Suggestions are welcome. Doesn't matter now, cause I use the LG ODD Auto Firmware Updater for my H55L.

I downloaded the firmware update utility from the LG USA site. You get any kind of OEM firmware in that drive you bought and it might generate a message like that. My BURNER would not BURN DVDs, it would only READ them.

Do not copy or redistribute in any form. I do not know if this only works with the LG GSA-H55L DVD Burner, or if it will work with OTHER DVD burners. I still can take the LG burner back to BestBuy, and get some other instead. Thanks for the quick reply.

You might be better off with a SATA burner on one of the main Intel ports of your mobo. I do not have another desktop computer, only a laptop, so I cannot connect it to another ATAPI interface.
I am thinking in getting the 18x Pioneer. In CD the average access time is up to 125msec and in DVD-ROM or RAM are up to 145 to 165msec.
