LG GDR8162B DVD-ROM Firmware Upgrade

I am looking for a firmware upgrade beyond version 0015 for LG's GDR8162B DVD-ROM drive.  Kinda funny, LG lists firmware upgrades in their support sites for the 8161B and 8163B, but not for the 8162B.  Either it's that good of a DVD-ROM drive that never required a firmware update beyond version 0015, or it's that bad and LG moved on to the 8163B Smiley Indifferent.  I've come across a firmware upgrade @ driverguide.com, version 0020 but the extracted contents look suspect.  I've heard that Dell did distribute and support the 8162B on some Dell Systems (Dim 2400/Dim 8300), yet my search of Dell has yielded no results for the 8162B.  Advice and/or suggestions are greatly welcomed Smiley Happy.  TIA.

Re: LG GDR8162B DVD-ROM Firmware Upgrade

Hi,
I have package of drivers for GDR-8162B DVD-ROM by chanceSmiley Happy This zip package includes all version of drivers for this drive known - 0015, 0017, 0018, 0019 and 0020. It has also all RPC1 and RPC2 firmware and flashers. For your drive situation is a little bit complicated by the fact that there is different firmware variations for GDR-8162B installed in various computers but Dell is listed for some of the versions. Short readme file is included. Its big enough so if you need it just let me know and I'll send it to you.
Best regards,

Would someone mind sharing these? If we use something like Yahoo! Briefcase (http://briefcase.yahoo.com/), then someone can upload it once and we can all share.

Hi.  I am very glad that you have these firmware upgrades.  I used a flasher for my cd-rw drive and after using it my dvd drive has no longer been functioning. If you would send me those files to Sovine5@marshall.edu i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
