I set the CDR to Master and connected it to the same IDE Cable as my CDRom Drive, which I know set to slave.
The CDR Drivers install properly, but my Computer will only recognize the CDR Drive and won't recognize the Cdrom drive.
The Cdrom is also a Mitsumi (Quad Speed).
If I switch the Cdrom to master and the CDR to slave only the Cdrom drive is recognized.
This occurs whether or not the dos drivers for the CDROM drive are remarked out of config.sys or not.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can keep my CDROM and my CDR Drives?
(I also have an additional hard drive as a slave drive on the Primary IDE, so switching the CDR to the Primary controller is not an option, unless someone knows of a way I can switch the HD to the Secondary IDE controler without reformatting/partitioning/configuring).

Try connecting both on the same cable and both set to primary, this work most times.

no problems, except, if you use directcd move the sound cable to the cdrw. or swap cdrom and cdrw positions. try an audio cd first to see why.
in an ide setup, you need to keep the cdrom and cdrw on separate channels.
