Hi, it's been many moons since I last posted about this, but my drive was mostly working so I didn't worry about it. Here's my original thread: http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/tm.asp?m=137129

I am wondering how to flash my drive. I tried the link given, but I couldn't quite make sense of it. It extracted two .exe's to my desktop and after trying one of them it said I needed to reboot, so after rebooting nothing happened and it just keeps giving me the same message. I'm probably just going to go buy a new drive, but am wondering if  I am flashing it right. It still plays dvds, just won't burn them.

Thank you for all the help,

Can you try the drive on another PC?  A friend/neighbor's PC?  If it told you to reboot, you probably did the flash right.  Does it recognize the blank media?  You can verify you have the latest firmware with this tool.

 Hey thanks for the help, but I just went ahead and got a new, tight Lg w/lightscribe, so I think my chores are done.

Thanks again,
