CD Burner in addition to my CD-ROM

  1. A friend of mine gave me a CD burner to have. I went ahead and put it into my machine but cannot get it to work. When I connect it (daisy-chain it to the CD-ROM) the CD-ROM will not work either, which tells me I'm missing a step.

    I have never done this before and like to see if someone could walk me through it. Also, with XP, would it recognize the driver needed for this device and automatically install it? I don't have a copy of the driver, so if it doesn;t, I may have another problem. Let me know what info you would need from me. Thanks in advance!

  2. What's the "jumper"?
  3. Thanks for the advice. I'll let you know how I make out.
