I’m wondering if it’s just down to bad luck.
I bought the LG 4120B and it came with A101. I then flashed it to A102 and then tried to go to A104. The firmware program hung and nothing happened. How long do you have to wait for it to go through? There were no lights on the drive and the program stopped responding. I waited for about 5 minutes and still nothing happened.
So I turned off the machine and decided to flash it to A102. It screwed up the drive and it spent 4 weeks with LG. The agent told me I might have bought a factory second (because I got it at the computer fairs) and this is what you might get with a factory second.
Now that I have just received a replacement yesterday, I tried going from A102 to A104 again. Still no luck.
I’m running WinXP and connected to the drive via USB2 to an external box. Does that matter?
I read in the readme text file that came with the firmware. There’s a line that goes:
“This firmware update is for drives with original firmware versions below A102.”
So if I got A102, will it not work?
