Optorite Binary Firmware?

My burner stopped working when I was erasing a DVD using k3b in linux. I suspect the flash somehow got fried during the process because my system doesn’t even recognise it anymore. It is an Optorite DD0401. Since my computer can’t even recognize it, I suspect I need to use something like MTKFlash, but MTKFlash needs binary firmware. All I can find for the DD0401 is an executable file.

Does anyone know where I might find binary firmware for the Optorite DD0401 that will be compatable with MTKFlash?

Thanks

That sounds like a serious hardware error and cannot be resolved by simple flashing another firmware…

But you could try it of course.

Tested the drive in another computer?
