NEC 2510A - Oops I bricked it again

#1

Hey guys,

I was having problems burning to FUJIFILM so I decided (unwisely) to update some firmware. I ran the GUI version of binflash and installed a firmware update, after that it recognized in windows as a cd-rom but not a dvd so I flashed back to the latest original firmware from NEC. Now when I boot my bios or windows doesn’t recognize the drive. The drive lights still work and the tray opens/closes. Am I SOL? Or is there a way to recover?

I promise to never touch it again if I can get it working.

I got it fixed. I had to reinstall windows. I had two virtual drives that were screwing things up. Thanks for all the help!
