Hello from Germany,
I’m new to this forum and have some troubles with an old Compaq notebook where I changed the CD drive.
The new DVD burner is a LG GSA-T10N which seems to be coded as Cable Select.
Unfortunately the notebook isn’t able to communicate with the drive before an OS is installed, so I needed to rebuild the old TEAC CD drive to install Windows XP.
After installation finished, I can change the drive and install the LG which works well with XP - but still it isn’t possible to boot from this drive.
So I’m searching for a software or firmware to set the LG DVD burner fixed as Master - anyone here who knows how to do that or where I can find that?
My own activities:
I searched on LG Germany and LG worldwide, but found nothing. The drive itself has no jumper to change as far as I can see, and it’s not possible to open it without destroying the cristal clear adheasive tape which seals all edges.
Sorry for possible mistakes or wrong expressions - english is not my mother language…
