from my previous computer. When I tried to delete the old folders with my desktop info and in the folder labeled "Windows" (for example) and it said that I didn't have permission. I got frustrated when I realized that I now had seriously limited storage capacity. Aside form that my "new external hard drive" needed a power source or it would go to sleep. I ended up just buying a regular external (Iomega 500gb) and have it now. It doesn't have an external power source but seems to just turn off randomly or go to sleep which worries me. I have a lot of info on it. (Thats another issue though) I am now resorting back to my Rocket Fish but can't just get the darn thing to be read as a USB and have permission to do whatever I want to on it. Instead I don't have permission to delete any of my old data. I looked up master sla... Read more

SATA drives don't have a master/slave relationship. So you won't need to mess with jumpers.

i understand the new (& also weird) 'ms office' protocol...whereby, when one attempts to open an office program...a 'Microsoft Installer' progress window pops up & runs BEFORE the app opens. it's annoying, but tolerable 'cause at least it's fast (know this because i installed 'publisher' last year).

but I just purchased 'microsoft office home & business 2010'...so i could go back to outlook (& get rid of windows live mail)...& in outlook...the Microsoft Installer window runs longer than usual...& then...seemingly w/ every e-mail account that gets opened for incoming mail...another progress window pops up called 'Microsoft Single Image'...& that keeps coming up & up; & just takes forever.

ALSO: in ms word...a 'program configuration' window pops up & runs...& that one REALLY takes a long time

i really need to get rid of this nonsense, or i'm going back to live mail...will have no choice.

anyone have any ideas...???

How can I configure two CD drives and two hard drives in ordre to record from one cd (4x) to the other CDrw. cheers.

A:CD configuration

hey cuzo.
One thing you can do is set one hd to be master and one CD as slave on first IDE chain (usually IDE 0 )
Set second hd to be master and CDRW as slave on second IDE chain ( IDE 1)
or you can set cd's to be master and HD slave. also make sure to check your boot order after you do your setup...

Right now I have two hard drives, a DVD-rom drive, and a CD-RW drive. The two hard drives are on one IDE and the two CD-roms on the other (one master, the other slave). I have read a few posts in which people have said it is better to have a hard drive and CD-rom on an IDE and so on. I am wondering if that is what I should do and would my current configuration be causing the slow transfers I am getting when I copy things between drives? Thank you.

Hi, Just after a bit of advice...

I have an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard with 4 dimm slots and 2 matching pairs of 512MB doublesided PC3200 DDR ram to fill them with...

If I install all 4, I can have 2GB of memory, running in dual channel mode - but, due to restrictions of the motherboard/processor/nvidia chipset (depending on where you read), the 400MHz RAM speed gets adjusted down to 333MHz...

My alternatives are to install just 2, meaning I'd have 1GB 400MHz memory running in dual channel mode, or 1.5GB 400MHz memory running in single channel mode.

I'm sure there will be limited difference between the options, but if anyone has any ideas on what my best bet would be, I'd be grateful (I currently have all 2GB installed).

For the record, I'm using the computer for general word processing/Internet and gaming, but also for home recording, if that has any bearing.

Thanks, Jake

P.S. I searched the forums on this topic and found someone with a similar dilemma, but in that case the choice was between 4GB at 333MHz and 2GB at 400MHz, which I imagine has less impact on the overall performance of the PC. Anyway, hope you don't mind me asking again

A:Best RAM configuration?

So you're saying you have 400 mhz PC3200 installed with 4 Chips totaling 2GB running at 333 Mhz? Right? Does your BIOS have an advanced area where you can tweak it? If so you might have to adjust some voltage to the RAM and set it to run at 400 Mhz

My computer is working fine except for when I attempt to install World of Warcraft, in any way shape or form. I've downloaded the install files, copied from my discs, tried installing normally, tried in safe mode, on different accounts, defragged my harddrive multiple times, and prayed incessantly to the gods. No go. So I'm thinking it's memory.

