Hi, why dont you seek up the drivers on the web site of the producer? How come its internal connected thru the usb? do you have properly installed your usb drivers anyway? Robert

LG dvd external drive not recognized by computer


ERROR 43? Check your SATA connection.
HERE'S HOW I FIXED MINE.
(IE. Computer tries to install driver for BD burner, but ultimately fails, and gives the message. "Unsuccessful" and/or "Microsoft Windows stopped device. Error 43") The SATA CONNECTION on my BD burner's EXTERNAL CASE had gone bad.
TO TEST IT. I used a SATA/IDE to USB Adapter Cable I bought for about $10 on amazon.
  • I unscrewed the external case to get at the internal drive, and plugged the SATA adapter cable directly into the internal BD burner drive (bypassing the case assembly), and plugged the other end into my computer USB port.
    • PS My BD burner POWER was working OK, so I left the big white 4pin power adapter connected to the original external case.

VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).

  • Now I either need to (1) Buy a NEW EXTERNAL case ($10 - $30), (2) install it as an internal drive (could get problematic if "ANYDVD" is installed) or (3) just leave it connected via the cheap adapter cable.
It's super EASY (& inexpensive) to TEST this before spending $$$$ on a new equipment.
Hope this helps someone. It had me miffed for a while there.

Need drivers for Installation of DVD640CE.


You don't need drivers if internal.
If USB , then system should "detect" it when plugged in.
Check power on to USB DVD.

First do windows update until everything is fully updated, pay careful attention to any hardware update that is needed in the left column and if that does not help go double click on MY COMPUTER select the drive( D) then right click, go to PROPERTIES then RECORDING set or change your defaults.
Hope this helps.

I just got a usb 2.0 external cd dvd rw burner drive for acer aspire one don't know how to connect has no instructions. Is this just a burner for cd dvd's or can I watch my dvd's with it?


If it's a DVD/CDRW It can play DVD's but not burn them. It can burn CD-R and CD-RW. It should just plug into your USB port. Make sure you have the enhanced USB 2.0 drivers for your operating system. Also you will need power for the external box the drive is mounted in. My external box needs 115 volt power. This hooks to an AC adapter, and then to the external box. You will also need Power DVD or some othe player. Windows media player will play DVD's with out some third party software.

Dvd player,do i have to unhook my internal one ,inordr to use an external dvd burner


No, You should start up pc and after it is to the desktop just plug it into a usb port. Windows should recognize and either load software or ask for disc. Usb devices has to be plugged in or removed live. That is while the computer is running.
