ASUS 5224 - Dead?

vbimport

#1

I have just purchased an Asus CD burner (5224a). The unit was fully functional a few hours back, until I attempted to burn a cd. It wouldn’t burn a cd…okay so I thought that perhaps the 5224 was incompatible with clonecd…nope. I then proceeded to obtain the 1.35 flash .exe from asus… . Flashed it successfully and now it has the reading and writing capabilities of a blind fish impaled on a cocktail stick. ARG. It simply won’t work. Bios and windows both detect the device. When I insert a cd the read led flickers for a while and then stops. What should I do?
