SOURCE: No firmware update available
why do you want or need a firmware update ?
if the drive is functioning correctly, it,s best to leave it alone.
Flashing a drive with firmware, can lead to an unusable drive. if you get a corrupt file-bad flash or power cut. you,ll have a pretty paperweight.

I downloaded the LG Mobile Support Tool at http://www.51spsoft.com/Download.asp?ID=34522, which easily downloaded and installed the right firmware for me.

Yikes, it sounds like somehow corrupted firmware got loaded on there, or the firmware didn't fully get loaded on. At this point there is really not much you can do aside from contact Samsung and they will guide you in the right direction for how to send in the sound bar to them to have them replace the ROM chip with one with fixed firmware. I'm so sorry but that is the only option you have at this point. Make sure you stress to them that it indicated it loaded correctly and you got the firmware from their site (hopefully you did) but somehow it must have been corrupted. They will fix the issue for you. Call them at 800-726-7864.

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 you
