My laptop has a primary and secondary master IDE connection. The primary is reserved for the hard drive and the secondary for cd/dvd drives.
I recently ordered a ND-6750A drive because all the reviews I’ve read have stated that it’s set to master from factory. Well, I put it in my laptop and for some reason it only shows up as Secondary Slave. The BIOS doesn’t have options for Slave settings so there’s nothing I can do about it in the BIOS.
The reverse ATA firmware on Liggy’s site is meant to take the default Master setting and make it slave, so I can’t use that either (already tried out of desperation).
Since there’s no firmware to go from slave to master, I’m stumped.
Any ideas outside of getting a replacement and hoping for a Master drive?
I really need to set this to Master as I can only read discs and not burn since with it’s current config all I get are power calibration errors. Thanks!
