I had a simiar problem(http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=143677#post1061176)as u can see but i fixed it in a way better way.
First go here(http://dhc014.rpc1.org/indexOEM.htm)and look for ur burner, if u can't find it there then try this site(http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html). Download the latest unscrambled firmware. IF the Binary is newer and u want that then u would have to go to (http://dhc014.rpc1.org/howto.htm)./[B]THIS SECTION FOR LITEON DRIVES ONLY.[/B] If u have liteon then download the LtnFW file. After this, open the file and search for the firmware that u just got, open it. and click update.
/\ note if u dont have a liteon drive i strongly suggest u just use the windows file instead of the binary because it gets a little hard from here If u don't have a liteon drive then dl the mtkflash, i didnt need to use this file being that my drive was liteon. For further insturctions go to the How to flash your drive with mtkflash at the bottom of the page of where u got the program and go from there.
[B]THATS IT UR DONE, BUT IF U WANT BETTER RESULTS, OR IF IT STILL DOESN'T WORK[ /B], go to (http://codeguys.rpc1.org/patchers.html) download the OmniPatcher, load the firmware that u downloaded and go to the dvd media support tab and click on apply recomended media tweaks, then go to the general patches tab and set the all speeds to the fastest and click the checkbox fix the dead drive blink(WANING THIS IS CROSS-FLASHING*)and anything else u would like. Then save and load the flashing program(previously used) and now update once more.
CONGRATS, UR BURNER SHOULD WORK BY NOW, if it doesn't i may still be able to help. Now if doesn't work u can still try going to the drive id tab in the omnipatcher and change the id and go back to one of the sites i gave u earlier and download the bin for that and try this all over. Hope this helps, if it does to anyone let me know.
*cross-flashing is not supported or condoned by the drive manufacturer, proceed at ur own risk! :iagree:
