Looking forward for your reply. Is it similar to pacting the drive with the original firmware …? It is considered very bad form to send in a drive for service under warranty when you ruin it during flashing an unofficial firmware. Connect the drive to the secondary IDE channel as a master drive with no other devices connected to that channel. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact LG customer support at Sven Tested on Windows XP.

Is it similar to pacting the drive with the original firmware …? With AnyDVD you do not need a codefree firmware at all since it emulates whatever you want for hardware and software. If an error occurs during the upgrade process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage to the drive can occur. Open the firmware program.

The only suggestion is the unofficial firmware. After downloading, double-click the file to expand it. For more info try Google, or a search on rpc1. S, i dont understand why, btw i know theres some unofficial firmware that allow me to change the region of the drive, but i want to keep my drive gsz4163b the official firmware so the warranty wont be affected, any suggestion?

I wonder if any GSA B owners have tried that yet?


Please post your experience if you have tried it. Heroay Tested on Windows XP.

Actually the problem was caused by gsz4163b fact that i did not close dvd idle pro before flashing. Never update the firmware if the problem you’re having is the drive isn’t seen by windows, won’t write with the included software, or other interface related problems, unless the firmware specifically states it fixes the problem you are having.

Trying to update the firmware when there are interface problems can damage the drive’s firmware.

After I closed down ALL my apps and rebooted again, this time, every single tool that i have, and winxp shows the drive as region free. Then run the executable file it extracts after reading the instructions. Was this review helpful? Sven Tested on Windows XP. If you haven’t already, download the firmware file and extract the zip file. Actually I tried everything under LG …thinking they might be the same drives.

The flashing shows no progress…maybe you can try and post some comments. Click the update button and do not touch or interfere with the drive while the firmware is being upgraded.

Start Windows and verify it can recognize the drive. Also disconnect any other optical drives connected to the computer. An error when updating the firmware is usually caused by a problem with the drive interface or there is more than one drive connected to that I See More DE channel. I use the autoreset firmware for the LG, but region free for my other drives.

The primary risk with either is the flashing process itself. Flashing process with the rpc1 firmware is the same as the one using the official firmware. Just for variety, there is no rational reason for my choice! Those who are paranoid often disconnect anything but the drive they want to flash.

And yes, if the drive is defective in some way and you are not responsible for the damage, then you can reflash back to the factory firmware and send it in.

Firmware updates normally don’t address these types of problems. The following files are found inside the driver download file. Everything went well and i rebooted. This effectively gives you an infinite number of region changes, without all the software BS required by an RPC1 firmware.
