I have a Toshiba Tecra 9100 and have a new 40GB hard drive to use but if I install the hard drive I get IDE #0 error.  I have tested the hard drive in other laptops with 100% sucsess but in any Toshiba laptop it gives the same error.  

I have been told that the firmware on the hard drive is causing the problem but need to know how to rectify the problem so I can use the hard drive as I only have a 4GB hard drive and desperatly need to upgrade.
