Installing the drive

Follow these steps to install the DVD-ROM drive:

Step 1. Opening the computer

1.

Turn off the computer and all attached devices.

2.

Unplug all power cords from the computer and all attached devices.

3.

Remove the cover from the computer. Refer to your computer documentation for instructions on removing the computer cover.

Step 2. Unpacking the drive

1.

Before opening the antistatic bag that the drive is packed in, touch the bag to an unpainted metal surface for at least two seconds. This drains the static electricity from the package and your body.

2.

Remove the drive from the bag.

If you must put the drive down, place the antistatic bag on a flat, padded surface, such as a magazine, and place the drive on the antistatic bag.

Step 3. Setting the configuration jumpers

You can configure your drive as master

«1¬

, slave

«2¬

, or cable-select

«3¬

, as shown.

«4¬ and

«5¬ are reserved.

v v v

Use the following guidelines to determine the correct configuration for your

DVD-ROM drive.

Configure the DVD-ROM drive as a master if it will be the only device that is connected to an IDE cable. This is the preset configuration.

Configure the DVD-ROM drive as a slave if it will be the second device on an IDE cable. Be sure to configure the other device as a master. In some cases, a hard disk drive might require a ″ master with slave present ″ jumper setting when another device on the same cable is configured as a slave. For more information on setting configuration jumpers on other devices, refer to the documentation that comes with your computer device.

Some non-IBM computers use special ATA cables with two wires reversed in the device connectors so that the drives can be configured by the cable instead of by jumper position. Use the cable-select position only for computers that are equipped with these special cables. See the documentation that comes with your computer to determine if your ATA adapter requires that you place the jumpers in the cable-select position.

If you place the jumpers in the cable-select position, the IDE cable automatically assigns the master and slave settings based on the position of the drive on the cable. You must use the cable-select setting for this cabling system whether the DVD-ROM drive is the only device or the second device connected to the cable. The drive closest to the IDE controller is automatically the master drive. Any other devices on the IDE cable must also be set to cable-select.

Step 4. Mounting the drive in the bay

Attention: Be sure to use the M3 x 5-mm mounting screws in the option package when you are driving screws directly into the drive. Using screws that are too long might damage the drive.

You can mount the DVD-ROM drive horizontally or vertically in the computer.

If you mount the drive vertically, you must secure any discs that you place into the drive before the drive tray is closed, or the DVD-ROM drive will not be able to read the disc properly.

1.

Slide the drive into the bay. Your computer might have specific required procedures for installing storage devices. For more information on storage devices, refer to the documentation that comes with your computer.

2.

Align the drive-bay screw holes with the threaded holes in the drive housing or mounting bracket.

3.

Thread the screws in loosely to check their position. Two screws are usually used on each side. Verify that the alignment is correct; then tighten the screws to secure the drive. Do not overtighten.

Step 5. Attaching the cables to the drive

The following diagram shows where to connect the cables to the drive.

1-6

16X Max DVD-ROM Drive: User’s Guide

The following is an illustration of the internal audio cable that comes with your option package.

1.

Connect the single-connector end of the included internal audio cable

«1¬ to the audio-out connector on the DVD-ROM drive.

2.

Attach a 40-pin IDE-cable connector

«2¬ to the IDE connector on the drive.

Align the cable so that the color-coded edge is closest to the power cable connector

«3¬

. Use the IDE cable that is provided with this option if there is no cable attached to the IDE port. The IDE cable can have up to three connectors. For the best signal quality when you are connecting only one device to the IDE cable, connect one end of the cable to the IDE port, and connect the other end of the cable to the device. Do not use the middle connector. Use the IDE cable that is provided with this option if there is no cable attached to the computer IDE port, or if there is only one device connector on the computer IDE cable.

If you are connecting two devices to the IDE cable, connect one end of the cable to the IDE port, and connect the master and slave devices to the remaining connectors on the other end. Many computers have two cables for attaching up to four ATA devices. For best performance, attach fast devices (hard disk drives) to the cable that is connected to the primary IDE port, and connect the DVD-ROM drive or other slower devices (CD-ROM drives, tape drives, removable media) to the cable that is connected to the secondary IDE port.

3.

Attach a four-pin power cable

«3¬ to the power connector on the DVD-ROM drive.

Be sure that the cables will not be pinched or crowded by the computer cover and that all other cable and power connections are secure.

Step 6. Completing the hardware installation

1.

Be sure that the DVD-ROM drive is securely mounted and that the connectors are firmly attached.

2.

Be sure that the cables do not interfere with the computer cover, and that they do not block the power-supply fan blades or airflow paths.

3.

Reinstall the computer cover.

4.

Reconnect all external devices.

5.

Plug all power cords into the wall outlets.
