    Can someone please help me out? This thing is driving me crazy.

    I have a Powermac G4, I believe Sawtooth.

    I just tried to change the DVDROM to a DVDRW Drive.
    Both are IDE/ATAPI.
    Anyways, when I plug it in and start it up, nothing comes up. I just get that orange ring on the monitor power button. I take it, it doesn't recognize the drive.

    I tried putting the original DVD drive back in and I still get the orange ring. This thing is driving me nuts.

    Someone please give me some advice on how to just get my original working again.
