Hello Patrick,
had same problem with Toshiba Satellite and Toshiba-Samsung drive. If replacement drive is Toshiba (even if it's not) you need to contact a person called <email snipped> Gave him all the info and he sent necessary firmware (CSEL changer) and instructions. If you have access to a desktop PC this will be a bonus, as you will need to buy a very cheap IDE adapter (from Maplins) so you can connect the DVD/CD drive to the desktop to do the job.
Best of luck,
any more help? glad to
