Need driver for tdk external cd/dvd writer model ded+880N


external writers are plug and play , they do not need a driver. the disk i think your referring to will only contain writing programs but there are many free writing programs on google search. just plug the writer into any usb port and windows will find it and install the drivers automatically

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

How do i increase my dvd rw drive speed


Not all "blank" disks are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
So, buy blank disks that support '48X' writing-speed.

Not all DVD-writers are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
Upgrade to a DVD-writer that supports '16X' or '32X' writing-speed.

Not all USB ports are alike.
USB 1.1 ports support 11Mbits/second,
while USB 2.0 ports are about 10 times as fast.
Check that your USB device is connected to a USB 2.0 port, not a USB 1.1 port.

LG GSA E 40 L External dvd writer not recognised


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.

Problem installing the device,keeps restarting the pc


You will probably have to install Service pack 2 to overcome this problem, which you should install for security reasons anyway. If a driver came with the DVD writer, this should generally be installed first, then the writer connected into a USB port.
