Firstly, you don’t need to get your point across in capitals - it’s considered rude (shouting).
Secondly, my brother has got two of these drives. First one flashed ok, second died like yours did. He’s been unable to revive it so far
The first one that flashed ok has very poor performance in writing and reading DVD-R, +R, ect. :a I suggest you try to get another drive from a reputable manufacturer (Pioneer, NEC, Benq, ect).
