I'm working on a friend's G3 who is having trouble with the DVD drive. The drive does not show up anywhere that I can see within the system. I just installed a brand new drive but it still does not show up anywhere. I've checked the cable connections and everything seems fine there. System Profiler shows the zip drive and hard drive listed under "Bus", but no optical drive.

Suggestions, please?
QUOTE Thanks

Sorry I'm a total idiot. I forgot to set the jumper on the drive. Set it to master and all is well :-\
