with a DVD-CDR/W drive (also Toshiba). The replacement drive works fine,
except that the system will not boot from a bootable DVD or CD. Replacing
the original CD drive, restores bootability, and the replacement DVD-CDR/W
boots in the portable from which I took it.
Any one any thoughts as to why this might happen.
Re: New DVD Drive won't Boot
Some DVD drives insist on being master--is yours set up that way?
Have you checked the drive to see if it is capable, most are, but there may
be some that are not.
Are these bootable CD/DVDs you are using home made or commercial?