My computer was built by IBuyPower, a company that I'll never buy another laptop from again, and I question their competancy in building a machine. When I got the system my dvd-r had bad drivers, and within a month of use the power supply socket broke from standard use. Nothing but bad experiences with those poeple.

thats too hot, AMD's webite states that an Athlon64 has a max temp of 70ºC, which obviously means that your system is overheating, which suprises me that you haven't had more problems. Are your fans working?? are they loaded with dust??

Heat is an electronic component's worst enemy, especially in a laptop, where an overheated CPU can cause other nearby components (including RAM) to overheat as well.

You need to do port forwarding on your router. Set it up to forward requests from the 65.206.x.x address to your internal 192.168.1.x address with the correct port or ports for the game. The port number should be in the game documentation.

The former appears to be a fairly large file with a lot of options, but almost every line is preceded with a #, with I assume means that it is commented out. Scrolling through the "options", I didn't find anything so as I could set contrast, brightness, hue, saturation or gamma.

The latter file appears to be a more active file, but is much, much more brief, and I don't see anything that I need there either.

Does anyone really understand how these could be used to accomplish what I want?

A:VLC Configuration

It happens with me as well. Everytime I reopen VLC to play any media, it will never retain any settings. I guess that's how its designed to work.

Perhaps you are confused have you seen or Heard of Windows Smart Screen aka OS Security Filter. Malwarebytes Anti Exploit is realtime protection while Anti-Malware is scanner and or protection. Doing backups is recommended also add another On Demand Scanner like Zemana Anti-Malware to your config.

Hey all, quick question....I hope. I'm online trying to help a friend resolve an ip conflict between his PC and laptop. Every time one or the other is started, it kicks the other machine off the net etc. Now, I've tried getting him to set an ip address on the laptop, rather than using the automatic configuration....however, even tho it is telling it to use, when he does ipconfig from CMD, it shows usual. It WONT use .1.10!

This is XP HOME (bleh), on a DELL (BLEH) laptop and PC. Anyone know why it wont use that address? He has a Netgear router connected to his modem....PC is hardwired, Lappy is wireless.

I have been very happy with XP (mostly desktops) and have completely avoided Vista for our company. I have no experience with Windows 7. I am ready to upgrade our sales personnel to laptops and am wondering if I will be happy with the speed of the following setup:

Intel Core 2 Duo 1.66 GHz
2 GB RAM (considering upgrade to 4GB)
Windows 7 Pro

The computers are used mainly for email, a little bit of internet, printing, office documents, etc.. They will be taking these computers to accounts so startup speed is a little bit of a factor.

Will this hardware configuration perform adequately or will it bog down with Windows 7.


A:Will 7 run well on this configuration?

Also, will these be good for a few years for will I need to upgrade again soon...

Hi all
I am planning for a new pc..a high performance once..really confused in selecting a processor..which one will be best? Intel P4 Core 2 Duo 2.2 Ghz or a 3.4 GHz Dual Core(with a 4 GB RAM and motherboard Intel 945)? Pls advice

A:Regarding Configuration

If you plan on doing any virtualization, get a processor (Intel or AMD) that supports the Intel or AMD virtualization technology (i.e. with the instruction support) x86 virtualization.

I do like the 4GB RAM! Stay with it regardless of processor you decide to get.

Intel 945 processor may not support virtualization though - check the article in the above link.

I just installed ssd in my computer and it doesn't show up in the explorer - I'm assuming that's because it isn't formatted yet. So I went into the computer management screen and the ssd is there as "not initialized". A dialog came up saying the ssd disk must be intialized before the logical disk manager can access it - there were 2 choices for intializing: MBR or GPT. I am not sure which one I should go for.
Or should I leave it to windows 7 to format it when I install win7 on the ssd?

A:ssd configuration

Post a screen shot of your Disk Management.

I'd disconnect all other drives before trying to install Windows to an SSD---or to any drive for that matter.

Hello folks, i have the folowwing PC:
AMD 64 3800 single core
4gb DDR2 800
HD 160gb
Video 256mb

Should i install 32 or 64 version?

A:My Configuration: 32 or 64?

I hate single cores, but I'd suggest trying out 64-bit and seeing how it feels, if you don't like it just go back to 32-bit. Honestly even with a 64-bit CPU, its a single core which means it will fill up easier.
