8X Slimline DVD-ROM Drive: User’s Guide
Installing the drive in slimline IBM systems
You can extend the capabilities of your computer by adding memory, drives, or
adapters. When adding an option, use these instructions along with the
instructions that come with the computer.
Power and signal cables for internal drives
Your computer uses cables to connect integrated drive electronics (IDE) drives
to the power supply and to the system board. The following cables are
provided:
v Four-wire power cables connect most drives to the power supply. At the end
of these cables are plastic connectors that attach to different drives; these
connectors vary in size. Also, certain power cables attach to the system
board.
v Flat signal cables, also called ribbon cables, connect IDE and diskette drives to
the system board. There are two sizes of ribbon signal cables that come with
your computer:
– The wider signal cable has two or three connectors.
- If the cable has three connectors, one of these connectors is attached to
the drive, one is a spare, and the third attaches to the primary or
secondary IDE connector on the system board.
- If the cable has two connectors, one of these connectors is attached to
the hard disk drive, and the other attaches to the primary or secondary
IDE connector on the system board.
Notes:
1. If you want to add another device, and your computer does not
come with a CD-ROM preinstalled, you will need a second signal
cable with three connectors. You will meed an 80-conductor ATA 66
signal cable if you are replacing the existing signal cable or adding
a second hard disk. ATA 66 signal cables are color-coded. The blue
connector attaches to the system board; the black connector attaches
to the master device, and the gray middle connector attaches to the
slave device.
If your computer comes with a CD-ROM drive, it will have an ATA
66 signal cable. However, if you are installing a hard disk drive,
you must change the switch setting on the CD-ROM drive to
secondary and change the connector used for the CD-ROM drive to
the gray middle connector.
2. If you are installing a slimline CD-ROM drive in the small form
factor desktop model, the IDE cable requires a special connector to

attach to the slimline CD-ROM drive. This connector can be
attached only to an optional slimline CD-ROM drive.
v The narrower signal cable has two connectors for attaching the
diskette drive to the diskette-drive connector on the system
board.

Appendix C. Customizing the device-driver
configuration settings
Changing the Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0,
Windows 2000, and Windows Me device drivers
Windows 95, Windows 98, and Window Me have two device-driver
configuration parameters: Auto Insert Notify and DMA.
The Auto Insert Notify parameter enables the computer to start audio CD
software as soon as a CD is inserted into the Slimline drive.
The DMA parameter improves computer performance by having the computer
DMA controller handle moving data from the CD to memory, freeing the
computer microprocessor to perform more important tasks. For example,
activating DMA might make movies and games run more smoothly because
the microprocessor will be allocating more processing time to video.
Changing the Auto Insert Notify and DMA parameters for
Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me
To change these parameter settings from the Windows 95, Windows 98, or
Windows Me desktop:
1. Click Start --> Settings --> Control Panel.
2. Double-click System.
3. Select Device Manager.
4. Double-click CD-ROM.
5. Click Properties.
6. Select Settings.
7. Click Auto Insert Notification or DMA.
8. Click OK.
Changing the Windows 2000 DMA parameter setting
To change the DMA parameter setting for Windows 2000, do the following:
1. Select Start-->Settings-->Control Panel.
2. Double-click System.
3. Click the Hardware tab.
4. Click Device Manager.
5. Click the IDE ATA/ATAPI controller to open up the tree.
6. Double-click the device that corresponds to your CD-ROM port. It is
