After downloading and running the firmware update for my LG GCE-8481B, the drive appears to have died.
The software appeared to hang when I tried to select where the firmware was located (trying to browse), and then when I rebooted, the drive wouldn't power up and wasn't recognized in bios.
I took the drive out, checked all the cables, nothing seems to work. I can't even get power to it to eject etc. (although I have used the pin-hole to get the CD in there out)
Can I do anything to recover this drive!?
