[QUOTE=Albert;2747874]Sorry, when I say “EEPROM” here, I only mean the drive calibration information stored in the EEPROM, not the firmware (which on most drives is stored on a separate flash chip, I think).
With a corrupt EEPROM, the drive could be detected, but maybe not work. That said, usually a drive blinks/flashes if there is an EEPROM issue, so I don’t know for sure.[/QUOTE]
when i put in a disk (Cd/dvd) the light stays on for 2-3 sec. and then off and the noise of reading ends… i understand what you mean…
so can I restore the EEPROM with a program utiliy for example?
