  • Well have you plugged it in? Does Windows find a driver for it?

    Have you tried http://www.lg.com/us/support/software-firmware-drivers entered your model number see what comes up?

  • Hi,

    More often than not when a device isn't working it is because the driver has become corrupted, please update the driver to the latest version or try compatibility mode and check the result.

    You can download the DVD writer driver from LG official website.

  • I had a similar but typical problem. I brought a Acer ultra slim laptop with external LG dvd writer to load OS if required from its CD cause it came with linux. What happened I lost that driver CD of LG in the huss fuss at the seller shop itself. Anyway I came home and connected the LG writer through USB port... enabled it in bios as boot drive. And everything goes fine as normal. OS installation got started as usual from my original Windows 7 installation disk. But suddenly half way between installation your installer asked for its driver CD & strictly refused to progress without it.

    Now what I didn't understand ... it was going nicely with default driver... what happened to it halfway? Then I have to copy it to usb drive from another machine then installed it from it. Now the problem is usb aint that safe from corruption as can be said about genuine installer CD. I went for LG support but there is no such driver there but a firmware for GP65NB60 (my drive too) but with SVG code NB60 instead of NB70 of mine. So that firmware upgrade don''t apply to my drive.

    Now why I am writing it all over here cause there wasn't any as such problem if your installer didn't get unexpected flue in middle of things. It had done already half the work fine with it default driver... now what was the problem for it reading rest of the data from OS installer CD? It could simply have let me skip that specific driver installation... No? That stalled everything for me that day till I got it copied to usb drive and the original problem remains the same even now. :)

    Thanks for hearing me out... my stupid bickering I mean. Cya .... Kaam toh chal hi raha hai jaissey taissey! ;)

    Bye bro!
