Still a quite impressive burn with cheaper media....

This little drive seems to love cheap media, and it burns as expected with quality media as well.

Just bought this drive, love it so far.  However using Nero 7.0.1.4b doesn't let me use the LightScribe feature.   I have/see no option for it at all.  Has anyone tried this with Nero?

Yes it does.

You will have to uninstall Nero and reinstall it.  I guess you installed the drive without removing Nero first.  Nero will work fine with your drive once you uninstall and then install it.

HI, just got the  LG GSA 2166D (external USB 2.0) with Firmware 1.01.
Some Orginal DVD like Meet the Fokers 1+2  or War of the World is not regognized.
My brother has the same Drive with Firmware 1.00 and there is no Prolem.

In our local french forum, there's someone with a bulk LG 4166 1.01 (pre-installed) who is reporting such problems on some original Video DVD. He use AnyDVD, I don't... Maybe it's a software problem ? Maybe not.

MP3Mogul, is it possible to have the 1.00 bin file ?

I do not have the original 1.00 bin file.  I have no problem with either of those films with 1.01 firmware.  I do use the latest release of AnyDVD.

OK ! At least two releases of the 1.01 firmware exists :

A firmware delivered with the 1.01 drives from factory : maybe these one have these problems (2005-10-18)



The 1.01 firmware from MP3Mogul : 2005-11-14 which maybe works better ?



You've got to test this zip file I think.

The firmware is here : http://members.aol.com/mp3mogul/4166B.zip .
It works for external drive too.

LG 2166D are 4164 or 4166 inside, this is already known.

4164 can be crossflashed to 4166 1.01 with this zip.

A question : do your brother drive (4164 inside) support LightScribe ?
