Check for both the xp cd and the dvd writer.It may happen that your dvd writer is not functioning or it may happen that your xp cd has got the scratches. Replace the cd and see whether it is working or not. In the earliest case u have to clean the lense with a soft cloth. Still if u are getting the same problem the it may be required to replace the writer.
plase make sure in ur mind without dvd also ur lg ls50 is worthy.
if ur despose it then there is no resale value will be but if u give to any cherity. if it is good then cherity trust will give u blessings.

You would be able to boot from the external drive but you will not be able to run an operating system from it. It would allow you to install another operating system if that is what you mean? If i understand you correctly though, you would like to say perhaps, have windows xp on your laptop and maybe run windows vista on your external? Maybe get to choose which one to run. This is not possible. Sorry. I hope this helps!
as soon as a dvd writer drive only starts to play cd's, cdrw's or only reports that you have a CDRW drive when inserting a blank DVD, the writers laser is worn out or faulty and no longer recognises dvd's, and so needs replacing i'm afraid, but as you may know not all dvd drives are hot swapable and need to be replaced by a repairer.
You need XP service pack 2 or later installed on your notebook. Does your notebook detect other USB drvices, if not your USB port on the PC is gone. If the USB prt is working and you have XP service pack 2 installed then you probably got a bum DVD drive so return it and get another.
