LG GSA-4166B 1.02 Firmware Available For Download

Postby Ian on Wed Feb 08, 2006 11:09 am

LG's engineers finally sent my contact at LG USA the 1.02 firmware for the GSA-4166B. Which is a good thing since I wasn't able to update the drive via their goofy auto update util. In any case, here it is:

GSA-4166B102.zip

Model:GSA-4166
¡ß Ver:1.02
¡ß Improvement Point
- Improvement of recording fail for specific DVD+RW & CD-RW media
- improvement of recognition fail for DVD Title

Please do NOT link directly to the file. If you must link to something, link to this page. If I see a bunch of people posting direct links to the file, the firmware will be removed.

Oh good.. LG USA updated their website:

http://us.lgservice.com/

Click on Device Driver and then DVD-ROM(Writer).

There's also an update for the GSA-2164D. For whatever reason, its only 1.01 though.

No, the DL13 is posted since a few days now.

Look my post in the 4167 review.

The 1.02 firmware seems to correct my DVD+RW 8X issue with RicohJPNW21 : before 1.02, a score of 0 with PI/PIF at max levels...

The 1.02 firmware restore my 8X RW... (this Philips DVD+RW 8X suffers from his first burn with 1.01 - high PIE are still visible now...)

I am having difficulty finding firmware for a HL GSA-4166B internal DVD drive.
I assume it is the same as for a LG GSA-4166B drive.
LG does not list it on their site, just a 4165 and a 4167.

Can someone help me get this firmware?
Thank you.
