So it all started when the dvd rom tray wouldn’t open up, but the green light on the front was always on/
I tried powering down and opening it with the emergency release hole, but I got no reaction whatsoever.
So then I tried updating the firmware. I used the version checker and it had version as BOOT and OEM as some kind of gibberish symbol. So I went on ahead and updated it with the US09 firmware since it was the newest one. Afterwards, it auto-rebooted and the drive tray was working once again…
But not so fast… now it can’t read any disc at all. Even with no disc in the tray, it would let me go into the dvd drive without giving me an “insert disc first” msg.
So now I’m stuck. I don’t have any clue what could be wrong with this dvd drive. So does anyone have any suggestions? Also, is there anyway to remove firmware or get BOOT as the version once you’ve flashed with newer firmware? Note I’ve never checked what firmware it was using before it seemingly broke so I don’t know what it was originally.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
