How do I update the firmware version & what is the latest? mine is A104. I don't seem to be able to find any reference to it on the LG site

to update the firmware you have to flash the chip on the drive which can if it goes wrong render the drive useless.if there is nothing wrong with it leave it alone.if you are wanting to make it region free or upgrade it because of problems put the model number and firmware into google and do a search or try click here they have some good links.darren

Latest firmware version is A301.

If you download the package there is a txt file that tells you how to install and declines any responsibility should things go wrong. Basically the drive needs to be set as Master on IDE2, with nothing else connected on that drive.

I'm not surprised you couldn't find it; their site is a nightmare!
