I just bought the nec 6500a and I am trying to install it on Toshiba satellite Pro 6100. However, I am getting an IDE #1 ERROR. I removed the hardrive and still I was getting the same error (along with #0 for the hardrive).
The drive was manufactured on November 2004, but I cannot get any other information since it is not recognised even in the bios.
I found in other forum (http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/showthread.php?t=1247&page=2&pp=15) that a possible solution is to bridge pins 45 and 47 in the drive, but I don't want to go there and still I don't know if I can do it that way.
Could you please help me resolve this problem?
thank you very much
