Hi,

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.

Thanks!

Maybe your optical drive is not the problem but the IDE card??

I would look on Toshiba's support site to see what drives are supported. Maybe the new drive is not supported?
