I have this DVD-ROM drive, LG (HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8162B) with firmware version 0015.
I have been unable to find a newer firmware anywhere. I have seen
posts from other owners with firmware 0017 and 0020.
The problem I'm trying to fix is it's inability to read DVD+R DL. If memomory serves me correctly my old lite-on 166s had a firmware update to fix this problem.
This is a new drive that I would like to keep but if it's not possible to upgrade the firmware to fix it then it will go in the dumpster.
