Lg gh24ls70

Greetings all!

I was wondering if there was an current program to dump/extract/copy the firmware from this model? I would very much like to see the writing strategies included in it. I have been unable to locate a copy of the firmware anywhere.

Thanks so much :slight_smile:

Wow, seems the LG support almost twice as many different writing strategies as the HP or the LO.

Does anyone have any opinions on other comparisons between the LG, HP, & LO?

I still have all 3, but have time to return any of them (Asus is determining if they are going to RMA & refund the unit, or update their firmware).

Thanks so much for any info :slight_smile:

Don’t try to form opinion based on the reported number of supported discs.

LG’s firmware has quite a few repeat entries (possibly due to how LG has to program the firmware), as well as entries for media we will likely never encounter (16x DVD+R DL media, unreleased disc models that I’ve never seen a scan of, etc).

The LiteOn drives focus support on the real media we can actually get, and little else (which, as you can tell, isn’t a bad thing).

Do you know of any comparison reports between the two? (or at least between the LG & LO models?) I haven’t been able to find any :frowning: Have found a couple of solo reviews for the LG, but none comparing them.


Don’t think anyone does any comparisons. You’ll have to draw your own conclusions from any scans you may find. Personal opinion would be to go with the HP. I’ve shared my personal opinion on LG drive performance: predictably good almost every time with good media at a reasonable speed, a complete mess if you have media known to be lower quality.

Well that’s good enough for me :slight_smile:

I haven’t had any probs with the HP, and even though I paid more for it a BB than I could online, returning it is easier.

Thanks! :slight_smile:
