Re: firmware upgrade

First, try to uninstall the frimware from the add remove programs (Control panel). If it wont help, uninstall the driver and remoe the device (right click on 'my computer' - properties - hardware - device manager)restart the machine and let Windows redetect it. It should have retained the driver and will reload it. Good luck!

I got the old 407291 software version on my machine and would like to upgrade my firmware, but LG says : Contact your dealer --- Please help


You can download any available ODD (Optical Disc Drive) updates from http://us.lgservice.com. Click Product Support, click Optical, choose your model number from the list, and click go. Click the Drivers & Software tab. Download the latest version posted (highest number).The firmware for all recent drives works with Windows. Before running the update, make sure the drive is empty. Close as many programs running the background as you can. Run the downloaded executable file to start the update. Some will automatically start updating the dive and some will require you to push "Upgrade" or "Start". If the firmware doesn't see the drive it was designed for, it will not install.
WARNING: Never update the firmware if the problem you're having is the drive isn't seen by windows, won't write with the included software, or other interface related problems. Unless the firmware specifically states it fixes the problem you are having, firmware updates normally don't fix these types of problems. Trying to update the firmware when there are interface problems can damage the drive's firmware. An error when updating the firmware is usually caused by a problem with the drive interface or there is more than one drive connected to that IDE channel.
IMPORTANT: do not interfere with the drive during the firmware update. If an error occurs during the upgrade process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage to the drive can occur. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact our LG customer support line toll-free at 1-800-243-0000.
hope this helps

if so it's gone corrupt...if u have the backup of the original firmware...then FLASH the BIOS with that...else u may have to change the BIOS chipset....but that may be a tricky issue as the chip is fixed in the motherboard....
Cardinal Rule 1
NEVER UPGRADE / NEVER MAKE ANY CHANGES TO UR FIRMWARE ON ANY HARDWARE.....THE HARDWARES ARE MFG TO AND FIRMWARES ARE INSTALLED TO WORK THE WAY THEY ARE MADE...99.99% of the people who made changes to the firmware on any of their hardwares....have always faced issues later with the hardware...

Rule 2,
Always take a backup of the original Firmware if u can else dont venture into this complicated issue...

Hi, I have LG GSA-H55N for over 1 year. Recently, it cannot read from CD, whenever I inserts CD, My PC shows that no CD inserted. But for DVD it can read and write successfuly


try to re-install the driver, if it can read DVD's means that your optic lens are ok and the mechanical parts are fine,it is just the software problem, Re-install your driver

Hello!

Are you do firmware?
In most case when I do firmware upgrade with pioneer DVD, I can´t fix the problem.
Now you have trouble with chip on your DVD burner, the best solution is bay another, because you can´t try again firmware upgrade.
Only what you can do with dvd or cd rom is cleaning or change a laser, but you have diferent trouble.

Samsung 22x Super Writemaster SH-S223F not reading any disc


im having the same problem with this drive and samsung has not helped at all. i cant even upgrade the firmware because the automatic upgrade program that upgrades the firmware comes up with a warning window right off the start, but the window is the wrong size for the text and you cant quite see the OK button or click on it to continue. just a reflection of samsung quality. nothing but garbage. to me samsung is just a big scam. once they have your money, thats it , 0 support. oh well you got me again samsung, my fault. ill just throw this drive on the pile of samsung.
