RE:TEAC CD-W216E on COMPAQ ARMADA 1750 LAPTOP
i know very little about laptops..(that out the way)
have a toshiba 24 speed cdrom drive (not cdrw) in above laptop and am trying to replace with TEAC CD-W216E (CDRW) DRIVE.
fits perfectly...same connnections ..
when bootup, syestem reports error "incorrect media type"..does not go any further..
if i remove harddrive then teac drive works fine as a cdrom(don't know about write at this stage)
cannot find any drivers or uttlities for this device ..
seems to be that harddrive and teac cdrw are both running as master on primary controller and neither have any jumpers.
need to place cdrw (i think) onto secondary controller as master but how?
any help would be greatly appreciated
best regards.....trev (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (email@example.com)
