    I tried updating my Memorex True 8x DVD burner's firmware but accidently used the firmware for True 8xn, now the drive won't play, burn or even recognize cd-r's or cd-roms! I have tried flashing it with the correct firmware but the program says available target not found. Is there a way to do this or am I screwed?

    sorry, as far as i know you are screwed.

    in my experience, if you use the wrong firmware with a drive and it malfunctions it is probably toast. that is why there are a number of warnings about flashing drives that pop up before you complete the flash.

    Yes, I know that there are warnings but accidents happen, plus no such pop-up popped up.
    And it isn't exactly toast, it still plays and burns DVD's and plays standard audio cd's, it just hangs up on cd-roms and cd-r's.

    Anyone else have some advice?

    contact the manufacturer, if anyone has an answer it'd be them right.
    let us know either way, i'm curious
