Yeah, thats the flash program and directions I tried to use in those post, but the program doesnt recognise my drive as a Lite-On. Reading the thread you pointed me to, I thought maybe it was a LG instead, but on the label of the drive it says LIT-SH-16A7(B), and according to the physical description, it is a Lite-On. So I just need to figure out how to get the flash program to see my HP as a Lite-On.
I feel so retarded now, I just tried redownloading the program to make sure I had the right flash program, and thats when I noticed that I downloaded it and XFlash for some reason, and it was XFlash that I was trying to use, and it wasnt recognising the drive. I trying the correct program now and it seems to be working so far. I’ll be back with the results.
