Well you need to go to the website of the DVD manufacture and get the vista drivers for your device. Vista does not have native support for most hardware, and very little backwards compatability. I wish you success on finding the correct driver for your device. Thank you, Shuttle83

I bought a new computer neither of them had enternal disk drives so i use this lg slim portabale dvd writer i lost my disk to insall the software where can i get it

If you just want to use the LG external drive, then it will work with your new laptop (I presume it is a USB external drive). You don't need any installation software, because your new laptop will detect it and install the driver automatically.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?

Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.

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.)

Your Acerf C110TCI will not succesfully run Vista. It does not meat the minimum requierments. It may load, but you won't like it. Stay with XP and SP3, it will be much better.

External dvd writer

You would be able to boot from the external drive but you will not be able to run an operating system from it. It would allow you to install another operating system if that is what you mean? If i understand you correctly though, you would like to say perhaps, have windows xp on your laptop and maybe run windows vista on your external? Maybe get to choose which one to run. This is not possible. Sorry. I hope this helps!
