My NEC has stopped working during a flashing gone bad. Need help fixing it. It just flashes its green light. Anyone know a fix.

Did you try reflashing using the DOS method?
I've never had great success with the window's based flash updaters.

You download a DOS flash utitility for your drive and the firmware you want to use, put that onto a bootable floppy and then boot off the disc and use the DOS flasher.

For the 1300a I recommend you check out: http://www.herrie.org/

It contains some flash utilities and hacked/modified firmwares for the 1300a which will make it more compatible with new media and remove the 2x ripping speed limit.

I'm using version 1.07 cause I had issues with 1.08 & 1.09 recognizing Ritek media. Version 1.07 has worked great for me.

You can get it from the link posted above.
Other firmware can be found at www.rpc1.org
