Netfinity 5000 and CDRW problem

Discussion in 'IBM' started by Luis Fernando Martins, Jan 17, 2004.

  1. I have a Netfinity 5000 (8859-51Y) that came with a CDROM. Now I need
    to install it a CDRW but I have big problems with that :(
    I bought a normal CDRW IDE drive and installed it as usual, using the
    same configuration as the replaced CDR. When booting, the server doesn't
    detect the drive. If I replace it with its drive, it detects correctly.
    The CDRW drive is working fine because I tried it with other machines
    (not Netfininity) and it works.
    Is there any special feature that I must be aware to buy a CDRW drive
    for the server?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
