I have a LG CED-8080B drive which is dead after a bad firmware update. While updating the firmware, system restarted and I’m left with a dead drive which is not detected by Mobo Bios / Firmware utilities. Even MTKFLASH doesn’t respond.
This drive was bought in Germany but even though I’m in Korea now LG refused to provide me International warranty saying the drive was not purchased in Korea.
Can any of you please help me to recover this drive?
For any Koreans in the forum, is there a place in Seoul where it’s possible to get this repaired (bios chip replacement, etc…) without paying a kings ransom to LG for changing the whole CDR mother board?
Btw, LG is not a bad company and surely I recommend LG drives for Price / Performance advantage.
(Sorry - previously I had mistyped the Model # - Apologies).
Many thanks guys.
