I'm new to the forum but desperately need some experienced help.
I have an OEM Mecer BCO 5232IM Combo which has been struggling to read some DVD's so I checked the firmware version - it was 0054.
Found the combo on this website and the latest firmware available was 0059.
Anyway I disconnected my other drive from my system and proceeded with the flashing upgrade. The upgrade I downloaded was MCU Flash, Version 2.73. for IDE 5232CO. The DEVICE REVISION identified when I opened the software was 0054. The procedure appeared to run fine but when it completed the DEVICE REVISION showed BOOT. I was asked to restart my computer , which I did but my Combo was dead.
The green light flashed when my computer was booting up, the Combo was still recognised both in My Computer and when I went into the Device Manager.
But it will not eject or do anything. Stone dead.
Can someone please give me something to try, I am sure I will be looking for a New optical Drive - pity as this one is only 1 month old.
