sorry I make a subject of this, just it's my last try. When I tried to flash my 4012s5 I made a huge mistake, instead of secondary master I took seconday slave (yeah really dumb). I read THE forum of course, and I searched around to fix it.
What I tried was:
-download the firmware again and try to install
-uninstall the drivers and have windows xp looked it up again
-switch IDE cables, to see if that maybe worked
-and I put it in someone other's computer to see if it worked
Till now nothing
I did the MTKFLASH:
1. a:\mtkflash 4 R /B /M blaat.bin
3. then I made the mistake, they were not found anymore
4. try to get back the oldfirmware with mtkflash ( 4 W /R /B blaat.bin)
Then that's it.. My writer is now known by XP as AVX CD/DVD ROM SCSI CDrom device. It doesn't do anything.
The light is on (that is the only hope I have after reading the topics that it's maybe possible to get it alive again) but I cannot open or close it at all.
My question is if someone could maybe help me of have some suggestions, or a good link where I can find 'the final hope' to let my lovely burner get alive again. Thanks for reading this already
