dumb ??installing new dvd drive

Some reason I can't add another opticle drive. My setup is 2 ata drives. I have 1 ide cable and a CD burner attached to it as a master which is the primary ide. I attach my new dvd drive to it as master & my cd as slave & vice versa, I even tried putting them on there own ide cable and setting both to master. Bios sees them both,but when xp starts where you see the blue indicators
scrolling left to right, it just sits right there. It never gets to my desktop. Not sure if I need to setup my bios diff or XP is jacked up. not sure. FYI its's a Sony DVD burner from Frys.
