This firmware update is for drives with original firmware versions below 1.00.
The drives must be original LG branded drives with model number GCR-8526B(no OEM units). 

If you have an OEM unit, branded with another manufacturers name,

[Critical Instructions: (to be followed carefully)

1. Connect the drive as "master" by it self, on the secondary IDE controller 
   with no other device on the same IDE cable, making note to set the jumper 
   on the back of the drive to the "master" position.

2. Download the file GCR-8526B101(XP)EW.ZIP to a folder of your choice.
   This download includes this “Read me” text file as well as the GCR-8526B.EXE
   and GCR8526B101.bin, which will auto-update your drive’s firmware.

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.

  And then Re-boot your PC.

 -. 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.
