Chapter 42. Replacing, Upgrading, or Add... > Installing an Internal SCSI Drive

Installing an Internal SCSI Drive

Installing an internal SCSI CD-ROM/RW drive is almost exactly the same as installing an internal IDE drive. The cable is a bit different, and just like with installing a SCSI hard disk drive, you have to set the SCSI ID on the CD-ROM/RW drive according to the instructions that came with your drive. Remember, too, that the SCSI ID number (0–6) you assign to the drive has to be unique.

All SCSI devices, such as hard disk drives and CD-RW drives, leave the factory with a preset SCSI ID, which in most cases you can leave as is. Just be sure to check that the ID set on the device isn't an ID you are already using on your SCSI chain. Two devices on a SCSI chain with the same ID will not operate.
