Default Incorrect firmware update

sponsored links

Hi all,

I'm using internel ASUS CDR-5232A4 in an external casing via USB and I tried to update the firmware with the newer one 1.01 The firmware update did not complete and the laptop shutdown after 2 hours.

Since then the drive is not detected in
-usb casing
-win xp sp2
-even bios setup of another desktop pc when connected on IDE

Normal working of the drive: Power on > Led blinking > Led blinking stops > detected by the OS/Bios

Current state: Power on > Led blinking and blinking continously Even eject button is not working

Is there any chance for this to work again. I have the CD containing the firmware 1.0, but I do not know how to flash this since it is not being detected even in bios. Is there any heavenly jumpers inside to reset or something.

Thanks a million

The only thing i can think of is to connect the drive up as an internal drive in another comp, and run the f'ware update from DOS.

Thank you in advance for pushing this troubleshoot.
