Re: cd driver

I decided to update the XP (operating system). I did not know there was an updated SP3 package available. Well, this helped! The SP3 version of XP did recognize the LG Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter 22x device.

By now, you probably have knew this but nonetheless I hope this helps you.

Re: cd driver

You do not need a driver cd for installing the driver for cd/dvd drive if you are using windows xp or any of its higher version as all the hardwares are auto detectable in these operating systems....go to device manager and scan for hardware changes
