I'm assuming you rebooted the computer, yes? If the drive still doesn't open after reboot then try the emergency eject hole. There should be a tiny hole on the faceplate, stick a pin or something similar inside and pray the tray opens. If not, you may have somehow damaged the drive permanently by upgrading the firmware. The other option would be to call CyberDrive's tech support; they may know something you don't about the tray not opening.

There is always the risk of damaging the drive when upgrading firmware, that is why there is a huge WARNING sign posted in the Readme of any firmware patch. How or why the firmware upgrade affected your tray, I have no idea, but I suppose anything is possible.

this is the 2 readme files of the firmware:

(cw058d important information.txt)

1. If you cannot finish the update under your Windows OS and you get an error message, then you must update the firmware under real MS-Dos.
Therefore you need Boot-Disc, which you can create under Dos or Windows. Please read the chapter of "Create a Boot-Floppy-Disc" in your Microsoft Operating system manual or contact Microsoft directly.

2. If you have further problems after doing the update, please check the following points first:

A) Is DMA activated for our drive? (device manager/CD-ROM/CW058D/settings)
DMA must be activated. Further details on this subject are described in the manual of your mainboard.

B) Does your OS show the drive's updated firmware version? The firmware version of your drive is shown in Nero or in device manager/CD-ROM/CW088D/settings in the upper right corner.

In addition to Nero 5.5, Clone CD (from version on) can be installed. These programs are compatible to each other.

3. Updates and technical support for non-Cyber Drive products can be obtained under

Where did you download the firmware from? Look at the page for a warning. Case in point, Firmware-Flash.com's page for CyberDrive:

Sometimes, may need to actually turn the computer off for a minute or so and then turn it back on after flashing the firmware. Have you tried this?
