Well every one,
here is the update on my CDrw problems.
After waiting ages for "gb.buy" to refund my money for the liteon24102b drive and bought the "plextor 2410TA CDrw".
I have just spent the past 4 hours trying to get this bugger to work.
I have experienced exactly the same problem as with the liteon drive.
ie/ connect drive to ide2 as master (jumper as master), power on pc, nothing what so ever, no beep, no bios, no post, just a black screen.
I thought i would remove everything from my pc to see it there was a lack of power to the drive.
So i just had the Mobo+plextor, powered on and guess what ? **** all.
I am now totally stressed out !
what is so different about these new 24x drives that certain mobos dont like ?
very very very pissed off !
