Connecting Cables. Toshiba 1202kit | Manualzz

1. Remove computer cover and faceplate if required (refer to your computer system’s manual for removal information).

2. If the DVD-RAM is replacing a CD-ROM, disconnect all connectors and remove the CD-ROM presently installed in your system.

3. Your Toshiba DVD-RAM can be placed in any free half-height drive slot at the front of your computer. (It can be mounted horizontally or vertically.)

4. Carefully start sliding the DVD-RAM into the opening with the disc tray facing the front of the computer. Before you push the drive all the way in you will need to connect the IDE BUS cable, audio cable and the power cable to the back of the drive.

CONNECTING CABLES

Cable Locations on Rear of DVD-RAM

IDE BUS (Data) Cable - Most computer system have a primary and secondary

IDE BUS cable already installed (an IDE BUS cable is include with your kit if your system does not have a secondary IDE BUS cable).

If you are replacing a CD-ROM: connect the DVD-RAM drive using the BUS cable that the CD-ROM was connected to. Insure that the jumper setting of the

DVD-RAM is the same as the CD-ROM drive you are replacing.

If the DVD-RAM is not replacing a CD-ROM and/or is in addition to a CD-ROM: locate the secondary IDE BUS cable in your system. If your system does not have a secondary IDE BUS cable installed, you will need to install the IDE BUS cable that was included with your kit.

Installing secondary IDE BUS cable: locate the secondary IDE BUS connector on your system’s motherboard (refer to your system’s documentation for location). Connect one end of the IDE BUS cable to motherboard, assuring that it is keyed properly and that cable’s colored edge is aligned with Pin 1.

Connect secondary IDE BUS cable to DVD-RAM drive, assuring that pin 1 of the

3

cable (side with red stripe) is connected to pin 1 on the drive.

• If the DVD-RAM is the only drive connected on the secondary IDE BUS

cable: connect drive to the last set of pins on IDE BUS cable.

• If there is a device (i.e. CD-ROM) connected to the secondary IDE BUS

cable: connect DVD-RAM to the open middle connector . The DVD-RAM drive should then be jumpered to SL (slave) position.

If the DVD-RAM is to be the slave on the Primary BUS: connect the DVD-RAM to the open connector on the primary IDE BUS cable. The DVD-RAM drive should be jumpered to the SL (slave) position. Note: the primary IDE BUS cable, in most cases, will be connected to your hard drive. The hard drive will be the Master on the primary BUS.

Power Cable - Inside your computer system, locate an unused power supply cable.

Connect the power cable to the power socket at the back of the DVD-RAM. One side of the plug has chamfered edges, so the power connector fits only one way so be sure to insert the DC power plug in the correct direction. Push plug completely into the socket making sure the plug fits correctly.

Audio Cable - Connecting your DVD-RAM to your sound card allows you to play audio CDs on your computer (speakers or headphones are also needed).

If the DVD-RAM is in addition to a CD-ROM: If you choose to have both a CD-

ROM and DVD-RAM installed in your system, in most circumstances, only one audio cable can be used (there are some sound cards that will allow you to have two audio connections). You must decide which device you would like to hear audio from and connect the audio cable from the sound card to the CD-ROM or

DVD-RAM (DVD audio is transmitted through the data cable, not the audio cable).

If the DVD-RAM is to be the only CD-ROM device in your system:

• If replacing a CD-ROM that had an audio cable connection: connect DVD-

RAM drive to the audio cable that the CD-ROM was connected. Cable connects to the analog audio connector at the left rear of the DVD-RAM (see

Cable Location photo on page 3 for location).

• If you do not have an audio cable presently in your system: connect the DVD-

RAM using the audio cable that was included with this kit. Connect one end to your sound card and the other end to the analog audio connector at the left rear of the DVD-RAM (see Cable Location photo on page 3 for location).

Refer to the instructions which came with your sound card for details on any sound-driver software required.
