Recently when I started up my laptop I noticed an IDE #1 ERROR, I wasnt sure what this was so I ignored it. When my computer started up the cd drive had gone. Since this happened I have used the backup cds to restore the computer but the cd drive does not appear in Windows. This seems to be a problem with Windows and not the cd drive as I can boot from a cd. I really need some help fixing it.

So far I've already tried removing the upperfilter and lowerfilter from the registry and it didn't work. I do have an external cd drive and have looked for the drivers on the Toshiba Driver CD but couldn't find them.

Anyone know what the problem could be?

Hi

Well, in my opinion there could be two possibilities:
a)IDE controller could be dead
b) the drive connection could be not 100%

I donít see any other possibility as to contact the service partner
He should check the controller and the connection
