Greetings all. I have the dreaded IDE#1 Error. I have a Toshiba Satellite 2455-S305 with an SD-R6012 DVD/CD combo.
Recently and without warning the bloody thing stopped writing/reading BLANK DVD's. I can read regular movie DVD's just fine.
I purchased a new TSL532 DVD/CD combo drive, Version 051, ROM Ver. HR08.
The drive is set to CSEL (it is stamped as such on the drive sticker). I followed the directions from the other lengthy thread, however, now my problem is that when I insert the drive into my laptop, the drive's LED continually Flashes and does not respond to anything, even pressing the eject button on the drive itself =(
I have an external USB enclosure, but when I use it with the drive, the LED still flashes and the drive does not respond.
I am stuck!! Your assistance is appreciated.
Here is a movie of the flasing LED:
By the way, the LED flashes even when I open the drive tray manually??
