Mh, looks okay.

Could you test the drive in another computer?

I’ve been trying to change the cable and testing my DVD to another computer but always the same result: Can’t recognise CD and CD/RW, just blinking lamp then off

Sounds bad for the cd part.

Maybe you could try to clean the drive/lens.

Could you to tell me about software that can erase the firmware?

try to reflash in safe mode

Still can’t solve the problem…but if checked with K-Probe, just an error F/W
