Do I need to update my CD-RW drive?

Im using NERO burning rom with a 99 min CD and it failed to copy. I heard you have to update the firmware of your driver. is that true. My Cd driver is LG/Goldstar CED-8120B.

AFAIK you cannot unless you have 'special' 99 minute here

Your drive is capable of writing 99 minute CDs click here

You need Nero 5.5 or above to write more than 80 mins.

I'd go with the firmware upgrade as the very LAST resort - if it goes wrong you'll be left with a dead & unrepairable drive.

You have to have the 99min discs...didn't I just say that? ;-)) You do not need a firmware upgrade...just the discs. Judging by all the problems that can occur it would appear to be a task destined for limited success.
