I have upgraded my 451S burner with the 832S firmware with the hopes of being able to burn dual-layer discs. The flasher said that the flash was successful and asked me to reboot my PC. When I rebooted my PC into XP, the ‘new hardware found’ icon popped up in the system tray with a bubble that said ‘CD-ROM Drive’ and after about 30 seconds my computer automatically rebooted. It has been doing this repeatedly. Have I fucked up my drive? How 'bout my Windows install? I’m really scared right now, guys. Anything you could do to help would be very much appreciated.
Update: It appears that the drive is able to read CDs fine under Linux. Hopefully this is a good sign!
