Blown firmware update - 750UF - Help

I was updating the firmware of my Plextor 750UF (USB 2.0) from 1.02 to 1.03 and I had a surge/interruption of power. I am now unable to upgrade the firmware as each attempt results in a failed installation. The power light is on but the tray will not open.

I tried to reflash in safe mode and I tried with DMA off.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Note: I just installed Plextools Trial but I’m not sure if that will help.

I just got off the phone with Plextor and the drive is [U]fried.[/U] As it is under warranty, they will swap it out.
