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.

I bought a new computer neither of them had enternal disk drives so i use this lg slim portabale dvd writer i lost my disk to insall the software where can i get it

If you just want to use the LG external drive, then it will work with your new laptop (I presume it is a USB external drive). You don't need any installation software, because your new laptop will detect it and install the driver automatically.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?

Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

External DVD writer in Compaq V3424TU notebook

It is very simple to install a new internal DVD/RW. There is only one screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the module in. Remove that screw, slide the old unit out, and insert a new rom. Don't forget to replace the retaining screw.

Hope this will solve your problem, and please feel free to rate this advice.

Good luck
