How to recover a dead drive?



Not too long ago I thought I would upgrade the bios on my LG 48x24x48 drive ( GCE-8481B )

When I ran the bios update, it appeared to freeze, and after messing around a bit, I rebooted.

The drive was dead (no power to the eject button, not detected in bios post).

I tried all the bios update’s from LG, their software doesn’t see the dead drive.

I tried using MTK flash to put the original back in, but I get about 10 lines of ERASING 0% and then a ‘can’t erase’ error message.

Is there anything else I can try? Any other ideas?
