Yeah... that's common. The Toshiba DVD drives uses a different drive select than other people's DVD drives. Look to the manufacturer of your DVD/CDRW drive and look to see if there's a firmware update that will allow you to set the drive select differently. If not, then you'll be stuck with the IDE1 thing forever.

Now... here's the fun part: some of these drives will give you an IDE error, they'll never boot, but some of them will work perfectly when you get into Windows.

How do I get the BIOS to recognize a new optical drive (more advanced - has DVD R/RW capabilities)? BIOS reports IDE1 error upon POST. I put the old/bad one back and get no error, but cannot read CD/DVD


Go online to Toshiba.com
There are several BIOS and Firmware updates to be done if you choose to use a different DVD Rom.
The web site is very easy to use and has a lazy mode! Log in your laptop and it will do all the work for you!!

Cannot write to the DVD drive in my compaq Presario V2000


The only thing I find for your laptop is a firmware update. I am assuming you aren't trying to write DVD's since your model shows to be a DVD/CDRW Drive (GCC-4243N).
Try the firmware patch and see if that clears up your problem, here is the link:

When i upgraded to xp my cdrw/dvd drive has not worked.


the problem is not a driver. if windows xp doesn't recognize your dvd drive, is because is dead.... or disable on the bios.... check the bios and see if in the page where shows all the drives, appears your dvd drive. if not, the drive past away..... :-) . maybe if you disconnected the drive, try to reconnect it. plz excuse my bad english, i'll wait your comments bye!

Your laptop is not new enough for winxp. There are no drivers for it.Im surprised that the BIOS let you install it.
I would try to use the win2000 drivers, they may work.
Sorry for the not so good news.

Please let me know how you make out.
