I recently have come back home from college and was told by my family to fix their computer (being an Information Technology major, I of course have to repair everything when I get home).
Anyway, their DVD drive, for some crazy reason, was not reading any DVDs or CDs, so I attempted to uninstall and reinstall it, with no luck.
I figured that I miht have to upgrade the firmware or drivers. I noticed that it only used the default Windows driver, so I continued to go onto updating the firmware. I attempted to update to the MS0M version of firmware, but It spit out the wonderful error “Unable to flash firmware. Please contact with your vendor !” (Wonderful Engrish)
I then tried to upgrade with the MS0N firmware; this processes seemed successful at first, with it processing and reaching 100%; then the program stopped responding and crashed (wonderful). I figured the drive is basically dead firmware-wise, although it still displays the firmware version as being MS0C, the default that the drive came with.
Ever since then, I have been trying to re-flash the drive with various firmware, completely unsuccessful with each try. I’ve attempted to use LtnFW and EEPROM_Utility, both failing in helping me restore the drive.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!
