Ok, I connected the drive to the USB adapter and it works perfectly.... So the drive is ok..... So that means it is either the Laptop to IDE adapter, or the motherboard.
Has anyone else ever had this issue? I am connecting the drive to the secondary IDE port. It shows up under my computer, but always says there is no disk. I have a M10000. I have checked the adapter, it seems in perfect shape, no breaks no nothing..... has anyone else had this issue when connecting a ROM to IDE?
