LG GSA-H22N DVD-RW Dual Layer

My Burner doesn't work at all, I'm trying to burn CD'S, DVD'S and it does not work. I get the message: Windows can't start this hardware device because its configuration information is incomplete or damaged. Code 19.
I tried everything, but nothing works, please help me...
Thank you - Ana -

    I also have the same problem and the LG GSA H22N burner is like new, used as a reader maybe a dozen times since purchas a year ago.

    Sometime it won't read, it never burns, says it's a rom, sometimes shows me the files on a rw cd, then when I reinsert the disc again, it's says it's empty. A couple times the lg gsa h22n blocked window vista from starting up, had to boot in error mode, remove the hardware, there was an yellow exclamation mark next to it systed hardware. Gees I have tried uninstall and re-install, updating drivers, without success.

    I've had several other cd, dvd burners by lite-on, and phillips that worked for years and never had a problem.

    I bought the LG because it got good reviews. If you get one that works, I guess you're lucky. I'll never buy LG again. I'm disgusted with LG products. They should stick to making TVs and refrigerators.

    I have a the same burner as you, I can't find the drivers for it as I never got a cd to get the drivers.

I want to burn a karaeoke disc

The problem isn't the burner. You need karaoke software to burn and view cdg files. Below is a link to free karaoke software. Install the software (or a software package of your choosing) and re-burn your files.

It sounds like you don't have the proper driver installed for that device. Without the appropriate driver your software will not be able communicate with the device properly.
