Hi. I’m Allen and welcome to Expert Village.
Today I’m going to show you how to build your very own personal computer; our DVD drive.
So our DVD drive is right here. I’m going to go ahead and put it into the open slot,
slides right in. Up to you wherever you want it to go also up to I guess however long the
cable is. So same idea just going to go ahead and put this in real quick. Now we’re going
to do the same idea, you can either do the one, two or this one actually has eight connectors
on it which is kind of interesting. So if you wanted to do that you can have four on
both sides. I definitely only do one two like cross, cross them and on the other side on
the bottom back and then on the and the top front where, yeah top front and that will
really keep it in place. So I can go ahead just do that real quick and then we are going
to connect them. So, let me just put this in place real quick here. All right so that
sides in now too. We got this side, so it’s nice and tight not going anywhere. Now as
I said before I’m going to put it on the two different ID slots so just give you a basic
idea. Make sure this is on either master or slave depending on what other drives you have
in there that will allow it to work together with the other drive or no drive in there.
So if you have nothing else and you put it on slave it’s not going to hurt anything,
but just remember if you’re going to have two drives on the same channel, that ones
got to be master and ones got to be slave. Again this one has two connectors on it. Some
of them that come with the drives only have one connector. Go ahead plug it into the board
here. See getting a little bit tighter with all the cables here. Put it in, going to bring
it up. One goes in the one way there. It’s in the spot. And again the red to the red,
right in. So now we’ve got those drives connected that’s pretty much ready to go.
