I have a "Super Multi DVD Drive" (so it proudly says on the manual cover) i.e. an LG GSA-4163B CD/DVD Rewriter and I'm trying to do a firmware update from this site :click hereThe manual tells me that the drive came with ROM Version A102 and the LG site mentioned talks about version A102, A103, A104 and A105.Do I HAVE to use Version A102 or is it safe to use Version A105?Cheers.
Why are you undating the firmware?As they say, "if it 'en't broke, don't fix it"
Updating, not undating.....
You're right, it ain't broke and works just fine. I'm thinking of updating it for the same reason that we're always told to update our graphics drivers for example; I thought updating might "improve" it in some way.Maybe I shouldn't bother???
No real need to.... I only intend to update drivers for my hardware if there is a problem, that is pointing me to a driver error.... Any other time, I think "the hell with it.... It's working..."
Most firmware updates simply allow for the drive accepting more brands of disks, sometimes (rarely) they give you added speed and burn functionality, read the literature very carefully.
You're probably right - the site mentions these improvements :Improvement of recording quality for DVD+R and DVD-RWAddition of new DVD codesDVD-R: Optodisc(OPTODISCR016), Prodisc(ProdiscF02), Ritek(RITEKM16)DVD+R: UME Disc(AML 002 0), DAXON(DAXON AZ3 0)To me the recording quality is just fine and I probably don't need any new DVD codes, or not just yet anyway. Most important of all I don't fancy risking buggering up a perfectly good DVD Writer.
updating firmware is not a good idea unless you are having problems an incorrect update can ruin your drive
OK - thanks guys.Think I'll just leave it as it is.
