Question about LG SecurDisc 20x External Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive

1 Answer

LG GSA-E60L doesn't work...

...after my computer crashed. I reinstalled/reformatted the computer operating system, but lost everything that was in the previous system. I'm using PC Windows XP Home Edition. I HAD the XP Professional, but the disc I was given to reinstall is the Home Edition. I downloaded the Service Pack 3 from MicroSoft, and I even got my Pro Tools studio back up and running, but the LG DVD Rewriter/Player doesn't have any of the software in it. I don't remember having a cd for the software, and if I did, I don't know what it would say on it. I have LOTS of cds. Can you help me out here?

    The software that WAS in the LG does NOT appear for me to reload for operation; ie. SecurDisc, Nero, InterActual Player, Cyberlink DVD, Safari...nothing is there! I disconnected and reconnected the LG, but I get nothing at all. I put a dvd in the player but it won't play.

The drive needs to be reformatted and ready to start over.
When that has been done, you should be able to boot from the CD with the operating system on it automatically. The startup code is on the CD and tends to do everything for you.

Notebook DVD is not working

You need to take the drive out and put it back in. Try doing a BIOS update if one is available or simply reinstall the Operating System. If this does not work either then you will have to replace the DVD drive.

Have an LG REWRITER MOD GSA-H22L AND AM WANTING TO INSTALL but have no instruction manual and am not sure if jumper is correct for master and there is a 3 wire cable that was not on are used by my old unit...

I replaced my old drive in my Windows XP PC with a used LG GSA-H22L.
Mine is a setup as a Slave on the Secondary IDE Port.
I found the manual in PDF format using Google (but I can't remember where?).
So, I put a copy up on my Microsoft Windows Sky Drive site for you to view and/or download it here:
You should find everything you need to install your GSA-H22L drive in this manual.
BTW - that 3 wire cable is probably for hooking up the drive audio to your PC's sound card/circuit.

It is possible there is a bottle neck in your system stopping it from allowing the dvd to play.

The DVD drive is only one part of it. There is the cable to the motherboard, CPU load, memory load, Video card being used etc.

If the drive is connected to another DVD/CD drive on the same cable, try unplugging it first and see if it improves. Also if it is running on the same cable as a hard drive, your main hard drive in particular, then try to get it onto it's own cable.

Check the software running it is not in software mode using it's particular config section within the program as well. If your video card supports hardware mode for video playback, then that will reduce system power being used by the CPU and the memory systems.

Get computer running!

If it's just ethernet and (I assume from colour, you mean the graphics/video card) you will need to install drivers for those devices.

Win 98 is a mongrel of an operating system, which doesn't take much to corrupt it. It's possible you may have to reformat the HD and reinstall it.

You may still require individual drivers for the devices.

If they are all onboard the MB, you may be able to download them from the intel website.
