Where can i find firmware updates for LG GSA-4163B dual layer burner - believe it to be A106


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

My Presario CQ61 has changed DVD zones the maximum number of times allowed. It is now set to a zone that prohibits me playing anything from Australia.


Copied from somwhere else...

I came across a web site called DVDRhelp.com which tells how to reset the region codes for software DVD players.
http://www.dvdrhelp.com/play
" Q: How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also 'patch' your DVD drives firmware, you can also try a patched DVD drive firmware (it is freeware, but may be a bit tricky and 'dangerous').
http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm
http://forum.firmware-flash.com/dl_all.php
Q: How do I make WinDVD,PowerDVD,Win2k region free?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your software player region free. Or use DVD Genie (freeware) to make your software DVD Player region free.
http://www.inmatrix.com/files/dvdgenie_download.html "
Side note: firmware is "miniature" software which runs an electronic device. Some electronic devices have updatable firmware that can be downloaded from the manufacturer's web site and re-programmed into the device. This is referred to as flashing the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) or EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). A word of warning: if a firmware upgrade is interrupted due to a power outage or computer freezeup, the device may cease to function.

My samsung dvd writer is reading cds but not dvds what should i do


Caution: Samsung is not responsable for problems during the firmware upgrade.
When you encounter problems during the upgrade, please contact a Samsung Service Center.
If your drive is still in warranty please contact your retailer first. When you upgrade your firmware, please check the "Buyer" on your label of drive.
If you upgrade wrong firmware, you will have a problem in operating.
ex) SM-332B/*** 63BT123456 F/W=T403(***=Buyer)
■■ How to upgrade firmware ■■ 1. Download the attached "Bin file(firmware)" and "Sfdnwin.exe file(download
program)" into a temporary folder. 2. When you run "Sfdnwin.exe", Pop-up window will appear. you can see your ROM-
drive(s) in the Pop-up window.
Then choose the drive whose firmware you want to upgrade.
ex)Drive:SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SM-332B/T403 3. You will see three icons on the top from left.
If you click the first icon from left, you can see "Investigation window" then open
the firmware file that you already downloaded to the temporary folder. 4. You will see the message" Ready" after finding the firmware file that you want.
Then click the middle icon on the top of left. Then your firmware will be upgraded
automatically. 5. When you finish upgrading firmware , reboot your pc automatically.
■■Sfdnwin.exe : A program which can make your drive download our firmware(s) in Windows.
(It's for only Windows)
I had the same exact problem and thought the ROM was broke but it still played CD's. It's funny because when the problem started I thought I had really messed something up, and it turns out there are massive forums like these for the exact same problems. I hope I can ease a few minds w/ this. I'm running Windows XP, 1G ram, 100GHD.

Region hack for Alba DS-5711


How to bypass DVD region code protection ?

As we've said, a lot of newer drives are RPC-2 drives these days. Some of these drives don't allow raw access to the drive until the drive firmware has done a regioncheck. But some RPC-2 drives DO allow raw access, so in some cases it is quite possible to use a special software to bypass the protection:

The first solution is free VideoLAN player: click here to download VideoLAN. It might take a long time to initialize DVD. So just pop the disc in your drive and try it out, while you get a coffee.

The second solution is free Remote Selector tool: click here to download Remote Selector. Launch remselec22.exe file. Click Control tab. Choose Enabled, and check all options Region Free, Disable Macrovision, Disable User Prohibition as shown below:

3c60efd.gif


Click Start Player button, and try to play your DVD.



How to change DVD region ?

The region can only be changed five times, before its set permanently.

In WinDVD: if a DVD from a region different than the default one is tried to be played, the dialog box for changing the DVD region code should appear. If that dialog box do not appear, check the region code set in the software:
Click Start, All Programs, Intervideo Win DVD, and Intervideo Win DVD.
Right-click the Win DVD window and select Setup or Properties.
Click the Region tab and check the region code selected.
If there is a 0 in the Changes Until Permanent field, the DVD region code will not be able to be changed again.
If a number from 1 to 4 appears in the Changes Until Permanent field, add a mark in the checkbox of the desired region and click OK. The new region will be set up.

