The drives must be original LG branded drives with the external DVD-Writer model number

[Critical Instructions&How to update the firmware]

1. Connect the drive at USB port by it self.

2. Download and unzip the file AP70NS50_1.01.ZIP to a folder of your choice. 

3. Close all other programs including: screen saver, antivirus and/or power-down programs. 
   (If these programs are not closed, they will try to engage the PC, 
   during the update process, thus interrupting the update and damaging the drive).

4. Check the drive to ensure that there is no disk in the tray before you start 
   the update procedure.

5. Go into the folder with the update file and double click the AP70NS50_1.01.exe 
   program and click the “update” button (red). Once the update is complete, 
   you will see “Firmware Update Complete” and the button will become green 
   and advise you to reboot the system. You will need to reboot your PC.

The update will be complete, after you reboot your system. 

※ WARNING: Do not open any programs or start any system functions during the update, 
as they will interfere with data transfer and damage the drive. 
Do not cancel the operation once it has been started or the drive will 
become permanently damaged, as a result.
