I have Toshiba Satellite A40 with Toshiba SD-R2412 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Optical drive. I have to change my optical drive due to lens failure and I bought TEAC DW-224E as per recommendation in Toshiba Notebook Manual provided to me.
When I insert and turn on laptop, I get IDE #1 error message and I don't get any optical drive in device manager.
I understand from other thread that joining Pin 45 and 47 using aluminum foil will solve the problem.
Could anyone hep me in giving step by step in how to do it if possible with screen shots?
Most important this is how to locate exact Pins 45 and 47 in my TEAC drive?
Folks, kindly help me to solve this issue for me.
Thanks in advance.
