After request sent to NEC Germany I recieved New reverse ATA firmware pack for ND-7551A. But previously I patched original 1-02 firmware with Liggy’s ND7551 Bitsetting firmware 1-02. Should I roll back to the original one before upplying reverse ATA firmware pack? And my second question for Liggy: As I understood from NEC support, reverse ATA firmware will change the firmware version to 1.P2. When Liggy’s ND7551 Bitsetting 1.P2 firmware may be available?
P.S. My original problem was the following. My new ND-7551A was not recognized by Toshiba Satellite M45 laptop. The original drive was Master on second IDE chanel. After reading several threads I assumed that the reason for that was my ND-7551A factory configured as Master and my laptop needs it to be Slave. Am I right? Maybe someone had any experiance with Toshiba M45 series latop and NEC drives? Please, advice.
