This firmware update was created to provide the HLDS (Hitachi-LG Data Storage Inc.) GCC-4481B CD-RW/DVD combo drive with the ability to read DVD+R Dual-Layer media.
This drive was never intended to be able to read this media, and as such this firmware update is provided as-is on a best effort basis. There is no guarantee that after updating to this firmware, the drive will read all types of DVD+R Dual-Layer media.
It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.
Do not forget to check with our site as often as possible in order to stay updated on the latest drivers, software and games.
Try to set a system restore point before installing a device driver. This will help if you installed a wrong driver. Problems can arise when your hardware device is too old or not supported any longer.
