Upgrading CD-RW firmware

I have a gateway made CD-RW drive and want to upgrade the firm ware for it but they dont list it as having any new drivers. HOWEVER! The name of my CD drive is HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8160b which is typically a LGE made part. Is it safe to use the LGE drivers or no?

RE: Upgrading CD-RW firmware for LGE

IMPORTANT: do not interfere with the drive during the firmware update. If an error occurs during the upgrade process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage to the drive can occur. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact our LG customer support line toll-free at 1-800-243-0000.

Firmware updates are posted in the device driver section. Visit and click the device driver icon in the middle of the page. Firmware software for newer drives works in windows mode with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. If the file you downloaded contains an executable and a file with a “.lge” extension, this firmware should be run in MS-DOS.

Before updating the firmware, Remove any disks from the drive and connect the drive to the secondary IDE channel as a master drive with no other devices connected to that channel. Warning: If you have two optical drives on the same channel it may try to update both of them and erase or damage the firmware in each one.

For the Windows versions of the firmware software:
Start Windows and verify it can recognize the drive.

Execute the firmware program. If the current firmware version is a lower number than the new version, the Update button should be green. If it's red, the program cannot communicate with your drive or your drive has the current firmware revision.

Click the update button. When the upgrade is complete the screen should say FIRMWARE UPDATE SUCCESSFUL. Restart the computer.

For the MS-DOS versions of the firmware software:
Start the computer using a Windows startup disk. (You can download boot disks from the Internet at places like Type in the name of the executable file followed by the lge firmware file (without the file extensions attached). For example, jv2 jv2lglx52. Restart the computer when done.
