Hey All,

I stumbled across this forum while trying to find a solution to this problem. Hopefully some one can help me out!

I have a Toshiba satellite 2805-s201 notebook and i just replaced factory DVD-Rom drive Toshiba SD-C2402 8x DVD-ROM Drive. After installing the new drive I get a IDE #1 Error instead of the normal toshiba flash screen at startup. Windows ME continues to load and the drive does work from windows. I just can't figure out why I'm getting this error. Any Ideas would be greaty appreciated.

Thanks

Who is the mfr. of the replacement drive? Could it be that if the drive is not Toshiba, the bios reports an error?

G'day All

I had this problem with a brand new SD-C2402 and then with a SD-C2502 dvd-rom both were bought to use in my TECRA 8000 which never had a DVD. They both played OK but I couldn't flash them and they were both locked in Region 1. I am in R4 Australia & have some R1 & R2 DVD's.

Apparently these are cable select drives and Toshiba laptops are not compatible?

After chasing up information I found out there was a fix so I went to the Toshiba computing forum by compuserve figuring the so called experts would help (joke). One expert said he knew how to do it but wouldn't tell me (what a guy).

I then found some info. but it was German so I tried to have had it translated and then worked out that if I connect pin/connectors 47 & 45 together it solves the poblem. Drives have no IDE #1 ERRORS and were succesfully flashed to RPC1 (Region free).

If anyone wants the jpeg I made of the pinouts then you are welcome.

Hi VLG466
Had the very same problem with my Toshiba Satellite 2805-S302. Exept that the drive does Not even work under ME. I'd very much appreciate if you could send me the jpeg. By the way, if you could provide me with a reference to that german info you found I'd be more than happy to translate and repost (being German).

thx

Just done the same thing with my Tosh laptop and SD-C2612 DVD after attempting to flash it to region free... Now no DVD and the same error.

Would prefer to fix it myself, but if not as it's a brand new laptop I guess it's going to have to be a plead ignorance and return to base job. Any help much appreciated.

maybe go to manufactor site and get a good flask and reflash it !

If you could still see the DVD this might work of course ;) I've not seen anything but hardware solutions sofar :(

Please Email the jpeg to me. I am having this same identical problem after switching my cd with a CDRW (both Toshiba) on a Satellite 2800. After the swap, I get IDE #1 error.

Thank you VERY MUCH!!!

I have a new sony crx830e drive and I am getting the error IDE #1 on my toshiba sat pro 6000 the drive will only work whilst windows is being loaded but is not seen by the device manager, if I plug it in after windows has loaded it will spin, eject etc but still it is not recogized, is this a problem with the firmware or the laptop, also is there a site that can explain how you flash drives etc and get into the bios so novices like me canuse the advice given, thanks in desperation.

Hello

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 with Windows 2k SP4 and have upgraded the existing DVD drive (Toshiba SD-C2502 [FW 1313]) to a Sony CRX830E [FW J1K1].

YES - I am getting the IDE 1 error on bootup.

However if insert the Sony while Windows is running the CD drive is recognised and seams to work fine until the machine is rebooted with the IDE 1 error occuring again :(

I have used the the utility to change the master/slave/cable select option with no change in the result.

I have even soldered pins 45 & 47 on the caddy with the only change being that the drive can not be "gracefully" unpluged from windows once installed "hot". On reboot there is still the IDE 1 error.

Any suggestions??

Good News!

I forgot to change back the Sony Drive setting to MASTER using the
E2MS utility!

No IDE 1 error! Laptop boots from CD!

All appears to be working, finally. ;)

After a year in the cooler, i took back my missflashed DVD rom drive.

Toshiba Satellite 1805-s203
Unit: TOSHIBA SD-C2502 with Rom ver 1313

One year ago, I missflashed the unit and i didn't find the way to make it live again so i took off the part from my laptop so it could start windows faster than it did when the missflashed dvd was connected.

So this time i took some time reading the posts of many people and found the solution. You know a lot has been told about the famous pin 47 and 45 bridge connection.

Well here it is, you don't have to buy an IDE to LAP CD DRIVE connection or anything, the only thing you need is:

1. A tiny screwdriver X preferred
2. A piece of copper wire or another tiny wire (as thin as a hair) like 1cm long

Step by step.

NOTE: You don't have to find your original firmware, it's restored after the operation to RPC-2 With region code locked as originally was- Your computer must be off!

1.- Lift the plastic plate with the INTERNET and APP1 APP2 buttons with pressure
2.- Take off the 2 screws in the top of the keyboard
3.- Lift the keyboard and you'll see if you pay attention right under the letter "K" of your keyboard when you lifted it a screw that you have to take out and another screw you have to take out its the one just up the "F9 and F10" keys.
4.- Pull out the case of the DVD drive
5.- Remove the upper case of the DVD drive (3 screws and 2 at the back)
6.- In the back part of the DVD Drive its a tiny hole that you have to pull down a little "thing" that makes the dvd case come out
7.- After you've done all that YOU HAVE TO CHECK THE SCHEME JPG. wich is nothing but the pins name that you gonna use next
8.- With a flat screwdriver you have to pull back the pins 47 and 45 so you can attach in the back of them the piece of wire to make a bridge between them. (THIS MODE SETS YOUR DVD TO SLAVE)
9.- After that you have to close the dvd case and put it again at your laptop.
10.-Turn on your computer and as you can see by the time it takes to load windows your DVD is now back to life and restored with maybe 1 or 2 hours of work instead of buying a new one.

NOTE 2: If you missflash your drive again it's easy to make it live again, all you have to do its take the wire out and it's set back to MASTER

and again if you missflash it PUT THE WIRE AGAIN AND ITS SLAVE and again again again again.
