Hi thanks for the prompt reply . Confirmed, black and yellow red wire is connected. The controller worked and boot the hard drive , but do not appear in the system unit and not read cd cds. Disconnect scsi controller and connect the CD drive , but stopped reading cds. Stay on request cd screen. The cd is inserted by turning a few times and stops. Cleaned lens without any results . CDTV worked perfect till then was connected to scsi controller stopped working even removing the controller. Greetings .:(

you are sure the power is connected behind the cd player?

¿estás seguro de que la alimentación está conectado detrás del reproductor de cd?

Hi thanks for writing in Spanish :)If 'm sure even checked the intentions of the connector simla source turned out damaged but are fine.I can think of nothing more to do is disarm only one to one and check connectors and intentions thereof and reassemble .regardsThe Spanish are well understood thanks .
