What kind of CD-Rom is it, IDE, SATA, SCSI, model and manufacturer?

On an IDE drive, these informations often can be found at the rear side of the CD-Rom or on top of the drive.

You have to read a lot, use the given tools like google, to find descriptions on problems like this.
A good starting point is, to read the manuals of the e.g. mainboards, network cards, graphics cards, printers a.s.o., you may have trouble with. Most of the manuals can be downloaded at the manufacturers homepage.
And use google to search for solutions.

If nothing of the above helps, post you problem here.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

I have removed you Email address for your own good. Posting it on a public forum is an open invitation to spammers, besides I don't give my Email address to total strangers for the same reason.

You have a lot of reading to do is you want to be the best computer technician. Setting the jumper on a CD ROM is something that most people could work out for themselves. It is usually the middle set of pins. Every optical drive I have ever seen say CS, SL, MA. That is Cable Select, Slave and Master.

If you don't know how to set an optical device to Master, Slave, or Cable_Select, you have a long way to go to become "... the best computer tech".

If you can't get at the drive jumpers, remove the drive from the computer.

Set the jumper to M, S, or CS. Note that if there is another devise on the same EIDE cable, it must be set as CS if the optical drive is set as CS. Otherwise, set it to the opposite of the optical drive. (M or S.)

It's a good day when you learn something
