http://download.cnet.com/keyfinder-thing/3000-2094_4-10491989.html Finding lost application install keys is quick and simple with this handy executable, a complete rewrite of a well-received earlier version. Keyfinder Thing's simple, easy-to-understand interface has Wizard-like efficiency. This application quickly scans your system registry for 90 supported software titles and displays product names and icons in the result window. Single-button clicks copy all keys to either a text or HTML file.

While an earlier version found software keys in addition to the ones supported, this version covered only 90 specified titles. Network searches are no longer available, but program search speed has greatly improved. All users can easily use and benefit from this freeware, but network administrators will find it an important part of their toolbox

if this fails there are many freeware keyfinders on the internet
after you have recovered your key just uninstall the program if you no longer need it
hope it helps you

http://download.cnet.com/product-key-finder/3000-2094_4-10694022.html Product Key Finder is a single function utility that executes in a GUI, but displays a Command window result. You merely double-click it to display the 25 character Microsoft Windows Product Key.

There aren't any such drivers.  The drive control protocols are standardized.  Just do Windows Update a few times and make sure the thing's connected when you restart storage subsystems (pretty much a reboot; though installing Nero will of course get things going if you don't love Vista built-in tools.)

Yes. The driver should be part of the Windows OS. If you have any problems, try a new data cable.

I hope this helps.

as far as i know there are no drivers for these cd/dvd drives. i went to lg and they only have a maual listed. no firmware updates and no software available. i have never seen a cd/dvd drive cd with drivers.

This may due to burner lens alignment problem or dust is accumulated on the lens. Clean lens using lens cleaner CD and still you are facing problem, then it should be a lens alignment issue. Repair/Replace the burner lens will solve your problem.
Revert back for more clarifications or assistance required.

You got a bad laser in the drive not the laser the reads the laser that writes and this does generally happen when a dvd ram drive goes. Recommend buying a new drive as a replacment laser is upwards of $90 bucks, thanks for using fixya please do accept and rate.

That is not unusual.
Several of my CD/DVD drives are listed as CD drives.
They still play and write DVDs.
The problem is cosmetic and not worth spending time on.

Now if you are trying to play a DVD movie you are going to need a CODEC (Coder/Decoder).
Windows XP does not include a CODEC to play DVD movies.
I use Intervideo WinDVD.

I hope this helps.

Do you experience this issue only with CD's or does it also occur with blank DVD's?

LG (GSA-5169D)... | Answered on Nov 02, 2008


Sounds like it may be a software issue. Have you tried using a different burning application? This may help.
