One of my friends just brought me his DVD burner (1008IM) becuase he said it was having trouble reading media. The first thing I did was try to flash the drive with the newest firmware (using DRV UPDATE), but it would not flash, saying the "Flashing is incorrect"
I started doing some tests with the drive, and this is what I noticed
1) The drive WILL burn DVDs
2) The drive WILL NOT read CDs (burned or software)
3) The drive WILL NOT write to blank CDs
4) The drive WILL NOT read DVDs (burned ones as well as Store-purchased DVD Movies)
It seems to me that the drive may be "stuck" in DVD burning mode, since it will not do much else. Has anyone had this problem before, or know if there is anything I can do to get this drive to burn CDs and read DVDs?
