I purchased a brand new Sony SATA Dvd Burner last night. I connected the SATA power cable and SATA data cable properly to my mobo (D945GNT) but the system is not picking up it.
The BIOS also tells No Optical Drive found/(connected)
What could the reason be?? Is there any fault in my dvd burner or whether the mobo doesn't support SATA optical drives?? I have tried by connecting a couple of different SATA data and power cables but in vain. I have already one SATA WD 80GB and one WD 500GB HDD connected.
All answers are highly appreciated.
Well, the DVD burner was faulty. I just changed it and it is working now.
