Hi,[QUOTE=tshinji;2468328] about a week ago my computer did an automatic update using HP Update, it said the [B]update was for[/B] my Optiarc DVD RW AD 7201S [B]firmware[/B]. Since this update I have not been able to use my drive at all, it will not even open.(…)[/QUOTE]is your computer still covered by warranty? If so, then contact HP support to have them fixed what they broke.
[QUOTE=bean55;2468330]Use your restore point to go back to the day before the update[/QUOTE]I seriously doubt, a restore point will recover a drive from a bad firmware.
