Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Toshiba SD-R6252 DVD+RW Drive (Windows XP Home) [IDE]
I found a guy who is selling the same model of drive as the one i'm having problems with, speaking of which, you may be able to advise me on this.
I successfully dismantled and remounted the main mechanism of my drive and was wondering if there is anything else to an internal drive than what you see embedded in the tray, i.e. Printed Circuit Board, motor, laser assembly and tracking motor?
There is a flexible ribbon wire that connects the PCB to the laptop and i managed to unplug that at the mech. end, and remove the whole tray mechanism!
If i buy the same model drive, what do you reckon is the probability of success, if i replace that part of the unit with a new set?
I understand very well how the drive works, but have no knowledge whatsoever about what are the most vulnerable parts... Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Look forward to hearing from you.
