Hi,

I need to get a new DVD drive for my laptop. The problem is that the laptop BIOS can only boot from drives in master mode. Can anyone tell me whether the LiteOn SLW-831S chooses master or slave mode? (The drive will be the only drive on the secondary IDE channel).

Thanks in advance,

Edsko

Ok, the friendly folks of www.4launch.nl told me that this drive uses Slave mode, unfortunately. I did find a drive that uses Master mode though: the Panasonic UJ-845-BPN.
