I am having a real nightmare with this firmware update, I installed a btc 1016im dvd burner 3 weeks ago but the drive would stop burning and would lock the tray, I ran the firmware update (using liveupdate) and the computer stopped reponding.. I had no other option but to to power off and when I switched it back on - nothing! the PC would not even boot.
Bought a new MOBO at the weekend and used mtkflash 180 in dos to restore the drive, this at least had the drive being recognised in BIOS and the tray opening/closing again, but the firmware was still out of date.
I tried again using Liveupdate to flash with new firmware and it happend again - PC stopped responding (left it for 3 hours!), so again I had to switch off and when I powered on - nothing.
My machine does not POST with beeps, my post probe is not finding fault, it sound like the machine is booting, but nothing appears on screen, arrrggghh why is this happening to me!!
I have tried resetting CMOS, pulling everything from MOBO and booting out of case, tried using DOS boot disk, troubleshooter disk - nothing works.
Using Jetway V2MDMP MOBO with Athlon XP 1800.
So I guess I'll have to buy another MOBO and forget about updating the drive with a07m for now, but would be grateful for any advise on why this could be hapening.
