Ways to recover from bad bios flash?

Hi, I’m new to this forum. From the title, u can see that I’m trying to recover from a bad DVD bios flash. The drive is a Samsung SD 616Q F401 DVD rom. I used mtkflash to flash it with a bios I downloaded from etna. But met a problem and the DVD is unusable now and tried to reflash with original F401 bios but its still useless. Is there anyway to recover from a bad flash? I’ve tried reflashing with Sfdndos.exe from Samsung with the original F401 bios too but it gives the following error message.

“ERR FAIL TO ALLOCATE MEMORY”

So, I’m now stuck with a useless drive.

Please help if possible

Thanks and regards :confused:

Try this or this

Yes, they are for Lite-On drives, but when you’re desperate, you’ll try anything. But look on the bright side, if your Samsung’s dead, you can always pick up a Lite-On.:bigsmile:
