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

I have a LG DVD writer Model GSA H55N in my PC but DVD drive can't read CD while the DVD has read.


First make sure the lens is clean (use optical lens cleaners), then try updating the firmware here

If that fails, then the laser head may well be dying. Cheaper to replace than repair.

Lost all software and drivers. Need the the installation CD?


If you registered the product then you probably can download than from LG site or ask for them. If not then you have to obtain that from someone that have it.
However you don't need drivers for that.
As a burning software there are free solutions available like CDBurnerXP. I don't knwo what other software was on the CD but you can almost always substitute that with free software that is available on the Internet.

Lightscribe?


The 'anser' is no. LG model numbers for DVD writers that support Lightscribe end with an "L"; e.g. GSA-H42L.

LG GSA 4082B


You shouldn't need drivers. The only thing you can update on your drive would be the firmware. What exactly are you trying to do? If you're talking about burning music/videos/data then you need programs such as nero. Which comes free with most CD/DVDRW's now.
