Question about LG GSA-2166D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
When i plug in the device and it shows the 'found new hardware' in the tray it suddenly switches off the pc and restarts and repeats that while it's plugged.I tried plugging the device while the pc is off or like a plug-and-play device or even in different usb ports but it made no difference.I even downloaded service pack 1 in case of a problem with the usb drivers but still makes the same.I have windows xp.Does anybody has any idea of what i can do?
You will probably have to install Service pack 2 to overcome this problem, which you should install for security reasons anyway. If a driver came with the DVD writer, this should generally be installed first, then the writer connected into a USB port.

Tips for a great answer:
check the leads that attach your cd-rw make sure connections are secure
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps you
