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.

I bought a new computer neither of them had enternal disk drives so i use this lg slim portabale dvd writer i lost my disk to insall the software where can i get it

If you just want to use the LG external drive, then it will work with your new laptop (I presume it is a USB external drive). You don't need any installation software, because your new laptop will detect it and install the driver automatically.

I have a problem with my LG LW20 model hard is not detecting in to install os in my external usb hard drive without internal hard drive?

Well u will need a program called NLITE to make the flash drive a bootable device for 1. Thats only if the bios in that model has an option to "boot from usb device" if that model is older than 3 years old then this is not even going to be an option at all. Now the new minies out there now are capable of doing this but I dont think urs is. You really need to figure out why the HD is not recognised in the bios. Could it be a bad HD? Or a bad controller on the board. Either way its an older model a shop should be able to run down ur issue for $50-$75 bench fee.

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs

Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

Driver for lg ku250 phone

its very easy to solve this problem, since vista have new driver management unlike old xp's which need external drivers for all new hardware installed on it, a vista does not.

-- just plug the phone in a data service mode. (on usb connection manager)
-- when vista ask for driver just let the vista search for it.
-- and choose LG xxx modems if asked.

Voila i connected to internet.

for pcsuite like managing sms i dont have solution.
i didnt find problems when accesing my microSD. my laptop recognize it as external drive.
