From the official site of the cd/dvd manufacturer
if not,well most of all optical devices are recognised without drivers...if not recognised,then might be  a hardware problem.

It does not appear that there is a driver for Windows 7. Sorry to say that to you. You can view your product support at the following link:

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Lg dvd burner gsa-1420b doesn't recognize it as a writer


Hi,
This may be a device driver problem.
uninstall then re-install your CD/DVD Writing Program. i,e Nero-Roxio et,c. it has to have The ATAPI device driver installed to function Correctly.

Need Vista driver for external DVD writer of LG model GSA-5169D


There aren't any such drivers.  The drive control protocols are standardized.  Just do Windows Update a few times and make sure the thing's connected when you restart storage subsystems (pretty much a reboot; though installing Nero will of course get things going if you don't love Vista built-in tools.)

I used a 6 year old dvd rom drive to load Vista x64 and it worked great... had the same problem with the * NEW * LG DVD RW Drive ... I think it's a marketing thing...

GSA-2166D recognized by computer but does not recogniz media?


Try removing the device from device manager, then reboot. Windows should then re-detect the device and re-install the drivers for it. If that doesn't work, try the device on another computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably defective.
