HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B A101 Firmware update help.

I am looking for some help to update the firmware of my LG drive. I am not able to locate the firmware driver for the same. I am having a Windows 7 pc and the optical drive takes a very long to read drives. The model that I am using is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B A101. I am able to find a firmware file but I am not sure that it is going to work on my system or not. I found on a site that by running the firmware update a lot of hardware issue can be resolved. But I am not able to find the exact download. I get two files. They areA105AUTO.EXE and A105RPC1.EXE. I want to know which one is going to work in my system.

You can find the optical drive firmware on the official site only. Do not try to update any other edition that can cause issue with the optical drive. Many optical drive gets slow down as times goes on. Because of the head quality. If you do not use it much then it might work slower. You can test by changing the cable. You can find that in the local shop. Just replace that and test once again. There are other third party DVD/CD burner that can offer you a lot more better transfer speed.

That is quiet right. You have to anyhow visit the official site of your optical drive manufacturer and there you can find a working firmware. Without that you cannot use the drive more effectively. Most of the optical drives fails to work after a while. I had replaced two in my pc and the firmware update does not help much. The good thing you can do try changing the cable as mentioned which might help. If the drive is not in very bad condition will work.
