I have a v59 Hitachi flashed with hacked firmware, it has worked fine for about 1 year but now when i insert an disc CD/DVD orig or backup it displays "Reading" for 2 seconds then goes to "Open Tray". I have taken the drive apart and tried cleaning the laser but it has made no difference.
Is this drive completely useless now or is there anything I can try to get it working again.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have also tried the mod involving adding a small piece of plastic to the laser unit to push the switch.
Do the pot calirbation for the laser, search for it on google or check the forum, was answered like 4 times in the last 2 days...
