LG dvd external drive not recognized by computer

ERROR 43? Check your SATA connection.
(IE. Computer tries to install driver for BD burner, but ultimately fails, and gives the message. "Unsuccessful" and/or "Microsoft Windows stopped device. Error 43") The SATA CONNECTION on my BD burner's EXTERNAL CASE had gone bad.
TO TEST IT. I used a SATA/IDE to USB Adapter Cable I bought for about $10 on amazon.
  • I unscrewed the external case to get at the internal drive, and plugged the SATA adapter cable directly into the internal BD burner drive (bypassing the case assembly), and plugged the other end into my computer USB port.
    • PS My BD burner POWER was working OK, so I left the big white 4pin power adapter connected to the original external case.

VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).

  • Now I either need to (1) Buy a NEW EXTERNAL case ($10 - $30), (2) install it as an internal drive (could get problematic if "ANYDVD" is installed) or (3) just leave it connected via the cheap adapter cable.
It's super EASY (& inexpensive) to TEST this before spending $$$$ on a new equipment.
Hope this helps someone. It had me miffed for a while there.

your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd burner then plug them back in or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

In MY Computer, check to see if the DVD drive icon is there.
Try a different DVD or CD brand
Check the sata or IDE cable connection to the rear of the drive and also the security of the power rail

make sure that the IDE/SATA Cale that you are usin is workin properly and also make sure that the power cable from the powersupply is workin..while restartin you can press the eject button to see if there will be a Green liht to check if there is a power on the DVD..

3 thinGs to check:

*sata/ide cable
*Power cable from the PSU
*DVD writer if all cables are workin try to connect the dvd writer to a diff computer to check if it is faulty

I want to install a 2nd dvd burner. But I don't know how to hook it up. My new pc does not have the ribbons like my old one does.

If your 2nd DVD burner is on IDE interface, you may need to get an IDE to SATA cable. Please refer to the picture below as to how it looks like:

Sata DVD burner

This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

This will be fixing your problem.

Have a great day

I just had a tech do in home replacement on one of my hard drives on my hp 8020. He did not plug the dvd burner back in so the system does not find it. Where does the power plug go on the motherboard. I...

without knowing if it is a PATA or SATA I'll give you a best Guess.


in the lower right corner are 4 connectors...white,yellow,black,blue. These are SATA data transfer connectors. If the dvd burner has a similar connector there should be a cable from here to the burner and a power connector from the power supply to the back of the burner like F in the picture below. Either connector F and M should come from the Power Supply.
if the burner has a connector like F it is SATA, if like M then it is IDE and a flat ribbon cable would come off the IDE connector (BLUE) under the power supply 20 pin connector next to the Ram memory modules.

This is a SATA DVD Burner.
There should be a sata power and sata data cable

SATA POWER ADAPTER CABLE F is the power cable that attaches to the DVD the other end should be part of the power supply but if it isn't you would need this.

This is the SATA DATA cable would connect to the SATA point on the motherboard to the DVD burner, if the MOBO doesn't have this type connector on it you will need an ide to sata adapter
