[QUOTE=Bob;2119591]I noticed in a review at Newegg that this drive ships set to master. Did yours and did you use Liggy’s tool? I am assuming all hard drives in lappy’s are set to master?[/QUOTE]
I just DL’d the RPC1 FW, used necflash_wingui to flash & set the Book Type to DVD-ROM.
I’m using a Clevo D901C, all 3 HD’s are SATA, & the Optical drive it originally came with was an NEC Optiarc AD-7530B, but as both I & Liggy found out, it really wasn’t a TRUE Optiarc drive, and the burns were less than stellar. But the drive itself was set to MASTER, so I didn’t have much to worry about.
In my older Dell XPS (Gen1) notebook, the HD is IDE, & the Optical drive was set to SLAVE.
I hope that was of some help.
