I have had this LG GSA4120B for almost 6 month now, never had problems before (Disk reading and recording), and now, I just found that it is getting harder of reading certain disks, and I thought maybe it’s time to upgrade the firmware to the lastest version.
My Current Version is A100, and I tried to upgrade to A115, and It failed.
Info about My PC: A dell labtop with usb2.0 and 1394, I put the LG 4120B into a 5.25 Case (connected using usb2.0). OS : win xp pro sp2
What I did: I run the update program(.exe), the drive was found and selected in the program, then I clicked UPDATE, after around 30 mins, a message is shown says: firmware update failed. and I tried again, the same thing happened.
The Optical Drive gets old after a couple month of using, does firmware upgrade fix that kind of problem? (I had no problem with recording or reading before, now just getting harder of reading certain disks, Recording is just fine like a new drive)
If a firmware upgrade failed, what damage does that cause?
Now, the drive seems fine after the update failure. but i still wondering if I need this upgrade.
Thank you guys in advance for Helping me!
