I downloaded the firmware updater from the official LG web site

In case there is another drive on the same IDE cable, disconnect it and try again.

Please keep no CD in the 4163B

Hi,[quote=Neobyte22;2104869]
i want to know what means the next error:

"Updating was failed. (…)
My DVD writer is dead and i wanna recover that:sad:[/quote]Could you please provide some information about the IDE controller you have hooked your drive on?
Reason why I am asking:
Newer Intel chipset mainboards don’t have an integrated IDE (P-ATA) controller any more, so the mainboard manufacturers solder a 3rd party chip (often Jmicron) onto their products. These chips often don’t play well with optical drives.

Thanks men! but my problem stills…

my drive is the unique connected to my motherboard… that is an ASrock…

there is no a CD o DVD in the drive… its empty…

and the firmware is the correct 100%

the only thing is that my drive is OEM

but i don’t understand why it could be a problem

i bought it in a trusted store

thanks in advance…

if somebody can tell me what means the error code i will be so grateful!

You can try to flash it in the pure DOS.
using A100orig,don’t useA106.if success,and to flash to A106.
you can search A100 in forum

#11

On right…

i started winXP with the DOS diskette and ran the firmware updater (the A100orig.bin by the Dangerous Brothers )
and it stop with the same code error than the others updaters:


Cmd : 3B 05 00 17 00 00 00 04 00 00
Err : 70 00 04 00 00 00 00 10 09 00 00 00 8F 81

ERROR : Upload and burn failed


it could be a broken direction of memory of my DVD drive??

i don’t know what to do…

thanks for all the posts

thanx in advance.

Please in the pure DOS,don’t enter windows.

[QUOTE=yunbiao;2109294]Please in the pure DOS,don’t enter windows.[/QUOTE]

Yes, that is what i did

in the pure DOS

but it does’t work… it’s the same code error (extravagant!)

I’ve got a diskette with the DOS starter

thanks again but it does’t work


#14

You still have not provided the detailled information requested.
The information “Motherboard manufacturer Asrock” is not sufficient at all.

My mothes has a VIA chipset man… it has got to work fine


#16

[quote=Neobyte22;2109819]My mothes has a VIA chipset man… it has got to work fine[/quote]Okay. VIA chipset should do fine (I can confirm that).
Please check if the drive is properly connected and configured:

  • Cable undamaged and the drive is connected to the end connector of the cable. In doubt replace the IDE cable. Must be 18" (46cm) flat ribbon. 80wired is recommended but not mandatory with that drive. No longer cables, no rounded ones.
  • Jumper on the drive is set to Master
  • verify your drive is really a GSA-4163 (look on the sticker). There is also a GWA-4163, that’s why I request you to double check.

In case VIA IDE drivers are installed, get rid of them.

thanks in advance!
