Installation instructions
To uprade the firmware on your LG DVD-ROM to version 1.13 drive perform the
following steps.

NOTE: To perform this upgrade you will need to have your DVD-ROM and floppy
disk drive connected to your computer. For instructions on how to attach your
floppy drive externally, see your system documentation.

Make sure that your computer is plugged in to AC power before attempting this

Step 1) After you have downloaded the firmware update, locate and
double click on the DLGDVD01.exe file.

Step 2) Insert a blank formatted floppy diskette into drive A: and
click "Setup".

Step 3) After clicking "Setup," follow the onscreen prompts and the files will be
automatically extracted to drive A:.

Step 4) After extracting the files, restart your computer with the floppy
diskette in the drive. If your system does not boot from the
LG DVD-ROM firmware upgrade diskette, see your system documentation
regarding changing the "Boot Sequence" in your system bios.

Step 5) The firmware upgrade process will begin automatically. During the
firmware upgrade process you will see a progress bar with the firmware
update status. Once it has completed, you will see a message with the
updated drive information. If you recieve a message stating "Current
drive is not supported..", your drive is not an LG DVD-ROM or is not
the correct model of LG DVD-ROM drive and this upgrade is not
applicable to your drive. Do not unplug or turn off your machine
while the upgrade is being performed!

Step 6) After the firmware upgrade process is complete, remove the floppy
diskette from the drive and restart the computer.

After restarting, the operating system may re-detect the drive and prompt another restart.

To confirm that the firmware upgrade was completed properly, perform the following steps.

Step 1) To view the firmware revision of the DVD-ROM drive you will need to
look in Windows Device Manager.

Step 2) In Windows 98SE, or Windows Millenium Edition you can access the
Device Manager by first right clicking on your "My Computer" icon.
Next, click on the "Device Manager" tab. Next, click on the "+" next
to "CDROM". Once you have clicked on the "+" next to "CDROM" double
click on "LG DVD-ROM". Next, click on the settings tab. The
"Firmware revision:" in the upper right hand corner should now be
"1.13". If the revision number still shows 1.11 or earlier, run
through the firmware upgrade steps again.

In Windows 2000, it will be necessary to locate the new firmware version in the LG
status window during the flash process, as Windows 2000 lacks a means to report the
firmware version.
