I built a computer about 3 years ago and seldom needed the dvd drive to work but when I did it was a pain to get it running.
I have a SATA HDD and a SATA dvd drive which seemed to me to be part of the problem. The dvd drive had jumper pins on the back and the only way I could get it working was to turn off the computer and change the jumper setting.
I don't fully understand jumper settings but I do know that this, more or less, worked. The issue is now I'm building a computer for my sister and this build also has a SATA dvd drive but i don't want the same thing to happen.
Also, how do jumper settings work in case I need to set that for the master and slave hard drives in addition to the dvd drive?
