No new f/w for the 42L at the moment, when it will be available you'll have to use ala42 MediaCodeSpeedEdit to get max read speed, i really dont know much about booktype and LG drivers, but my guess is that you'll have to wait for a Hitachi or Buffalo firmware.
okay, where do I look for those FW , and using ALA42, I know what to do there , can i download original FW from LGs website , or do I have to make a dump of the drives FW ?Thanks !!! ivol !
s website , or do I have to make a dump of the drive
The firmware is only SL00 at the moment. official.You can look to http://us.lgservice.com for new firmwares
LG GSA-H42L does change book type for DVD+R and DVD+RDL but not for DVD+RW.The problem is that the changing is not permanent, I mean after restarting your PC your setting to DVD-ROM is lost and have to set it again.This can be resolved with a utility called Bitset, who's running every time you start your PC.See this link for download the application and .... it worked for me. And is very useful.
The link for bitsetting is
As Vasy said, no new f/w for the 42, you'll have to wait with us for a f/w.
Ala42 is a user that makes MediaCodeSpeedEdit, have a look here for more info.
I think that there is no way to dump an LG firmware.
