As mentioned above, I have a seemingly dead LG DRD8160b DVD-ROM on my hands, which, I am quite sure, a mate has misflashed. I know its a mediatek chipset, all well and good. I can use MTKFlashWin. Not a problem.
HOWEVER, there is one major problem. I plug it into any IDE channel, on any given system, and it locks the system at post. It doesnt appear to power cycle on boot either (ie. its LED doesnt flash upon power on of the system)
Is this drive totally and surely dead or is there a way to flash it back to life?
