    hi can any one help with a prob.
    my rewriter starts spinning when I click on any programme I wish to use.
    computer wont shut down properly plus numerous other problems.
    I disconnected my rewriter was fine ,connected back up same problem.

    it appears from what you say that you have two masters on the same
    cable---not good news
    assuming you have the following---hard drive (c) /cd drive / re writer drive
    the preferential setup would be(but not the only)
    ide1---hard drive (master)--cd (slave)
    ide 2--rewriter drive (master)

    having said that most new drives(rewriter) do not mind being slaves
    look at the rear or your hard drive and cd player/writer--use the manuals
    and set the jumpers to the correct config as above--
    minimal advice but a good troubleshoot that should resolve your problem
