None of the internal LG drives require firmware updates. When you cannot play a movie or burn DVDs, normally you will need to update their PC software. Nothing related with LG. Most Common software upgrade you would need is Power-DVD. If your GSA model needs a firmware upgrade, they are available online at http://www.lg.com/us/support/index.jsp

Thank you for your question. A possible reason why the message is coming up is that you are choosing a file format that exceeds size of the disc or you may be using a dual-layer disc. If these are not the reasons please contact one of our product specialists at 1-800-243-0000 for assistance.

This drive uses a standard, 80-pin, flat IDE interface cable. The power cable is typically hard-wired into your computer’s internal power supply box.

This drive has been designed as a Plug and Play device, and only utilizes the drivers provided by the operating system. If the drive is not being recognized, then it is likely that there is some issue with its installation. It is recommended to check your jumper settings and your system specifications. According to the manual for this drive, it is fully compatible with Windows VISTA, so this should not be a problem. If these suggestions do not resolve the matter, then it is recommended to contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional troubleshooting.

Device drivers are provided by the operating system. It is recommended to check your system configuration to see if there might be an older device driver already in place, causing interference for the operation of this unit. If so, remove the driver, turn off the TV, and then turn it back on and allow the installation of the correct driver. If you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
