INSTALLATION

Host Interface Connections

Most current mainboard models have two IDE ports (primary and secondary) which can connect two IDE cables. Two IDE cables allow you to connect up to four devices, but it is recommended that you separate IDE ports for your hard drive and your Combo drive. This will ensure that your hard drive’s performance and speed won’t be affected by having the Combo Drive on the same cable.

Jumper Setting

On the rear panel of the Combo Drive, you will find three pairs of jumpers: CS (CSEL), SL (Slave) and MA (Master). Use the jumper cap to set the device to CS, SL or MA mode corresponding to your PC configuration. If you connect only one device on the IDE cable, you can set the jumper as “Master” or “Slave”.

If you connect two devices on the same cable, set different jumper for each device (one as “Master”, and the other one as “Slave”). The same rule applies to the connection of having your hard disk and one other device on the same cable.

5. If you have a sound card that can be connected to this drive, you can also connect the drive (as Audio-Out) and the sound card (as

Audio-in) with a 4-pin audio cable.

If your mainboad is integrated with built-in sound system, plug the

4-pin audio cable into the CD-IN connector on the mainboard as

Audio-in.

6. Re-attach the cover of the computer, and reconnect the power cord and all cables to the computer.

Software Description

Burning Software

The bundled mastering software gives you the complete solution for making audio/data CDs right from your desktop. It allows you to copy files from your computer to a recordable compact disc. In addition, the audio CDs you create can be played in your home or car CD player.

For the CD-RW media, you can write and erase data on the CD as you do with a floppy disk.

DVD Playback Software

The bundled DVD playback software has a newly enhanced MPEG-1 and 2 decoder to provide you with the most rich and powerful image quality. It is based on the proprietary MPEG-2 video decoding engine that supports full resolution 720 x 480 video playback.

You can enjoy the wide range of educational and entertaining CD/DVD titles with sound and visual effect of theater quality.

Installation Under Windows Environment

1. Insert the application CD and the installation program will run automatically.

Or

2. Run:\setup.exe on the application CD.

DVD Region Coding

Region Playback Control Management

All DVD Video Playback systems have “Region Playback Control” management (RPC) which is required by Hollywood movie industry and defined by DVD Forum. This includes DVD-Video players and PC

6

COMBO DRIVE systems with DVD-Video capability. You can only play DVD-Video discs with the same region code as your DVD-Video Playback system.

As for DVD-ROM drives, one kind of the DVD-Video Playback system, there are 2 types:

RPC Phase 1 (as RPC1): RPC1 drives do not have built-in hardware support for region management. DVD-ROM drives of this kind don’t play a part in controlling the playback region. It solely depends on the decoder.

RPC Phase 2 (as RPC2): RPC2 drives maintain the region change count information in hardware, and in general, the region of such drives can be changed up to 5 times by the end users under some software decoder (e.g. PowerDVD).

And referring to the region codes, there are 6 regions worldwide, and normally, there is a region code mark on the package of DVD titles. :

Region 1: Canada, US

Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including

Egypt)

Region 3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong)

Region 4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America,

Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean

Region 5: Eastern Europe, Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia

Region 6: China

About This Combo Drive

This Combo Drive is a RPC2 drive and according to DVD-Forum, PC chip must be designed into DVD-ROM drives to record how many times a user has changed the region code. Once the limit of 5 changes is reached, the drive won't allow you to change the region code any more.

It means the code will be locked and only those DVD titles of the same region code could be played afterwards, so set the code carefully.

TROUBLESHOOTING

COMBO DRIVE

To help you get more familiar with the Combo Drive, the following FAQ lists some common problems you might encounter. Please read it for reference before you request RMA support from your dealer.

Q1. The drive cannot be recognized.

(1) It’s possible the drive hasn’t been connected properly. Please check whether the IDE cable and power connector are tightly connected.

(2) Check if there is jumper conflict. Normally, if 2 drives are connected with one IDE cable, the jumper has to separate one to MASTER & the other to

SLAVE.

(3) If Windows can’t detect this drive, click on the “Add New Hardware” in the

Control Panel. Windows will start detecting.

Q2. Do I need to install driver for this Combo Drive?

No, because Windows 98/Me/2000/XP have IDE driver built in and you don’t have to install another driver.

Q3. The drive can read data and audio discs, but it can’t read DVD discs.

Why?

Because Windows Operating System doesn’t support the playback of DVD discs and you have to install another software to play DVD discs. (e.g.: Power

DVD or Win DVD)

Q4. My external speaker doesn’t have sound when playing music CD.

(1) Please check if the audio cable is connected to the audio connector properly.

(2) Check both rear side of the drive and sound card on M/B (If Audio chipset is on board). If they are well connected, check if the sound card is working.

COMBO DRIVE

Q5. The drive can’t read former session(s) of the CD-R disc which has been written twice or more times.

Before writing CD-R discs with data copy, remember to choose “Import session” so as to read the former sessions.

Q6. There is noise while reading.

If the disc used is eccentric or there are labels stuck on the disc surface, it will cause noise.

Q7. The drive doesn’t have power.

Please check if the power cord is connected securely.

Q8. The tray cannot be ejected.

There are two possible reasons:

(1) Need to be ejected by the application.

Some of the burning or playing application will lock the drive. You have to eject by the application and close it so as to restore the use of panel buttons.

(2) The CD is inserted incorrectly.

Please insert a paper clip or small rod into the emergency hole on the front panel for manual ejection.

Q9. The drive cannot read some general discs.

Please check if the disc has deep scratches, fingerprints, or other contaminants on the surface. Clean the disc if it’s necessary.

Q10. The drive cannot write.

We suggest as follows:

(1) Use the burning software which is provided by original supplier and bundled with this Combo Drive or download the updated file from internet.

14

(2) More capacity of hard disk is needed if using hard disk as temporary buffer.

(3) Place the disc correctly.

(4) The blank disc needs full format first if using packet writing software.

Q11. “Buffer underrun” always occurs while writing discs.

Here are some suggestions:

(1) Close the screen saver & TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident).

(2) Quit other redundant application while burning.

(3) Select good quality and high-speed supported blank discs.

(4) Increase main memory capacity.

(5) Select other burning software.

(6) De-fragment the hard disk.

(7) Keep the source & destination discs clean. (no scratches, fingerprints or contaminants.)

(8) Copy data as image file to hard drive to avoid buffer underrun.

(9) Keep the system clean. Do not install redundant driver or application to reduce system loading as well as confliction.

(10) Enable Buffer Underrun Protection mode if your software supports it.

Q12. Does this drive support over-burning?

Yes, but please use burning software which supports this function.

Q13. What burning software supports this Combo Drive?

Software such as Adaptec EasyCD Creator, Ahead Nero-Burning ROM, NTI

CDMaker…etc.

Q14. Does this drive support CD-Text & SAO (Session At Once) function?

Yes, it does support CD-Text & SAO function and you may edit the title or content into your music CD.
