To a desktop computer?

Depending on the connectors you either have a 4pin power connector and a 40pin ide connector.

you should have both of those on all desktop computers.

the drive could also have those flat connectors, then you would need a SATA power connector and a SATA data cable.

if your motherboard doesn't have a SATA connector then you need to get a Pci - sata card

that will give you the sata data connectors. then you need sata power for it if your computer doesn't have a flat power connector then you need to purchase a converter.

the drive wont need anything else, just plug it in and it should work. remember when working inside the computer always unplug all cables.

if you use the 40pin connector then you might need to check on a jumper setting incase the drive doesn't work, you can read the jumper settings on top of the drive, and on the back of the drive you should have 6 pins close to the 40pin connector, there should be a small plastic / inside metal connector jumper, set it to the correct position, master or slave, if there is another device connected in the ide cable then set it to slave. if it doesn't work that way then set it to master.

if it doesn't work on either one, then get someone to look at it.

DVD-ROM means that it reads DVD's not that it burns DVD's. DVD-R,DVD+r, DVD-RW, DVD+RW are what you want to look for when it comes to DVD burners.

I need driver dvd-rom drd8120b

Do not need drivers with Windows XP. According to forum circa 2002, Windows XP Pro even supports the drive.
Drive when made was officially supported by:
Linux / Microsoft DOS 3.1 or later / Microsoft Windows 2000 / NT4.0 / Microsoft Windows 3.x/95/98
(No first hand knowledge)

I have a problem about my LG dvd rom drd 8160b I want to update my driver because other tape cant read

For less than $50, you can get a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer. So, rather than spending $50 to try to "fix" your DVD-reader, just replace it.

If I understand this correctly, you erased a cd of data and want it restored?

If this is true, then I am sorry to tell you that you will not be able to get that cd data back.

Reads CD ut no not DVD's

There is no quick solution for this problem unless you consider buying a new internal drive quick solution. (They are pretty cheap now a days) It really sounds like your DVD lens is no longer working, which would cause no problems with reading of your CD's. Sorry for the bad news, but look on the bright side! You can upgrade to a lightscribe DVD burner!! :D:D (no more sharpies on the DVD/CD's you burn)
