I just got a good deal on I/O Magic IDVDRW8D and since it was MFG’d on 11/2003 I knew it would need a firmware flash.
So I got the correct firmware and went to flash the drive and as soon as I started the flashing process it froze my system? I waited for 30 minutes just in case it unlocked and completed the flash … anyways it didn’t. I thought I’d be ok to reset and reboot (I had no choice anyway) since it didn’t appear to write anything and froze right away.
So I rebooted and my system & it won’t get past the IDE dectection stage of the BIOS? I have power to my other writer and the tray will open but there’s no power going to the IDVDRW8D (no light)?
Any suggestions other than takeing it back?
I was thinking of just RMA’g the damn thing?
