I have a HP 530i which I know is a re-badged Liteon 832S. Since I was having problems burning movies on Memorex DVD+RW DVD's with this drive (I had problems reading them on my Sony DVD player), I downloaded and successfully flashed the drive with the latest firmware for the 832S.
Since this did not solve the problem burning movies, I attempted a cross flash to the latest firmware for the 1633S which I have in another computer(and burns movies on the same discs with no problems whatsoever).
This crossflash did not complete and now my 530i/832s is not recognized by my computer's BIOS, so it is not accessible.
Is there any way to recover this apparently dead drive??
