Thank you for the response. I read through your entire thread, you helped a lot of people resolve this, sorry to be bringing it back up
This is on a HP DV9200US laptop. Identical DVD drive. Not sure what you are referring to by jumpers, nor do I know how it is configured. I was hoping the old drive was faulty, and it would be as easy as plug and play. Sadly, that does not appear to be the case.
I don't have access to my install disk, it is buried somewhere at a house hours from here. Is there any other way to test it?
Thank you again!
