Hi all, i need to use my toshiba sd-r2512 in primary slave configuration. Actually it's primary master with firm 1720, it's possible?Or my notebook can't see it :sad:
thx in advance
Hi and Welcome,
at first you’ll need an adapter to connect the drive to a standard IDE port on a desktop computer.
Secondly, you need a firmware for your drive that is configured for slave setting.
Firmware can be found here: http://hijacker.rpc1.org/toshiba/index.php?path=SD-R2512/ and here: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?category=15&manufactor=31 but I don’t know, which is the correct one for your drive and the intended settings. Maybe there is some readme in the packages, I haven’t had a look at them.
Check the notebook bios settings.
I suggest to buiy a slimtype IDE adaptor and then try flashing eg. 102x.
thx both for reply!
For the adapter: i have it, so no problem.
For the firm… i have tried 1n22 and 1f20 at this page http://hijacker.rpc1.org/toshiba/index.php?path=SD-R2512/ but without results…
Today i will try the 1020 but i lost my hope…
On pc’s bios, unfortunately, there’s not any option to change primary/secondary setting (shitti model -_- )
simply shorp 47&48 pin of data port connector of drive…
and you get opposition setting of drive default mode
