Question about Panasonic (UJDA750) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

Open Question

Hi, replacing old MATSHITA UJDA 750 with identical new one, just bought at - cannot install on my Toshiba Satellite Pro M30 machine (6 years old). While boot up, it thinks a while (a minute or two) but does not recognize the drive. It says : System Error 0203 Failure IDE#2. CD-ROM does not show up in Device list in Control Panel. Win XP3 (2002). I thought it's a Master/Slave issue (however never heard of IDE#2, it's all the way refers to IDE#1) - I have removed HDD from laptop, reboot and got another problem - Failure IDE#0 just added to the IDE#2 above. Kind a strange. How can I have it proved that my new CD/DVD-ROM is functional at all ? Is that problem known ? Any simple workaround for the problem ? Would BIOS update for SPM30 from 1.3 to 1.7 help to recognize the optical drive ?

My laptop charger is not working

Two possible causes:

1)your laptop charger is dead or malfunction

2)your laptop dc jack is loose or malfunction

If you need to turn around your charger at one position so that the laptop will charge, that means your dc jack is dead. Otherwise your laptop ac adapter should be replaced.
