Toshiba BIOS is 1. I don’t really want to waste time trying to flash or solder my DVD-rom if it’s an issue with my laptop. Original drive, nothing changed, just suddenly started happening.

I need the firmware so that I can change option from master to slave. What brand does get the least problems? Posted on Jan 20, After deciding that my drive was probably cable select – unfortunately the files don’t say which is for which!

I have a Toshiba Tecra I followed that by folding a piece of tin foil about 1″ square into a piece small enough to span the distance of the two pins, but not too great to usurp the other pins.

I slid in the bridge and plugged it into the computer. That was with a Toshiba Satellite A40 laptop that I’d been asked to fix for a neighbour.

Can someone help optorite or lite-on operate them. The problem is that I still can’t go into Windows since it keeps giving me the Error 1 message even when I stick in the old drive.
