Hi, I'm a newbie to this, so please don't yell if my questions sound stupid. :)  I have an LG GWA-4164B in my new Dell XPS, its supposed to read dual layer DVDs...but it doesn't.  I've read a couple of articles about cross flashing the drive with the LG CSA-4166B firmware, which would supposedly allow for use of DVD-RAM, as well as dual layer support.  Can this really be done?  I've looked at some of the firmware code and seen a reference to 4164 in there, however the LG provided firmware loader absolutely refuses to load the updated firmware.  So, assuming it is possible, exactly how would I cross flash from the 4164 to the 4166?

Yes it is possible.

You will need a firmware.  If you PM me with your email address, I will send you the firmwares you will need.  The first will be for firmware 1.01 and then 1.02... 1.01 will "have" to be done first.


LG GSA H22L Firm 1.02
Samsung SH-203N Firm SB01
LiteOn SOHD-16P9S Firm FS0D
