You may be having conflicts with usb devices. try temporarily removing all unnecessary devices from the usb ports. unplug and then plug the drive back in. you could try another port. if all ports are in use, then unplug another device, like the mouse and plug in to that port, then plug the mouse into the writers port. i had a similar problem with a wireless usb lan that stopped another device from being recognised. when i removed the lan and replugged the unrecognised device, windows recognised it. i obviously had to use the wireless lan, so i swapped that with the mouse and it worked.

My pc recognises my dvdram as cdrom, after re installing.


Nothing to worry about, it all depends on what type of disc is in the drive at the time.

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.)

I have a HP media centre pc, which has a lightscribe DVD writer/CD writer. It will only run certain cd's, most of the time it will not recognise there is a disc in the drive. The drive will start up,...


unfortunately it's a sure sign your drive is faulty, the noises are the laser trying to read the tracks, cd's can be easier read than dvd's because the tracks are wider apart, whereas dvd's data is packed tighter together and the reading is more difficult for a faulty laser, you will need to replace it or buy an external usb writer.

Lightscribe?


The 'anser' is no. LG model numbers for DVD writers that support Lightscribe end with an "L"; e.g. GSA-H42L.
