NEC3540A dead?

Hi, I was burning a DVD-R and realized i forgot to add a crucial file and cancelled it, unfortunately Nero decided not to let me cancel and hung so I restarted the computer. However, now my NEC3540A hangs whenever I read or attempt to write and nothing I do helps. Will reflashing the firmware help at all? Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!

Ok, I flashed to 1.04, Liggy’s 1.04, and even back to original 1.01 and nothing happened…Is there anything else I can try? Thanks so much, I really don’t want to buy another one of these things if I can help it…
