These devices are not detected in the BIOS & actually do not work (cannot open cd writer tray). But when i remove the IDE cables from these devices leaving only the power cable connected then they work. Any solutions?
The error message "reboot and select proper boot device" occurs because the hardware does not recognises proper boot files. There may be a problem with one of your IDE( CD rom or Harddisk). Try a new IDE cable for both CD rom and Harddisk. If the problem persist try a new cd rom with your pc. Or better try a new Harddisk and Cd rom with your PC.
