I have a Combo drive Pioneer BDC-TD03 on a Sony Vaio F12 with Windows 7 64bits, I was burning a DVD using Nero Lite , it reported a burning error and since, the drive stopped working altogether . I tried all kinds of media DVDs CDs, it always asks to insert a disc. I can’t boot with a bootable windows CD anymore so the issue is probably not related to drivers or registery.
I have looked everywhere for a firmware to try and flash it. couldn’t find it ! tried the microsoft Fix it troubleshooter also and removed it and put it back , the drive is detected and seamingly troublefree, but once a media is inserted it shows no life!
Is there anyway I can bacup the firmware and re flash it, I found a BDC-TD02 firmware on the sony support site , is it okay to flash it with ? Or could it be an issue with the lenses?
Any help is very much appreciated.
