I have a Time notebook approximatly 18months old. I recently bought a dvd writer and fitted it. When booting the bios does not recognise it, stating their is no primary slave present.Even so it is recognised by xp and works ok. I tried putting the old one back and this isn't recognised any more either. The problem is that occasionally I do have to use the drive in dos. I was thinking that the bios was faulty but the drive is seen and works in XP. So I thought the bios would need updating, but cannot find an update anywhere. Has anybody had a similar fault or know where I can get a bios update. The model is a 8375 and also has these numbers: 0500-503-00465, and 00465NT01G4.
Thanks Ian
