Hello All, Recently I had some interesting things happening on my PC and one of those was a HD that crashed and along with that come some problems with a NEC DVD-Rw that I own. After the crash I cleared the that HD and rewrote the 1,0's to the HD and it works fine. But to the purpose of this thread, when I hooked up my NEC drive I noticed the green light would come on and stay on. A few things that it is doing: 1.Light stays on right at boot up- Even with the IDE disconnected the light remains on at all time with just power and does not respond? 2.My Bios does not even read the drive itself? 3.Because of 1 and 2 I cant even reset the firmware because windows cant even pick up the drive due to the Bios. I have taken the drive apart to make sure that nothing was jammed or nothing was burned out on it. Everything looks brand new other than a little dust I cleared away. I used the drive a lot until the crash and so I went out and bought a new LG DVD burner and that was a mistake, it also has to be sent in for exchange ( I got them to do an upgrade on it). But I was wondering if their is someway to do a hard reset on the drive itself with just power connected to it or without power. If I can just get it to be read as anything I can at least get in and reset the firmware. Any help will do, Thanks.
