I see a bunch of different firmwares, some I assume is to set it to slave. However when I go to run the update it says CD not found so I assume the firmware will only work on certain laptops. As for soldering is 49 + 47 pin master and 47 + 45 slave?
There are quite many threads about Toshiba slim dvdrw’s on our forum. This thread can be a good start for your search. Member TOSHIBAer has posted many useful comments.
thx I read that long thread although it seems to be mostly about samsung drive. My next idea is that my slimline is cable select. My harddrive has jumper settings. If I set the jumper on my HD shouldn’t the slimline dvd automatically choose slave?
Toshiba and Samsung (TSST =Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Corporation) are one and the same.
About HDD’s jumpers, you’ll have to consult your lappy’s manual. Don’t think its that simple you are telling…
Slim optical drives can have; master, slave, CS, reverse CS, aso firmware. Drive itself can not choose position in this respect.
SD-R6012 is only [B]1x[/B] DVD-R/-RW burner. My idea was to get you thinking on compatible replacement of this drive.
But if you like to play around, go on with it and tell us your findings.
