I tried to update the firmware on my CDRW - LTR 40125W but it came up with some sort of error saying the firmware I downloaded wasn't right. That was yesterday.
I've just noticed that when I open 'My Computer' both my CDRW & DVD drives are missing. So went into Device Manager and had a look to see if they were there and they are but with a red cross through both of them. So I looked under properties for both and they both said the same thing:-
This device is disabled. (Code 22)
Click Enable Device to enable this device.
So I clicked enable but it said 'Windows was not able to enable this device'
Then I restated my computer and went into the BIOS and it does see both my CDRW & my DVD drive. I have also tried to play a game where it reads the cd before it loads and it didn't try to read the cd. There are no lights on either drive and they open & close fine. I've tried to update the firmware again with WS08 and it comes up with 'Error no Drive Detected!'
I am using Windows XP and a Gigabyte GA7VRXP mobo.
Has a bad flash occured, is there any way I can fix it?
