Can't update firmware on Pioneer DVR 108

Recently my DVR 108 decided not to burn dvd’s anymore. I am using 1.10 firmware and figured that its time to update. Problem is that when i try to install any version of firmware a message pops up and says “target not found.” This burner never worked with nero ever since i got it along with the computer. I had been using Roxio but now even that wont work. Help.

if you have a RPC1 firmware on the drive, you will need to use DVRFlash

Sorry but what does RPC1 mean? I am a newb when it comes to computer hardware terms and installations.

A firmware update cannot resolve hardware problems.

Install a new Nero trial version and test your burner.
