Tried to OC an LG CED-8083B 4/4/32X to an CED-8080B 8/4/32X.

The firmware was transferred to the drive but the verification failed and then the drive was dead.

Not detected by the bios, the tray doesn't open......completely dead.

The drive came shipped with a HP pavilion 8670 computer.

THIS DRIVE IS NOT OC ABLE!!!!! DO NOT TRY TO OC IT!!!!!!

Yeah, it was just an old 4X drive anyway......but still a bit disappointing that it's now completely dead.
