SW-208 cdrw firmware update

Please someone help me I downloaded a firmware update from HP for my Samsung SW-208 cdrw and in the process of rebooting it stopped responding now the drive cannot be seen in any of my machines what do i do!
ps. I had already contacted HP they cant help unless i pay them.

is your cdrw a 208b or 208f ? sounds like the flashing killed it…or maybe not. suggest getting appropriate firmware @ http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?category=6&manufactor=28
try reflashing. is the cdrw drive recognised in BIOS ?
