Can you run the Hitachi-LG GCC-4482B in a windows 8.1 machine?

Okay, quick question; as inexpensive as DVD/CD writers are Nowadays, why would you want to use something so....outdated on a WIndows 8 Machine? Oh nevermind; it would take too long to explain and your brain obviously can't handle the input as of right now. YES you CAN use it on a Windows 8.1 machine. The Machine will LIKELY have SATA ports on the motherboard, so you would have to probably get an IDE to SATA Adpater Card.

How do i install my lg bh16 driver in windows 8

You don't...... installation of the drive and it's support are handled automatically by the OS during bootup. This support will only allow it to read data or music disks. For other applications you will need compatible dvd decoding and burning software. Is the drive listed in My Computer?

TSSTcorp TS-L632 (B) drive is writing CDs, reading DVDs but not writing DVDs.

First check that your drive is indeed a DVD writer and not a 'hybrid' i.e. CD writer and DVD reader. If it is, go on the manufacturer's site and see if they have Win 8 compatible drivers - Win 8 is a fairly new OS so they may not have had time to get a new one out.

Lost install cd and new PC is windows 7

The manual says this camera's USB connection is only compatible with Windows 98. It may be that Windows 7 already has the drivers necessary. Otherwise it is probably going to be easier to copy videos to the PC by simply taking the disks out of the camera and putting them into the computer's DVD drive, or taking out the memory card and putting it into a card reader on the computer.

If it is the Hitachi editing and playback software that you want to install, then there are alternative programs that will do the same job that can be downloaded for free from the internet. Try

Drive can not read Dvds

I suppose that you have windows XP. Pls follow these steps Clean the disc - Clean the disc with a disc cleaning kit or by gently wiping the silver side of the disc from the center outward with a dry, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth. Check the disc for damage - Remove the disc from the drive, and then examine the disc for scratches or cracks. Try a different disc drive - If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer. Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive -Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive.
  • A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive.
  • A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs.
  • A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front.
Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers - If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

DVD Ram Disks

Sounds like it's just fried... Sorry... There is a universal driver for CD-rom(same with DVD-Rom drives) drives that windows uses.. so if it doesn't work it's not cause of the drivers(especially if you just reinstalled windows or it was just repaired since it reinstalls the drivers from the cd)
