HYE
just recieved this new drive for my laptop but the Drive is not recognized.
there is no jumper on it
is there a way with a driver to change from master to slave?
thank you

You will need a special software tool to change it to slave but the tool probably doesn’t exist for your drive, well, not in public anyway. I would need a copy of your firmware to adapt the LiteOn tool I have to work with your drive. thinks Maybe it’s time I adapted the LiteOn tool to work with any drive.

[B]Note:[/B] Only use 876’s EEPROM files as a reference. Don’t flash them to your drive as this will overwrite factory calibration data unique to your drive and will most likely stop it from burning well!!!
