Why do i update lg odd firmware

it is asking always to update it
why i have to update it
what is the use of it:rolleyes:

Firmware updates for optical drives are usually released for one or more of the following reasons:

  1. To correct bugs or issues found in the previous firmware.
  2. To improve reading and/or writing performance of the drive over the previous firmware.
  3. To add/subtract support for optical media over the previous firmware.

There may be other reasons depending on the manufacturer.

Hi and Welcome![quote=pranav.naresh;2198636]it is asking always to update it

I personally don’t trust these “autoupdate” software at all. I prefer the manual way: download the firmware from the support website and install manually.
The reasons for the availability of firmware updates are already described.

There is one rule: if your hardware works without problems, then there is no need to upgrade your firmware.
I’d uninstall the autoupdate software, so it doesn’t annoy you anymore.
