My old DVD drive (ATAPI) died in my ASUS laptop!
Bought a new used one on the same interface/specs, but when it's connected the HDD is not recognized by BIOS!
But the DVD drive works! What to do ? The DVD drive is not on the same connection (secondary) HDD is primary!
It's a Toshiba SD-R2312!
Found that the drive is set to Secondary Slave the original Panasonic drive to Secondary Master, is there a way to change this ? HDD is Primary Master. And disapears from BIOS when the Toshiba drive is present.
Found the manual on-line and it provides no means to change settings, but since on the secondary channel, it shouldn't matter. Does your BIOS provide a means to reset to its default configuration? If so, that might reset everything.
