New cd drive
Ok about a month ago I attempted to put in a new cd drive, but now both of them don't read on my computer now(since I put the new one in), they open if I press the eject button on them, so I must have connected them to the power supply right, I have also conntected the big wires that go into the motherboard.
Should I look at the BIOS? because there maybe a conflict between them about which one being master/slave or whatever(I think thats only on HDD's though :S)
Anyone want me to post a pic of inside my computer to see if I have wired them wrong? I just can't go on without putting cd's in for longer..

I assume that you've connected both of the drives with the same ide cable.
You've probably set jumpers wrong. You should set one as a master and one as a slave. The codes should be somewhere on the drive on a sticker, or maybe a manual. Also remember, that the ide cable has master and slave as well. I don't remember which one is which though. Probably the latter plug is master, if I'm correct.
