    Hello,

    I recently tried to update my DVD+/-RW's firmware and had a major problem, causing me to reformat my hard drive and for some reason, i cannot load windows with it connected.

    Please, I really need your help so i will give you as much information as possible.

    My Main problem is... I can't even update the firmware again since windows wont load if its connected. Thanks for any possible help.

    That's a tough situation boss. A bad flash is definitely bad news. If you can, you might plug it into another PC, do a Hail Mary and hope it boots. If it does then you have a chance to try a reflash.
