Basically, I hooked up a new Western Digital EIDE 160 gig hard drive(WD Caviar SE - 7200 RPM, if that matters at all)
I put the disk into the CD drive that includes software to help partition the hard drive and such, and it works fine. I restart the computer, and when it turns on, the hard drive is working fine and dandy and all that good stuff. But a little while later, I put the cd in to install a couple more pieces of software, and it gives me the error messege: "Please insert disk in drive D:"
I've tried CD roms, music CD's, and stuff like that. Nothing works. I did at one point knock the cable off of the back of the CD drive that goes to the CD in plug on the motherboard (On my bytespeed, it's right behind the built in audio port. Microphones, speakers, etc.) so I plug that in, and it still didn't work. I've tried pretty much every logical mixture of jumper shunt positioning and such, but no luck. When I go into the disk manager, it shows how much space on the hard drives, says they're healthy, etc, etc, but all it shows for the CD drive is :
CD rom (D: )
I've tried re-installing the drivers for it, and that didn't work.
If it matters, here's the IDE cable layout:
Master(original) hard drive-->slave(new) hard drive--> primary IDE port on motherboard (black)
CD drive--->secondary IDE port on motherboard (white)
And... after working on it for six hours, that's pretty much all the info I can remember.
