Re: firmware update problem (SH-W162C)
You need to insert the Windows CD install disk in the DVD drive and reboot the computer. Let the Windows CD boot up and allow it to go through the motion till you reach the end . It will ask what you intend doing? your answer is to press R for "Console" do this and you will see the Command line just like the old DOS CMD line. Type chkdsk let the computer repair itself take the disk out and hey presto! Your alive again.

I also found this: This optical drive is a Plug 'n Play device in Windows OS's. The only
requirement is connection to a WORKING SATA controller. Check in Device
Manager to insure the sata controller is working/enabled and you
shouldn't have any problem. Windows will auto-detect / auto-install the
drive without user intervention once this condition has been met.
Additionally, you will need 3rd. party recording and dvd decoding
software in order to use all the functions this drive was built to
perform, ie: play dvd movie disks and record to dvd and cd-rw disks.
Windows is sorta limited on what all it will support.... that's the
reason for the additional 3rd. party software like Nero or Roxio and
PowerDVD or WinDVD.

Sounds like you have done all you possibly can, it may well be that the drive has finally given up and a replacement is neccasary.
You can try to repair the autorun .inf file, but i think a replacement.
