    If this is an HP/Compaq pc here's the latest - link.
    But your drive is a cd writer/reader - dvd reader. Doesn't burn dvd's.

    Or were you looking for firmware on the LG Burner?

    If he's using a version say 2 or more behind this one all updates will be included. Some may have been to update the media codes.

    The slow burning have them check and make sure all the drives are in DMA mode and not PIO mode.
    Here's a guide
