Question about LG (GSA5163D) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

LG DVD ReWriter Gsa-5163D doesn't work with Vista

Can't install soft from solution disk because it's old - made for previous Windows(XP, 2000 etc). So system doesn't see connection. It was no problem with XP. Now seems I'd better try to begin to look for downloadable Nero. Am I right?

    Thanx! It was fun to understand that upgrade will cost for me much more than to buy another rewriter which will be working with Vista properly. In my country it doesn't worth to setup yourself using card No in e-net shoping

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...

Greeting I just bought "LG


Greetings... I think your having a problem with your hardware DVD R/W.
based on your observation...
1) The dvd rom drive is detected on your windows xp and by pushing open/close button still working... " this indicate that the power and SATA / IDE cable was properly connected.
2) And you've said "NOT SPINNING".... "means you have undergo testing by touching or listening DVDrom drive while the disk was inside after closing the disk tray which is right"

Therefore your DVDrom drive was defective... you can also check by opening the metal cover to see if the disk was spinning and if the laser of optical lens released a red light.

I have an LG GSA-E50L slim type DVD rewriter and Mac Snow Leopard doesn't recognize the burner? Do I need a driver from LG? What should I do?


You could try running a virtual Windows computer (using Parallels or VMWare) on your Mac. The LG site has drivers for Windows 2000, XP and Vista. There are no Mac drivers listed. Otherwise you need a different computer or burner.

I am sorry that I can't be of more help but the owner's manual indicates that this product was made for Windows systems only.

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.)

Cannot back up DVDs on LG Super Multi 20x DVD rewriter


You definitely should call LG--your new gaget isn't working, and it is under warranty. Or try going to their website to see if they have any software upgrades--sounds like you have a bummer, and perhaps a reinstall from their website will do the trick.
