Philips SPD8005bm/17 slim DVDRW
I am trying to find firmware to change my dvd burners IDE setting. Philips said they do not support the drive and referred me to another company that is pretty useless. I know the drive works fine as Windows sees the burner but it has the same IDE location as the hard drive. Also, the BIOS does not see the burner which draws me to conclude the hard drive and the burner are trying to talk on the same IDE channel. Am I correct, can anyone help? Is there a universal piece of firmware that will let me change either my hard drive or burners IDE location?
Philips SPD8005BM/17 working now!!
Thank you mynikko and Carlos,
This process works perfectly!!! Anyone who is having problems with their Philips SPD8005BM/17 upon installing it should follow mynikko's procedure exactly.
Again, thanks to mynikko and Carlos, your efforts saved me the frustration I'm sure you experienced. Carlos figured it out, but myniko fine-tuned the process, figured out exactly what steps are needed and why, and explained the process very clearly. I found this thread within minutes of searching. 10 minutes later, my Philips DVD burner is now a Master and working fine. Thankfully, on my Dell, I had no further problems and didn't have to short the pins as myniko had to do to make his Toshiba notebook happy. Thanks again!
