    it is a LG GSA-2166D.
    sorry about that, but i was on a page headded with my burners number & assumed it would be included in the post. i have resolved the issue, which if you are interested for future refference i did it by removing all cd/dvd drives in device manager & pluging it in fresh, it found it straight away. i believe the problem was a conflict with a vertual drive i had used to instal printer drivers etc.
    i have even upgraded the firmware now also.

Hi there,

I would like to know the model/maker of the drive you want to install. I need this information so I have an idea on what driver I can give to you.

Also what error message have you got on your computer.?

Let me know here again.

Thank you for using fixya.

How do i create a bootable usb flash drive from a windows bootable disc? basically my daughter has messed up her netbook and it now requires a fresh install, i have a windows disc but the netbook has no cd...

I have just done this and USB is OK, there is a link below.
But I assure you it is much easier to get a USB to DVD dongle attach a DVD, Using a SATA DVD, works great. set to Boot from USB-DVD and it will be simple, also download the EEEPC XP disk, it install a special XP for the EEEPC and has all drivers.
There is the torrent links for the ISO, download and burn to DVD If you already have it then it is all moot.

I it possible to uninstal Linux OS and instal Windows XP to the Aspire One ?

Yes you can install XP on that netbook.
Now because there is no optical drive in that netbook you will need an external CD/DVD drive connected to the netbook and an XP install CD.

You can get the Windows drivers from Acer here >>>>>>>

Just look under the netbook for the correct model number, select netbook, then Acer One and click on your model to download the drivers.
