Answers :

Hi,
\015\012FDD Floppy-Disk Drive.
\015\012It would be advisable to go to the motherboard Manufacturers site. And download the setup or user manual for this Board.
\015\012The White or black plastic jumper blocks i,ve refered to, are on the back of the Actual CD/DVD Rom Drive. Located at 1 end. this should be set to Master or Slave. diagram of settings usually printed on top of the drive. I dont know whether you have an IDE Drive ( 40-80 strand ) wire connecter.
\015\012Or sata drive connectors. 1 single red cable from motherboard to drive.
\015\012please bear in mind, this site is designated to solve technical solutions.
\015\012i,ll help all i can, but if your not technical minded, perhaps this is a job for someone more competant than yourself. no disrepect intended.
