Windows wont start after A091 update on Emprex 1016 drive

i just installed the A091 flash firmware update on my Emprex 1016 dvdrw drive and it all seemed to go ok until i restarted as requested. upon restarting my computer failed to load past the xp screen where the green bar flashed horizontially across the loading screen. after unsuccessfully retrying a couple of times i decidided to disconnect the drive at the IDE cable and was able to log on, minus the drive. i reconnected it but im able to get no response at all. i would be really grateful if anyone could help me fix this…i just hope the drive isnt scrap now!
