I bought a GH24NSB0 but didn’t get around to installing it for quite some time.
When I did put it in the computer and try to install Linux, I had disc read issues, so I burned another disc, which didn’t help. I was burning on a new LG WH16NS40 in a different machine.
I looked and it has LF00 firmware and a newer one was available from LG, LN01. When I try to flash the newer firmware, it hangs at 0%. I’m using Windows 7 64 bit, and I swapped cables, ports, and drivers. The motherboard is a Z77 Extreme 4 with ASMedia & Intel controllers. Antivirus is off and I am running it as administrator. The drive was not used from the time it was bought to the time I tried to flash it after having read problems, so it’s possible it’s defective.
I’m pretty familiar with flashing and have cross flashed since the days when we got 2x more speed out of CD burners. I don’t think I’m overlooking anything and if I am, it’ll be a well duh moment! I can’t find an alternative firmware or flash method, all of the links are outdated. The only flash fail I have is from the LG website and it hangs every time.
Does anyone know of any other available firmware?
