Okay, due to an overwhelming amount of PM's asking for this firmware, you can download it here

This is firmware 1.01 for the LG GSA-4166B drive.  Before you post back, when you load the HD Loader program, select the .bin file.  Your screen will show you some weird drive name, it's OKAY, FLASH the drive, the firmware is correct, just the graphics are not.....

I still cannot get the program to work. Anyone have a flasher for binary files for the LG drives?

I also always get the error:

Can not initialize: 27D4

Seems to be a problem of the HBLoader, or?

Do you have ASPI on your system?

I contacted LG, they said you MUST for the flasher to work, and I included the aspi.dll file needed now in the download, so try downloading it again and see if it works for you now.

Thanks mogul !

I've just bought this LG as a secondary burner (got a BenQ 1620 since a few months), I hope it will come with 1.01 fw.

No, you cannot, firmware is "DRIVE SPECIFIC" meaning it is designed for ONE particular drive.

If you flash your drive with this firmware and it is not an LG 4166B, you will ruin your drive, and render it useless.

Today I've received my LG GSA-4166B and I've just put it in my computer. Let's see how it works... ;-)

Btw.: My drive was manufactured in November 2005 *strike* and has the firmware 1.01 - perhaps with correct graphics?

Drago, you already have the latest firmware then.  You're gonna "LOVE" this drive!

Two users have crossflashed 4164@4166 1.01 (but without LS support) and HP dvd840@4166 1.01 with your "4166B.zip".

I was beginning to wonder if this firware would EVER be made available.   Thank you for this version, my download and update went flawlessly, even though it appeared at first that I was flashing back to a 4164...

Does anyone have any idea why LG is so slow to support these new drives?   Their "automatic" ODD firmware update software doesn't work, either.  I am getting the message "Run-time error '7': Out of memory" which is a bogus message.

There ODD automatic update is flawed, I have reported this to them, but they do nothing to fix it.

This firmware has not been "officially" released yet.  I received it from a friend that works at LG's factory.
