My MacBook doesn't recognize my new portable LG Super Multi Drive--GP08 Lite...There's no icon, and things aren't burning...Do I need to download a driver? Why doesn't this product tell...

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

My cd is broken inside my lG cd rom what should i DO Now


Thank you for your query

If you look at the side of the CD rom drive i.e. where the button is that you push to open and close the CD drive there will be a very small hole. If you open up a paper clip and poke the end into that hole you will notice the drive will pop out, once the drive has come out all you need to do is open and remove the broken CD

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank you again

I have a Dell Latitude D530 laptop - does it have a DVD writer?

According to your Service Tag, your machine was shipped with an 8X DVD -ROM & 24X CD/RW Combo Drive, so yes you will need to purchase a DVDRW drive. There is a single layer burner that 4.7GB, and a dual layer model for 8.5GB. They can be purchased from Dell directly, or eBay, Amazon etc (same drive fits D630, D830 etc) and there is a rectangular button on the lower right hand side of the drive that you press in, to pull out the existing CDRW, and simply slide the new drive in. You will need a Burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn DVD's onto the new drive.

Disk storage medium stuck in DVD-Rom.

If there is a disc stuck in the drive, removing the drive from the case is not necessary. Just take a paperclip and stick it in the manual release hole in the front of the drive.
