Go to Start/Control Panel/System/ Hardware /Device Manager/DVD/CD Rom Drives
double click on the Icon and click on the driver tab
click then on the update driver.

This will refresh the system.
But of course it may the the device itself that has failed
Only a replacement will cure that.

How do i reinstall drivers for lg slim super multi dvd rewriter

Hi Jason,

There are no drivers for the GP08NU6R. When you plug it in, your computer should pop up with a generic driver to make the DVD work. If the computer is not recognizing the drive when you plug it in to the back of the computer, then there is something wrong with the unit itself. Try an new cable.

Thanks Mark

Computer BIOS recognizes the SATA DVD Rewriter but Windows XP does not. The drive opens the loading door but it does not appear in the Windows XP explorer (My Computer).

Windows XP doesn't nativey support SATA. Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports sata to IDE emulation.
Comment back if you need further assistance.

This may sound stupid but make sure it is plugged in. Check the operating system and hardware requirements, if they don't meet the requirements, software will not recognize the device. Try different usb ports because sometimes computers have selective hearing and make sure your computer is initially recognizing the device when it is plugged in. If all else fails, don't try to install the software and head over to computer/my computer in the start menu. Right click and select properties. Click device manager in the hardware section or the bar to the left and look in the cd drive section. If you see your drive, right click and try any option about installing.

Can I put internal LG GH22 rewriter inside external GSA-E60N

First, open the external casing.
You'll find an "internal" CD/DVD drive, connected to an adapter, and the adapter connects to the USB cable.

Now, look at the adapter -- it could be a "parallel-ATA" interface, or it could be a "SATA" interface. The new CD/DVD drive will have to have the same connectors (data and power) as the adapter.

You might have to exchange the SATA device for a Parallel-ATA device.

If you have a parallel-ATA CD/DVD drive, look at the back of it.
There is a tiny jumper, and a few labelled settings:

* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)

Move the jumper to the 'MA' setting, so that the USB-adapter will recognize the CD/DVD drive.

Connect the drive to the adapter.
Close the case.
You're good to go!

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs

Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)


"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:
