Laptop drive error firmware?

I have a bad teac dw 224e-a, I purchased a dw 224e-c not knowing it was not compatible. Will the drive work if I flash it with the 224e_a firmware or does anyone know how I can make it work…I have manually set the drive to master and slave but I get an ide #1 error. I can see the settings in the bios (address and irq) but I can not change them. I think the bios is looking for the drive there but the new drive settings are different. Any help will be appreciated…

Thank you!
