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

Is there anyway to make my dvd burner recognize and utilize the blank Memorex dvds i got for xmas?


Assuming that everything has been working properly so far, try updating the firmware on your DVD burner to see if that resolves the problem. If that doesn't work, your software may be out of date, see if there is an update or get a newer version for it.

I Have A NEC ND-3540A DVD+R/RW Dual Layer Burner, It would not burn on a +R DVD What should I do


First thing to try would be a different brand of disc, there is never any guarantee with which brand of disc working with any specific DVD writer.

If you have tried different brands of disc and the DVD +R still does not work, I would reccomend visiting the manufacturer's website and downloading a firmware update for you specific DVD drive.

Note: Be very careful updating the firmware on the DVD drive, if the wrong firmware is used - or the firmware process not done correctly you can damage your DVD drive.

Problem with DVD + R


If your product was made before july 2007 you could try the firmware offered here on the lite-on website. Download the firmware zip file and extract then run the exe file inside.

Cannot play disks


There are 2 lasers, one for CD and one for DVD. Most likely, your DVD laser is not working right. The new firmware update only supported more media: http://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/7669/ (link to update and details) DVD burners are cheap now a days (I just got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40 at CompUSA...Who is also going out of business)
