    i boughta dvd burner about 2 months ago, i took out my old dvd player,but i found out i wasnt able to play my cam mimi's anymore..so i took out my CD-R burner and put in my dvd player..now both my dvd player and burner dont even show up in MY COMPUTER.
    I want to try to fix it without tring to dip up my cd's for it

    if both roms are on same cable, change dvd burner to master & dvd rom to slave by using the jumper on backside of drive. do not use cable select!!!
