CD Writer problem

hi.  i'm having a problem with my cd writer, it's a YAMAHA CRW3200E.  what happened was that, i was doing a firmware upgrade, and after i did that, the drive started malfunctioning.  when i put a CD in the drive, it shows null information.  when i open the drive, it does open, but it doesn't show any information.  i'm thinking it's the firmware that's causing this because after i updated the firmware, the cd writer started giving problems.  

so what do you guys suggest.  how can i get a workaround this.  if this is a firmware upgrade problem, how would i be able to revert back to my previous firmware.  thanks for the help in advance.

which operating system are you on?  Are you on firmware version D?

Use the same process to revert the firmware back: get a binary of the original version and flash it to the drive.

Where did you get the binary to modify it?  The same location usually has more than one version.  Hopefully, you remember what the original version was; if not, it's usually printed somewhere on the drive itself.
