GWA-4083B firmware


I recently found a compaq computer with a GWA-4083B dvd burner installed. The drive has firmware 1.09 and I noticed that there is 1.19 available on compaq’s website.

This is my first experience with an LG drive since my 8x cd burner. I was wondering if there are any other firmwares that the drive can be flashed with (GSA series?). I simply want the most updated firmware possible for maximum media compatibility.

Thanks in advance!


stick with the OEM firmwares, as it is not always possible to crossflash an OEM drive to retail firmware. See also this FAQ section.


Ah, thanks for the heads up.
