Go here:

Up to version 020 there and even has an auto region reset.
There is a 033 floating around but it might not work for your drive unless it's a Sony OEM type.

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 :
> Location = North America > USA/ Canada
> 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

I get a please insert the correct DVD-ROM when I try to play the Ironman & Hulk pc game

first of all, is this game running from your harddrive or the dvd rom??? if u are running from the harddrive, then you will need a application to make the os think is running from a dvd rom drive, this is typical when the game is downloaded. if u have the original dvd disk, then your firmware of the dvd rom may need to be updated, or most likely theres an issue with the firmware, and you might need to purchase and up to date dvd rom.

Dell Dimension 2350 DVD/CD Rom Drivers


According to the info in your post, here a firmware update for you drive from Dells site. This assumes that you have xp as listed on dells site.

If you do not have xp, you can look at the service tag on the side of your machine (it should be 7 digits). After you have that you can enter it here

After you get that info you should have a screen that list the different components of your system. You will want to click the + beside CD/DVD. Then you will want to look for your model number that you listed above and dowload wants available for it.

It usually automatially installs and corrects the issue but if not you may want to open the device manager by clicking Start > Run and typing devmgmt.msc. This willl take you to the Device Manager. Open the DVD/CD section and right click the drive listed above and choose Remove or Uninstall. After it disappears, restart the machine and install the firmware update that was downloaded earlier.

DVD Burner not recognizing blank dvd's of any type

I had the same problem with my Phillips DVD-R drive and FIRMWARE fixed it; but, it seems that Dell’s OEM version of FIRMWARE is not fixing your problem.
I just wanted to remind you to try LG version 1.05 but, it seems from the buzz on the internet that 4164B is having a lot of problems; you also might want to look into Dell’s version E112 rather than E113.
Try this before the firmware update:
2 – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE; SYSTEM; CurrentControlSet; Control; Class.
3 - {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
4 - After clicking this registry key, look at the top line entry in the right window pane. It should be default with a data value of DVD/CD-ROM drives. If it’s anything else, you have the wrong key and you need to check the next entry. Typically the optical drive is the first registry key.
5 - On the right side of the window, right-click LowerFilters and choose modify data from the pop-up window.
6 - Add Sonic's filter by typing PxHelp20 into the dialogue box and clicking OK.

You might want to see if they will move you to the 4166B; if you have it replaced again: or if you are sick of LG the SONY DRU-810A should fit.
