I recently installed a dvd-rom and have been noticing a lot of heat.
My discs come out hot after being in the drive for only a couple of secs.
can this ruin the data stored on the discs?
how bad is this for my pc?
I never had this prob w/ my cd-rom I took out.
I have the rom jumpered to cabel, which is what was said to do in HP pavilion upgrade doc.
I dont know why this is but in my Bios i have a primary master=maxtor(c)
no secondary master
primary slave = mitsumi writer(f)
secondary slave = dvd rom(e)
does this seem right?
and could this ,in your opinions, be contributating to the heat.
I also have another oddity, when i go into my computer it says there is a (D- drive) but i only have 2 slots. f for the writer an e for the rom, I never paid it too much mind cause everytyhig seemed to work right, till I put in the Aopen dvd-rom an it started feeling a little too warm?
any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks.
