SOURCE: Need Vista driver for external DVD writer of LG model GSA-5169D

There aren't any such drivers.  The drive control protocols are standardized.  Just do Windows Update a few times and make sure the thing's connected when you restart storage subsystems (pretty much a reboot; though installing Nero will of course get things going if you don't love Vista built-in tools.)

SOURCE: LG GH22 dvd writer - not reading

I had the same problem with the GH22 Internal drive on vista. Assuming this is the only cd drive you have, just go to the device manager and remove/uninstall anything under "DVD/CD Rom Drives" then restart. It should get picked up and recognized properly. It took a couple of restarts to work. For refrence, I only have the LG GH22NP20 installed, what appears in device manager are 2 items... (1)HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 SCSI CdRom Device... (2) KU1051Q EAG855E SCSI CdRom Device... Incase you have multiple cd drives, this should help tell em appart. Enjoy. IDK399

You should not need any kind of third-party drivers if you are using XP or Vista (and possibly older MS software).

How to use lg writer gp50nb40 on mac


Just plug in the drive and burn away! Mac's do not require specific drivers or add-on software to read or burn disks. If there is a specific type of disk or media (Movie, Documents etc.) you want to burn let me know those specifics and I can let you know how to do it.

I appear to need a driver so that I can use my External DVD Writer Mode 1 SE-SO84 on my iMac using the Mac OS 9.2 operating system so that I can use its full potential. At present it will read DVD's...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. You don't need a driver since the mac computer was able to recognize the DVD and CD's. If you want to use the DVD writer to burn images on a blank cd you need to use a burning software. Can you please try use the software below and see it if will work.

Please let me know if this will work or not so that we can continue troubleshooting. Thanks

External acer dvd rw drivers required


Hi

if you are connecting a external dvd writer assumably via usb i dont think you need drivers as
windows should normally find and load the dvd writer when connected to the usb

if this is the case
please try at least 2 different usb sockets

leave the writer in the usb and do a restart
if windows still do not reconise the writer
please go to device manager
go up to the top to the tabs
and hover your mouse over them until you find the one that says
scan for new hardware
then click the scan for new hardware
windows may or may not at this stage reconize the writer
then leaving it pluged in do another restart
and hopefully windows should now reconize the writer

hope this has helped you
many thanks

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer

My dvd writer was working perfectly but when i format my wondow now it is playing only cds & when i insert a dvd it is not giving any response & my driver is also showing as cd-rom


When you formated you erased the driver you need to use your dvd writer as a dvd writer and player. If your dvd-rom came with a cd use it to reinstall the driver and program it uses. Otherwise you can search for your driver thru the manufacturer website or go to www.driversguide.com and find it there.

Dvd writer


You need to first click on my computer. In the folder section right click on my computer. Left click on properties, then device mangager, then hardware. From the list click on your dvd writer to see if it's working properly or if your computer even reconizes it. It may also be disabled. If it's disabled enable it. You will also need to update the driver or reinstall it. If none of that works, you need a new dvd writer.

My LG Combo is not working after i have installed another LG Dvd Writer


I am assuming they are both on the same ide cable. If so set both of the jumpers to CS (cable select) and try rebooting the machine.

If this doesnt work you might have the bios configured to say there is no drive on that ide channel location. If the first option doesnt work let me know and I might be able to help further
