[QUOTE=rhudman;1955924]I have just bought a LG DVD/VCR recorder model 517. The burner is labeled as a GDA-4163B and DVDINfo Pro identifies it as such. The firmware version is T018. I am trying to get the firmware update but the GSA-4163 does not work. Drive not found. Any help available?
It’s a great drive, and works about as well with the original firmware as with any of the updates. Updates added new media, but did not effect burn quality. In any case, you cannot “cross-flash” it. For firmware, you would need to go to LG.
Edit: I’ve never played with This tool, but it supposedly supports cross-flashing. Use at your own risk, there’s no way to recover a bad flash on LG drives, AFAIK.
