[QUOTE=tarby;2459903]http://www.lgservice.co.kr/SearchSddr.laf

type in G22 (…)[/quote]There are much more new firmwares. I saw a GH22LP20 ver. 2.00 for example, released on 31-10-2009. Can’t read korean either, but I could see “Windows 7” in that character salad.

On the Korean site there are new firmwares rleased 31/10/09 for all GH22, GH24, BE08, BH08, CH08, GE20LU11, GE20NU11, GP08NU20 drives available.

External 20X Super Multi DVD Writer (GE20LU11) of the new CL01 firmware version (Windows 7 supported)

Same hardware as the GE20LU10?


#111

I forgot google translate did Korean!

Having translated the information on the site the only “update” apears to be Windows 7 support

â—† Model: GH22LS50

â—† Version: TL02

â—† improvements

  1. Windows 7 Support

No, the GE20LU11 seems to be an external GH22LS40.

Thankfully there are several new firmware options for the LG BH08xS20 drive. I had flashed my LG BH08LS20 to EL02-05, which made it a BH08NS20 drive, when I tried to flash it with the new LG BH08LS20 ver. 2.00, it would not recognize the drive…with help from [B]ala42(:bow:)[/B] I found a way around this problem. First one has to use the unofficial version 1.00-3 FW, which will recognize the NS drive and change it back to a LS drive (if it originally had the optical rotation sensor - meaning it was originally a LS drive). Then one can flash the drive with the LG stock version 2.00 FW and one is back in business!

LG has version 2.00 for both the BH08NS20 and the BH08LS20 drives, and for NS drives, there is now EL02-06 FW.

So, I have setup download links for all these FW’s, along with MCSE speed patched versions…

Here are the links:

BH08LS20 ver. 1.00-3 (unofficial):

The above quoted files are no longer available for download - it was reckless of me to offer these as they will void one’s drive warranty.

If one so desires a speedpatched version of the firmware, one has only to use ala42’s tool MCSE (media code speed edit) and make the patched version oneself.

I am sorry for the indescretion in offering them in the first place. :o

#123

[B]GP20N Firmware 1.02[/B] (09/06/12) (Medion OEM)

http://rapidshare.com/files/358575877/GP20N_1.02_09.06.12_Win7__Medion_.rar

With the exception of a couple of bytes, this firmware is identical with the LG [B]GP08NU20 1.01[/B] firmware. Both firmwares have the same release date and the two drives have the same core. The archive contains a stand alone flasher (FlashWinX118.exe) and the firmware is a *.bin file which is a nice touch for a drive with a Panasonic chipset :wink:
