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 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

I have a DVD duplicator 2057 and when I burn a cd, it won't play in the car, but the original works fine. Both discs are the same and I have tried 10 time and all failed. I even used DAO and TAO, still...


If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule the task on restart then defragment your hard drive

hope this helps

Dvd takes forever to burn on my dvd drive and I use nero as the burn software either the burn process fails or it take around 10 hours to burn a dvd at 16x

I would recommend trying a firmware update on the drive. What type of computer do you have? For example, HP has specific updates for drives at Otherwise, go to and go to drives/downloads and search for what is called a "firmware driver" (firmware is software on the drive that will help it to either work better, or confirm you have a defective DVD drive.)

On boot the message "copier f/w fail please update fw" appears.

I have flashed just 1 DVD drive, years ago. It was easy when you knew the trick. The download site should have told you how. You must get the firmware to read and remember the update flash.

That said, I stopped flashing firmware long ago. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I was given this info and I pass it on. Lots of folks update, upgrade and flash their way to real trouble.

Burning dvd image using Roxio disc copier

burning dvd images using roxio really does wonders. however, when you trying burning it to your physical dvdrom, it fails. this may be due to firmware bugs or needs some fixes. have it updated to the lastest firmware update and regularly clean your vdvroms lens with a cleaning kit.

so how is it now?

You just answered your question......."all drivers I assume present and ok" update your old are the drivers for WIN98? how old are the drivers for XP. These are relevant to having the correct drivers for the correct operating system. The benefit for you is that you are running to operating systems seperately on two drives or am I mistaken. They need an update on the drivers for each OS and not a firmware update one is hardware the other is software? Your problem is the software.
