I have a new Toshiba HDD, MK4026GAX 40gb, and it works perfectly in most laptops except in my Toshiba Tecra 9100, when i fit it I get IDE #0 Error and can not get any further.

I have been told that it works in Compaq laptops because the firmware is compaq, does anyone know how I can fix this please?
