Question about LG GSA-H42N 18x DVD RW DL IDE Drive (Black) Burner

1 Answer

Error (Code 10) with LG GSA-H42N

High I have many problems with my PC but the main one I want to fix is the DVD-RW (its one of those Super Multi DVD-RW) and "My Computer" does not recognise it but when I go to "Device Manager" it has a explanation mark next to it saying (Code 10). I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, looked up manufacturer site and download new driver, but that does not resolve the problem.

When I reinstalled it it re detected it and tried downloading new driver but failed and mentioned try contacting manufacturer or something like that. When I tried manually installing the driver I found the one I needed but when I downloaded it and ran the program it asked for its location - because the computer does not show its location, I do not know. I really need you help on this, my OS is Windows Vista. I have not tired looking under the cover to check connection but I will give it a check to see. Can anyone help???

    Thanks for that, It done the trick and when I uninstalled it and rebooted the PC again it downloaded the new driver successfully and can now be detected, much appreciated :)

I lost the drivers what can i do?


well you really don't need drivers for xp+ systems. it should automatically be recognized. you just have to get cd/dvd burning software like Nero.
