i have a lg gsa 2166d burner do i need to update to this new firmware version on their site? it says it will burn the +r dl at 8x but it will only burn at 6x , on the box it came in it says you will need to update the firmware but this has been the only new firmware update for it i have seen.

anyone know?

Yes.

Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4X (MKM001) are supported @2.4X, 4X and 6X.

You need Verbatim DVD+R DL 8X (MKM003) to do a DVD+R DL 8X burn.
