This is what I get for following instructions.
I got some new DVD+Rs tonight, and on the package it recommended updating my firmware to be sure everything’s kosher. Good idea I thought, I’ve never updated it, and maybe there’ll be some important fixes.
So, I install the software that came with my drive, and it goes through the whole update process. It says everything is fine; reboot the computer for the changes to take effect.
I’m sure everyone can guess what happened next…
I rebooted, and BLAMO! It’s gone.
Windows no longer recognizes my drive. I tried manually installing the new firmware, but since windows doesn’t think the drive is there, it obviously didn’t work.
I don’t know if this means anything or not, but I still see the drive listed in post, and I can open and close it anytime before the starting windows screen appears.
Is there anything I can do, or is it toast?
Thanks for any input.
