DVD Rom Drive does not power up after failed firmware upgrade


I have an LG DVD Rom drive that I was trying to update the driver. My PC froze in the middle of the update and now the DVD drive does not even power up. I know that when doing a firmware update, the process should never be interrupted or the drive is history.

Question…is there any way to load the firmware to make the drive work again…maybe via DOS. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.



Since this is a double post, I’ll close this one and leave the one in Gen. Hardware open.
