Lil help for a un-enlightend? (aka newb)

i’ve got a dvd/writer combo drive and it refuses to work in one of my laptops(HP), so far i’ve worked it out as a ide identification problem, the laptop wants a secondary master, it’s a primary slave, any help on changeing it? it’s model no is UJDA330 DL-Z
any more specifics, just e-mail/msg me

Thanks if you can gimme a hand

It might be possible to short pin 47 or something to set it to a specific IDE location. I’ve never had any reason to look into the details of this, but I think you will find info if you search.
