Hi,

LG GWA4161B is nothing but GSA4160B without DVD-RAM support but I doubt you could use the same firmware.

Hope this helps.

Hello Kenshin,
I’m french, then my English can be not very good.
I’m searching for a firmware for an LG(or HL-DT-ST) DVD RW GWA-4160B and i have more difficults to find one. Can you help me please. Thank you.


#9

Have you tried GSA-4160B firmware? If it doesn’t work, I can’t help you at all.


#10

I have download the new firmware A303 for the LG GSA-4160B and show the HL-DT-ST GWA-4161B to update… I don’t know if is the same firmware, but the old A301 and A302 don’t recognized the 4161B… If somebody know about this, please tell me…

(I’m sorry for my english)


#11

Does any work in your drive?


#12

I have tried the GSA-4160B Version A303 Firmware on the GWA-4161b, it does not work. Sadly the GWA-4161b is not supported by LG. A lot of people have looked for GWA-4161b firmware, many disapointed customers.


#13

I’m very dissapointed with LG. I have 4161b and everybody knows what happend with firmware (nothing). I have LG TV 2 years and it is over- no chanse to repair.
That is the end with me and LG.


#14

these drives were oem drives supplied in some pc systems, there is no firmware updates available and no way to dump it from a drive


#15

Is there any chance that the The Dangerous Brothers are going to make an updated firmware for this drive? Or do they only make firmware for retail drives?


#16

I think they can only modify firmware when they have a copy of the firmware in a file. Since there are no firmware updates for it, they have no firmware file to work with.


#17

There are firmwares available from HP for the 4161 and 4162. One of these two is a firmware update for a HP640b. The flasher will probably look for the HP drive name, so the firmware can probably not be used directly.


#18

Might work if the poster’s drive is on a system from HP. He didn’t mention whether his drive came with a system or he bought it from a shop.

Here you find the HP update SP26522.

HP dvd640 revision b Firmware Update
This is a firmware update for the HLDS GWA-4084B 8X DVD(+/-)R/RW DL LS

Inside the firmware there are the strings: ‘DVDRRW GWA-4161’ and ‘HP DVD Writer 540b A19305/03/15’. The strings 640 and 4084 do not occur at all.
Inside the flasher you find ‘HP DVD Writer 540b’, ‘HP DVD Writer 640b’ and ‘HL-DT-ST 4161B EME’

When I run “Install.exe” inside the SP26522.exe package, the error message says something about HLDS GWA-4084B.
