I own two LG dvd burning drives:
- GSA-4167B [Model]
- GSA-H10N [Model]
I bought both of these in canada as OEM products at a computer store. I don't know anything about firmware or how to use it, all I know is it updates hardware to work better... I think I'm correct but not sure. Well if hardware has updates it must be for the better no? So therefore I would like to update the firmware on both of these dvd burning drives. I have no idea where to get firmware updates for these two drives and I am scared because I have never done a firmware update before. I heard you can damage your hardware by updating firmware, or something along those lines.
I've been looking long and hard for firmware updates for these two drives on the LG site and Google. I've found nothing on the LG site, and Google only gives me urls to sites I would don't trust since they are not the manufacturers site.
1. Can someone tell me what firmware/updates is for when used on hardware?
2. Can you please let me know the dangers of installing firmware or the wrong one?
3. Can someone please help me find the firmware updates for my two LG dvd drives? [Or let me know if I even need them, since I have no clue what firmware version I currently have]
- Thank You
The reason I want to do this is to have my two drives up to date, and also have the best burns. [If that is what firmware updates do...]
