What should you do if your computer does not detect two optical drives simultaneously when the master slave jumper settings are ok?

Check the jumpers on the optical drives, play around with those. Check for compatibility with your OS, check the device manager, check for possible drivers needed although unlikely.

An optical mouse is a computer mouse which uses an optical sensor as opposed to mechanical means to detect user input. Optical mouses are generally more reliable, have greater sensitivity, and can work on a wider variety of surfaces than traditional mechanical mouses.

A "ball mouse" or mechanical mouse is a computer mouse which detects user inputs using a system of servos detecting the movements of a ball (inside the mouse) which rolls on the desk surface. The most common alternative, the "optical mouse" uses optical sensors to detect user inputs. The optical mouse is widely considered to be superior in all important respects, and is therefore becoming much more common then their mechanical cousins.

You will need a cable that runs from the PC to the LCD projector. They usually come with the projector. If you turn on the computer, then turn on the projector, then connect the cable, it should automatically detect and appear on the LCD projector. Otherwise, you will have to configure some computer settings to output to the LCD display.

An optical mouse is a mouse which uses an optical sensor to detect movement, as opposed to a mechanical mouse which does this mechanically. A wireless mouse is a mouse which uses wireless technology in order to avoid having to be tethered to the computer by a wire. This is usually done through RF (radio-frequency) or bluetooth (a specific standardized type of RF) technology, but may also use IR (infra-red) technology. It is possible (and quite common) for a mouse to be both wireless and optical.
