Can it be seen in Device Manager?

Right click My Computer.
Left click Manage
Left click Device Manager

All hardware should show up here, do you see it? How do you have it connected, USB2.0? Through a hub? Try plugging it directly to the computer through a USB connection you know works. Check the Device Manager again. If you don't see it, its a bad cable or connection. If you do see it but can't access it, try to right click it, then Properties. Upate drivers this way, make sure you have an internet connection, so it can connect to the web.

You may need to format it, this can be done through the Device Manager as well. Check your documentation for proper setup.

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.

Dont have the intalation disc


Here is the info from Sony's Website.

Drivers for External Optical Models Operating System: Windows Date: 04/18/2008 Do you need a Driver? (External models)

All Sony Optical external units are plug & play with Windows, no drivers are required for detection.

If you are having issues getting your external drive detected in Windows, please try the following:
The drive needs to be connected directly to USB 2.0 or I-link port (depending on model type) on your computer. Please note that the drive is not supported if connected to a dock or a hub.
Also please check the following if you are have trouble detecting:
  • The drive needs to be the only external device connected to the system. Please ensure there are no other USB devices connected.
  • Try a different USB port on your computer.
  • Try a different USB cable
  • Try the drive on a second computer system if possible.
  • Ensure you have the latest BIOS and Motherboard updates from your PC manufacturer.
  • Ensure you have the latest Windows updates from Microsoft.
I hope that this helps in some way. Please let me know if you need more help after these steps and I will try looking eleswhere. asnowman
