I was wondering if someone could help me out please.

I am trying to replace a faulty DVD/CD-RW drive in a Toshiba Satellite A-10. The original drive is a SD-R2412. I am trying to replace it with a TS-L462 by Toshiba/Samsung.

The drive fits fine and light flashes when I switch the notebook on but I get the following error : IDE #1 ERROR and then Windows continues to load fine.

Drive does not work in windows or eject.

Is it possible to get this drive working in this notebook?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know much about laptops, but on my cd-rw there is a jumper that had to be set as master, it might be worth a look.
