    on the back of each drive is a little jumper that is usually black. depending on which set of 2 pins jumpered determines whether it is jumpered master, slave or cable select. on the back of each rom drive is a marking idicating which drive is master, slave or cable select. right now it sounds like you have the both jumpered the same as in master or slave but not both.
