i have a qsi cdrw/dvd 242 in my clevo laptop. the dvd drive was not working, however the cd was working just fine. i went online and found that other people had the same problems with the internal drive and upon investigation, i ended up downloading a generic firmware update, i think it was ux56. anyways now the drive does not read anything, it spins the cd for a bit then stops completely and i cannot pick it up on my computer. i don't know how to look for the original firmware, i don't know if a system restore at an earlier point would work, being a novice at this i am hesitating to do a restore to a prior point. is the drive dead for good or can it be worked on.
