I am new to this site and I am a complete novice and know little when it comes to the workings of the inside of a computer.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 (I know I heard about all the problems)
When I bought it through the College I was attending everything worked fine.. this was 3 years ago..
Now on start up I get this
IDE ERROR #1
and my DVD/CD/RW is not detected
at first .. all I had to do was pull it out and push it back in.
(there is a little switch that releases it from the computer no screws necessary)
now That does not even work.. I get lucky every now and again and my computer reads the drive.. but most of the time I can not.
As stated this was the DVD/CD/RW that came with the computer and is not new..
I believe it is a Toshiba drive :?:
Part # ZA2431P03 Serial # 2LCHA054354 TB7-A :eek:
model # UJDA720
DVD-ROM & CD-R/RW Drive
(this information taken from drive it'self)
Is there a fix for my problem?
I heard in another forum something about the 45 and 47 pin???
All I have on this is the female part that goes into the computer..
any information would be very helpful..
and I hope that someday I can be useful on the site too..
Thanks in advance..
