Question about LG SecurDisc 20x External Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive
...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?
Disc drive has nothing with drivers it works in almost any operating system...check the power and data cables
