    that firmware (if I'm reading it right) is to correct the problem of the drive not reading a dvd. My drive can read & record dvd's, it just can't "see" any (blank or recorded) cd's.

    I would try the firmware update but also have you tried a different brand of cd's? Does the drive read game or application cd's like installing programs?
