Samsung DVD-ReWriter Firmware. Problem.

  Demora 10:55 05 Jun 2008

Hi. I have a Samsung DVD-ReWriter model SH-S203p.

I need to update the firmware becasue its not working properly. ie I turn the pc on. Drive lights up but never goes off and I cannot access the drive at all.

I can't even open the drawer. Now I have tried updating from the special link on the samsung cd to no avail. I need to download this firmware manually as my internet conection istn't good enough. Tried to use it and it just hangs on the site. click here

Any help would be useful.

Firstly, are you sure its a firmware issue?
Have you tried removing all leads to and from the drive and reinstalling them again?
Are the leads in the right way around? (Dont laugh, I've seen it!)
Have you tried the data cable (IDE/SATA) in a different slot on the motherboard?
Have you used a different data cable?
Have you used a different molex power connector (not one with FAN ONLY marked on it?
