You tried to update your firmware, which is not the same thing as "drivers".
What are your system specifications? Specifically, try to give us answers to "what motherboard & SATA controller are you using, and what drivers for the SATA controller are you using? Do you have any kind of RAID setup connected to the same SATA controller?" & other information like that.
Your drive is in safe mode, where it reports its firmware version as 0000. It is a feature Pioneer (and others) have engineered into the drives to prevent them from dying in the case of a bad firmware flash (like in this situation). As you see, you cannot use the drive, but it's not dead.
You should place the drive in another computer with a reliable SATA chipset and re-flash it with 1.22, or figure out what caused the flash process to go wrong in the first place (many people have performed firmware flashes before and succeeded, though there have been a select few failures), fix it, and re-flash 1.22. It is likely to succeed once you have the drive in an environment suitable for full use of optical drives. (Not every SATA controller setup really likes optical drives).
