Hello,

It may be the operating system has not recognized all the ports, if you operating system is now ok, go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager, and look to bottom of the list to USB Controllers.

right click on them, and Uninstall all controllers and restart pc and see if all the ports are recognized and installed automatically.


Hope this helps,

You got a bad laser in the drive not the laser the reads the laser that writes and this does generally happen when a dvd ram drive goes. Recommend buying a new drive as a replacment laser is upwards of $90 bucks, thanks for using fixya please do accept and rate.

DVD Drive not being recognized as a DVD drive


That is not unusual.
Several of my CD/DVD drives are listed as CD drives.
They still play and write DVDs.
The problem is cosmetic and not worth spending time on.

Now if you are trying to play a DVD movie you are going to need a CODEC (Coder/Decoder).
Windows XP does not include a CODEC to play DVD movies.
I use Intervideo WinDVD.

I hope this helps.

Need Vista driver for external DVD writer of LG model GSA-5169D


There aren't any such drivers.  The drive control protocols are standardized.  Just do Windows Update a few times and make sure the thing's connected when you restart storage subsystems (pretty much a reboot; though installing Nero will of course get things going if you don't love Vista built-in tools.)

Driver needed for 2gb kingston usb


If it is Win XP with SP1 ( check this - tight click My Computer, click Properties and check if it is Service Pack 1), then you need the latest SP from microsoft (that is SP3).

WinXP not recognizing USB drives, the SP is the most common cause I  have seen. Update to SP3 and it should solve your problem.

Sounds like it may be a software issue. Have you tried using a different burning application? This may help.
