Panasonic (Matshita) UJDA760 - how to make it slave?

Hello, everybody!

I have notebook from Toshiba with Panasonic (Matshita) UJDA760 combo drive. But I bought NEC ND-6650 to replace it and decided to install UJDA760 drive in my friend’s Asus L1400 (pretty old) notebook. The Notebook’s CD/DVD drive connector is the same, so it’s not a problem to install the drive, but I got the problem, because the drive’s firmware set it as master and this notebook has only one IDE channel, so HDD is on primary already. If I remove HDD drive, Combo drive detected fine. I understand I need some utility to change primary/slave setting in FW or a firmware that will make the drive slave. But I was unable to find it on the internet. Could anyone help me with finding such utility or FW version? My drive has FW v1.51, HW v1.00 as it shown on the drive’s label.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Thank you very very much in advance!

Yours, Maxim.

Hello, everybody!

How can it be true that noone never had any experience with Matshita drives and firmwares?
