    Hi a little sketchy on detail.What model version/firmware version is the drive.Did you backup the firmware onto your pc/laptop before you tried to flash.Are you using the burnermax flash program?If so is the drive still being recognised within the burnermax flash utilty.If so you may find a orginal.bin file for your drive online if you dont have it and reflash back to stock.

    Yeah, you may have bricked it. I'm pretty sure when c4eva first release the burnermax firmware, he mentioned to be very careful during the actual flashing process, because you could brick the burner. I haven't looked into it though, so someone may have found a repair method by now.

    try to see if you can find the original firmware to see if you can unbrick it,but the chances are slim
