Be sure to read/print the instructions before attempting to use the firmware upgrade. Paying particular attention to the section dealing with whether your drive is OEM or LG. This firmware is only for LG drives and will not work on LG OEM drives. Use this file at your own risk. I nor driverguide.com will not assume any responsibility if your drive is damaged.
