New Install Vista 64 LG GH20 DVD-RW driver

I have a new install system with the following configuration -
Processor - AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core 6000+
HDD - SATA1 Vendor WD 320Gig
Memory - 2Gig
DVD/RW - LG 20x (GH20) SATPI

When I try to install Vista 64 it is very slow and after about 2 hours it says that the driver for the DVD needs to be updated. This is the 2nd drive that I've tried and the 1st drive had the same response. Things I've tried -
Updated the BIOS
Changed the SATA cables
reset the CMOS
changed DVD drives (the 1st one was a Sony DVD)
downloaded all of the MOBO drivers, but they are not accepted

Packaged software

Since you are a bit new to building PC's, there are a few things you need to look out for including:
Improperly installed (loose) RAM module
Loose or unplugged cable (check ALL connections!)
Inadequate power supply for your system
RAM memory that is not compatible with your MOBO
Bad/Wrong driver

So we can assist you further it would be great if you would list all of the parts you installed including part numbers where possible. Also tell us what happens when you try and boot the system now.

Try this Fix Driver Solution: In Windows Start/Control Panel/ Device Manager/ and search through the list for the element of distress. If it's Audio, it is in the Sound/Video/Game Controllers whereby left clicking on that section will open up a window indicating your electronic devices. A video Camera/Sound Source may show up and if you Right Click on that line you get a message Update Software? You will get another option the Search On-Line (you must have internet access for this feature) and say yes, and allow a search to ensue. If you have the Best Driver installed a message stating so will appear; if not you will get an updated driver and it will be installed for you automatically. The other method is to go to the Manufactures Web Site and Support area. Input the necessary data (Model, etc.) and look for Drivers. Update ALL new drivers at the same time and install them accordingly.

You've got a toughie here but I'm wierd enough to either answer corretly or you trash my ratings.

So. here's the sense of it Load all W7 drivers possible for your stuff. It was all built off Vista anyway. and If you're not running Vista Ultimate 64 Bit while you're messing around, you should be ballsy enough to ask for the consultant pre-activated disc of same so you can play right or quit bitchin'

I need LG GP08LU10 Driver for Mac please...

Unfortunately, LG does not offer drivers for their products for the Mac platform. You can use a program like Parallels to run Windows as a virtual computer on your Mac and install this optical drive under Windows.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Can't get new DVD RW to work

Go to the Manufacturer's site of the burner and look for firmware, download and install -and to make sure it (the burner) is compatible with you operating system vista or XP
You should have received a disc with the burner it, even if you are going to use some other burner program.
If you can't find what you need, write again with the name and model of burner and the operating system you are using.
Hope this helps... Please leave rating...
