I have the following problem and ask the forum for help
IÂ´d like to substitute a CD-Rom Combo Drive in my notebook Siemens/Fujtsu Amilo K7600
for a DVD burner NEC AD-5540A.
My hard disc drive is detected as primary master, while my old Combo/CD drive is detected as secondary master.
Since the notebook demands devices set as cable select, I assume that the IDE controller detects the above settings automatically.
My new DVD burner should be set as cable select as well to be detectable.
BUT the new NEC AD-5540A is set as primary master.
The NEC website shows that the said drive is able to be changed to a secondary master setting via â€œflashingâ€.
a) Does the flashed/changed setting to secondary master on the new device mean that it will be detected in consideration of the cable-select-necessity?
b) How do I change/flash the settings in a safe manner with the below mentioned tool?
Do I need an additional flash tool?

Thank you very much in advance.
