Okay I want to update my DVD-rom Driver due to it having a difficulty playing LOTR-FOTR Special Edition.
Here's a link to LG's site Link doesn't work.Got to than to Canada,than to device driver,dvd-rom,scroll down to LOTR-FOTR Special edition.Will tell you there.
Now I know that I have to download the files from for Dos. 6.0.After I do this do I double click on the files,from and send them to a floppy disk?Than after that the 2 files from LG's site I put on this Bootable Disk?
Restart the computer type in the command and let it go?
If I do this wrong is there anyway of screwing up my Bios,I have a Dell computer and don't want to screw anything.
The Lg Dvd-rom I bought seperatly and installed myself.
Someone help me on this or was the above correct??

MY DVD-rom is installed and works.The only problem is the model can't play LORT-FOTR Special Edtion.LG has a firmware update for the DVD-rom so It will play this specific DVD.
All my other DVD's work fine.Just This one doesn't.Figured out after seaching LG's site need to flash my device driver but am a little confused on how.
The best one to seek out may be slipe. might be a good idea to private message him for a little advice first on the specifics.
