LG ? writer

i have a new computer and with a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4164B -[ f/w1.01] Fujitsu OEM writer

is this the same as a LG/HLDS GSA-4166B or not
after reading this forum i am not sure

If you are asking can you crossflash these two drives: yes you can. And you’ll maybe get Lightscribe function. You can find modified firmware at the TDB page.

Chances are that you won’t be able to get lightscribe ability after crossflashing to a 4166B because the 4166B has an extra lightscribe sensor needed for lightscribe burning. See here (Q21) :

i think i try the original 4164B 1.03fimware from fujitsu first

it must have the same specs the LG firmware [ i hope ]
