I have a TDK 420N burner. I turned my PC on this morning and the acivity light is blinking and the tray wont open. This happened before but I fixed it by updating the firmware via a bootdisk. However when I try to redo the firmware via dos now I get these error codes 9 times out of 10.

ERROR: Upload and Burn Failed
However, sometimes the firmware update process will complete, and I will be able to open the tray, but nothing happens when I put CDs/DVD's in it, and when I reboot the PC the light on the drives starts flashing again.
Is the drive dead or can this be fixed?
