Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop ?

I have brought a new computer that dosnt have a cd rom. I have tried putting in two different cd-roms but they wont show up on my computer. i have tried downloading drivers to help but it still wont work.

Answers :

Are you configuring the jumpers on the cd-rom drives correctly. The drive should be set to th "cable select" setting on the jumper at the back of the drive. Your computer will not recognize the drive if you do not do this.
Hello !

Your CD-ROM should have at least two cables connected to it: a power cable and IDE cable that should also be connected to your \015\012motherboard. \015\012Disconnect and reconnect the cables and be certain that they are snug.

Some computers will also have a small third cable used to interface \015\012the CD-ROM with the sound card. If the audio for your CD audio CDs is not \015\012working properly verify that this cable is not disconnected from the back of the \015\012CD-ROM.

Hope this helps.
