Problem with CD drive on ML350 server

pts.

I have just taken delivery of a new HP ML350 server today. When I powered it up the CD drive appeared to be dead. I removed the IDE cable and when I powered up again, the CD had power. I replaced the IDE cable with another new one and tried again - same thing. I then tried the drive in another computer with the IDE cable it was supplied with and it worked fine without any problems. So, where can I go next? Back to the suppliers?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Most definitely, back to where you purchased it. They should be first stop for something brand new.

    hold on a sec...check your jumper, if it is a single drive on a single IDE cable and your jumper is on CS, change it to master and then try it...ran into that the other day, i loaded windows server 2003 on a machine, installed all my software, then all of a sudden the machine didn't see the drive anymore, (jumper was on slave) changed it to master and everything was fine...
