at first i want to say sorry for my bad english but i decided to post here, because i have a big problem.
i own a Sony DW-U18A DVD-RW and tried to flash it to an DW-700A. normaly this should work without problems. the flashing-process still worked fine and after rebooting the drive was identified as an DW-700A (in hardware-manager and also in nero).
but the problem is, that there is no possibility anymore to open the tray. when i press the "open-button" only the green light flashs but nothing else happens.
so i thought: "no problem. i will download the "original" firmware (DW-U18A), flash this back and all problems will be resolved." but this was not korrekt. this didn't solve my problem.
is my U18a dead now or is there any possibility to save it?
i used the firmwares from http://codeguys.rpc1.org/ and also patched the firmwares from there with OmniPatcher for "cross-flashing". but nothing helped.
please help me.
