Hello people, I have a toshiba tecra A8 EZ8413 where the dvd/cdrw is matshita panasonic UJDA770 but it's broken and not working.
I want to buy a replacement for it and I am looking to get dvd burner
I called toshiba and they want 100's for a dvd burner that cost like 50 bucks
My question is after reading this forum do I need a slim dvd burner? does it have to be in master or slave configuration, I tried to check with nero tool but doesn't say anything. However in windows device manager it's listed under :
secondary ide = device 0
I will assume that is master but I don't really know much about all this stuff.
I don't have another laptop, can someone tell me what drive do I need (toshiba dealer didn't want to tell me, he just said that it will be a panasonic)
thats how my laptop looks like
just like that, are those drives what is called slim drive?
So I think I need a dvd burner that comes as master already I was checking this : http://www.meritline.com/sony-nec-optiarc-ad-7530b-8x-dvd-dl-slim-drive-black.html
But can't find out if it's master (not that I am sure I need master yet)
I am hoping someone with knowledge about those things can help me here.
Sorry, about my english. I will wait for the help.