In PowerDVD: the first time you insert a DVD title, to be played on PowerDVD, a small dialogue box will appear. It will set the region code to match that of the DVD title you wish to play. After this the program will be set. However, if you have a region free DVD-ROM drive, you have the option of playing DVD titles from different regions. PowerDVD will allow you to change the region code setting up to five times, and then it will be locked on the region you have listed on your fifth and last change. At that point you will only be allowed to watch DVD titles from that region. To change the region code, from the original setting, just insert the DVD title in your DVD-ROM drive and run PowerDVD. When the software recognizes that the disc is from a different region than what was previously set, a dialogue box will appear. For this example, the Current Region is Region 1. After changing from one region to another, I will have four changes left. The program detected the disc I inserted was from Region 2, so it selected this option. Once I click OK the Current Region will be changed to Region 2 and the DVD title will play.



How to make DVD-ROM region free ?

If your drive is locked, DVD doesn't play and you can't change region code or bypass protection using described methods, then the last & only working solution is to "patch" your DVD-ROM drive, and replace hardware region code protection mechanism. It's a dangerous method, which can be used only by PC professionals.

If you live in the USA or Canada (R1) then you most likely won't need the ability to play DVDs from other regions, unless you are interested in some of the rare titles that are out in Europe (R2) but not in the USA. If you live in Europe and you prefer to watch the movies in English then most likely you have to flash your firmware (in order to buy American DVDs).

Load another firmware which disables the region code protection. This is ONLY for advanced users!

Step 1. If you're unsure about the type of the drive I suggest you run driveinfo.
Download DriveInfo program from this page: http://www.remoteselector.com/driveinfo.htm

In case of ASPI error you have to install forceaspi first. Here's download link with instructions on how to install it: http://force_aspi_18.w.interia.pl/. After installing forceaspi you have to reboot your machine. Driveinfo will show you the type of your DVD drive as well as the current firmware, and whether or not the drive is regionfree. If driveinfo tells you the drive has no region protection of course you don't have to do anything.

Step 2. After you determine the type of your firmware you should download _EXACT_ version of patched firmware. Go here: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php and check if there's an updated firmware for your type of DVD drive. This step is really crucial! Double or triple check that you have the right firmware, otherwise your drive might not work after flashing anymore (and unfortunately there are flash programs that allow you to load the wrong firmware). Bad flashing could destroy your drive definitively. Read carefully the installation notes of your firmware before you upgrade. The Firmware Page and the drive manufacturer can't be responsible. AND REMEMBER: This is at your own risk.

Step 3. After you've downloaded the right firmware you'll have to create a Windows bootdisk. You can format a disk and check "copy system files" and you'll get a working bootdisk. Then copy the flasher program and the firmware to the disc as well. Then reboot your pc and change the boot drive order if necessary so that your pc boots from the disk drive. Since every BIOS looks different I can't tell you where to change the boot order. Please refer to the manual of your mainboard / pc or call customer support.

Step 4. After rebooting run the flasher. Then the program will search for a DVD-ROM and ask you if you want to flash. Type yes, wait until the program has finished, then reboot your pc. Once back in Windows run driveinfo again. If everything has gone as it's supposed to that's what you're supposed to get. Enjoy.. you've just beaten the DVD-ROM Hardware region-protection system.

NOTE: Before you buy a DVD-ROM make sure that there's RPC-1 firmware for it on this site: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php.

You should be aware that in some cases the warranty might become void if you mess around with your drive on your own. Here are additional useful tips: The DVD-ROM Firmware Flashing FAQ

Hi!, my HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4320 can not read any DVD disk so I want to upgrade the firmware but I haven't got any firmware of its.


look to the manufacture of the produce - email them, call ect. they might not release a firmware. if you cant read ANY dvds right now your drive might have an issue with the laser- has nothing to do with firmware. replacment dvd drives run like 20$ now so your not out much.

I have a lg DVD-RAM Model no GH22NP20 its not run data cds & DVD-RAM.


need to check firmware version then update it

Here's how to get LG's Auto Firmware Updater
Go here :
http://www.lge.com/support/software.jsp
Select
> Location = North America > USA/ Canada
Then
> Product = DVD-ROM (writer)
> Operating System = Vista
> Subject = LG Auto Firmware Download


Download the .zip file to your Desktop
You'll need to "Extract All" from the .zip
and then run the setup file
You'll need to allow Internet Access ( AV/IS )
The Updater will probably need to Update itself - before being active


To Manually Search For Firmware Updates
> Product = DVD-ROM (writer)
> Operating System = Vista
> Subject = Firmware

Look through the Listings for your Specific Drive
I would recommend Disabling the LG Auto Firmware Updater
- from Windows Start-up
You can open the Updater at any time - from All Programs
