Question about LG GSA-2166D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

2 Answers

I'm trying to install an LG GH22 22x Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter drive on my computer, because the old CD drive it was bought to replace quit working. However, I can't get this one to even start working. It doesn't show up under My Computer (I have Windows XP Home Edition for my operating system), nor does it do anything when I insert the installation disk, other than make the whirring noise you normally hear right before a drive begins working. I know it's got power, because it's opening and closing, as well as the power button is lit up. I went into the Device Manager, and it says that the drive is missing a driver - where can I go to download it? I've looked around some, but I can't find any. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

There is no driver necessary , check out that you have provided the proper jumper settings and connect the data bus correctly , press it tightly . that will solve your problem . if you are using more than 1 device on your bus then the jumper settings are quite necessary.

SOURCE: Need Driver for LG GH22 22x DVD Drive

Remove the new drive -- and look VERY closely on the back.
You'll find a "two-by-four" grid of gold pins, probably with a black "jumper" between a pair of pins.

Look closely at the labels above each pair of pins:
* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)

Move the jumper from its current position to one of the other pins.
Reinstall the drive, and reconnect the power and data cables.
Check that the other-end of the data-cable is snugly connected to the motherboard.

Windows should now "detect new hardware", the next time you start-up.

SOURCE: LG GH22 dvd writer - not reading

I went to the BIOS and activate the relevant SATA socket to which I connected my DVD writer. At reload windows detected a new device and all is well; No driver is needed.

SOURCE: I just had an internal super multi dvd rewriter

in order to play music, it has to be pluged into directly into your sound car iva a special 4 pin conector (only one drive can be pluged in at a time). copying files is easy, just drag them into the drive folder just like copying stuf to a flash drive. but instead of pushing the eject button, right click in the folder ans select eject. this will start the copy procedure. to copy music use the rip tab in windows media player. for copying dvds you will need a third party program. i recomend VLC media player, it's available free from download.com

How do i reinstall drivers for lg slim super multi dvd rewriter


Hi Jason,

There are no drivers for the GP08NU6R. When you plug it in, your computer should pop up with a generic driver to make the DVD work. If the computer is not recognizing the drive when you plug it in to the back of the computer, then there is something wrong with the unit itself. Try an new cable.

Thanks Mark

My LG GH-22LP20 Super Multi DVD Rewriter cannot read anymore DVDs. It can only read CDs. How do I solve this? Help!


It's "dying" -- replace it. If it is an "external" casing, with an "internal" DVD-writer inside, you could open the casing, remove the "dead" drive, buy a new drive, and install it into the case.

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.
