it's not just this brand, like i said in the original post, it doesn't read ANYTHING. retail discs included. it has to be the firmware? after i flashed it with the KL05, that's when it started acting up. then i found some KL02 on these forums, flash it with that, still didn't work. if someone could send me/post the stock KL02 firmware, i'd really appreciate it. if it doesn't work after that, then i'll just get a new one, it was only like $35 but still, it's brand new so i don't wanna ditch it right away.
