Firstly, apologies if this thread is in the wrong place. I've just registered, as people here seem to know their stuff and I am kind of desperate.
I was reinstalling my PC and everything was working, when I decided to try and be clever and flash the firmware on my CD-RW drive. I used the wrong thing and now both my CD-RW (hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8483b) and my DVD-RW (BenQ DW1620) are both recognized only by my PC's BIOS. Windows sees what drives they are (i.e. names are correct), but says "This device is disabled. (Code 22). Click Enable Device to enable this device." It is then unable to enable either drive.
Before I go and buy some new hardware - is there any way that I can get the drives "unflashed"?
