[qanda]This thread is about the Asus DRW-2014L1T. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello all, about 1 month ago i bought a Asus DRW- 2014L1T dvd lightscribe burner, brand new from ebay and when it arraived, i plugged it in and it was quite noisy but i have learned to deal with it.

I tried to flash my firmware today and i used asus’s exe from there website.

The problem is the flash progress is stuck at 93% and it has not moved for 20 mins.

I dont know what to do. should i just shut the pc down?



Try to wait some time… if it doesn’t move, it may be lost anyway. If it is still recognized by BIOS, it may be possible that it can be flashed again with MTKFLASH or XSF.


Can you eject the drive tray, insert a disc, and hear it spin up like normal?


well i dont want to put anything in the drive while the flash.exe is running. But it appears the drive is idle (no flashing led after a minute) which makes me think its done.

Evil boy - the problem is that asus release thier firmware in a exe and you have to use that prog to flash the drive.
