Hi, you installed driver or firmware ?
Can you give me a link to what you downloaded.

Note: Users with LaCie DVD LightScribe drives with “IDE-DVD DVDRW8651” drive signature must also update to the latest DVD drive firmware and latest bridge firmware.
Please download the following items:
DVDRW8651 DVD drive Firmware LT25
LaCie Device Updater 4.0.5 for Windows 2000 or XP

I picked up this update from the LACIE website DVD Drivers.

When you flashed the firmware did it give you an option to save old firmware ? If you try to flash again does the updater see the drive ? if it dose flash it again.
I don't have that drive so I can't experiment, usally a flash gone bad can at times (not always) be repaired on IDE drives...but I don't know about external drives

Thank you for your help. I spoke to Lacie today and they ask me to send the unit back for repair.
