Ruined DVD Rom?

So recently I joined this forum trying to figure out my problems with my DVD ROM. Well I said I tried a firmware update for a Lite-on SOHW 1653 S to CS0T. Well I wasn’t paying attention and already had that current firmware update. Thing was my original DVD rom was a 1633 S not a 1653 S. So I think when I tried the firmware update it messed it up because it wasn’t cross flashed. I’m assuming cross flashed is what people mean when it changes a 1633 to a 1653 for example. I’ve been trying to read up on problems, but I can’t figure it out.

So if anyone knows how I can make my DVD go back to its original state and then patch it up again, it would be appreciated. Thanks for any help.

i don’t think your drive is damaged :wink:

and download [I]CS0T - patched - crossflashing, multi-colored LED[/I].

flash your drive with this firmware and it should be okay again.

Thank you so VERY much! It’s been re-patched and works correctly now. Thanks again so much! I was trying to fix this for literally 6 hours + … ^^ ^^ ^_^! I so excited!
