DVD Burner not recognized

Glenn,
I have found the problem with the DVD Burner. I can plug both the power and the USB in and nothing happens. If I pull the USB cable part way out of the burner and push it back in it will recognize it. However, if you restart the computer you have to repeat that procedure. I have already changed USB cables and that didn't help, so I believe the socket for the USB cable in the burner has a loose connection. Charles

LG dvd external drive not recognized by computer


ERROR 43? Check your SATA connection.
HERE'S HOW I FIXED MINE.
(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.

I was given a Gear Head Mobile slim burner with the 3 prong usb connector. Could you explain how the burner connects to my pc?


Hi slamalot35,


1. The content you are pertaining to is the USB 'Y' cable. like the image below.


pcsyke_125.jpg

2. Connect both USB Type A (Male) to your laptop or desktop it will require two usb ports. Sometimes your external drive can be detected if you plug only one USB Type A (Male) but most of the time it wont, it will require additional power.


3. Plug the USB Mini 5 to you external slim dvd and wait for your computer to recognize the device.


4. Double your My Computer and look for a DVD RW.



Hopefully this information helps.


Thank you for using FixYa.

IHOOK UP THE BURNER TO MY COMPUTER BUT NOTHING


Try a different USB port. Check if other USB devices are found when in that port.

Unplug other USB devices (keep your keyboard and monitor attached) and check if the device is recognized. Since you indicate that you used the front port, you may want to check that the cable between back of the port to the motherboard is fully seated on both sdes. Make sure that the OS hasn't been set to turn off the previously unused USB ports (this is a security and power-saving option).

I hope this helps.

I need the installation cd for my dvd rw


There isn't a installation CD for the E 40L. I have the same one and Windows has default drivers it will assign to it. The only thing that comes with the burner is bundled DVD burning software and DVD viewing software. The burner is basically Plug and Play (plug it in the usb and Windows will recognize it)
