DVD-RW problems

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Sm9zaA==?=, Aug 21, 2007.

  1. My LG GSA-H50-L DVD writer has worked in the past on my Vista 64bit
    system, but has now decided not to work. I didn't do anything with the
    harware. The power is still connected, and if I disable all the drivers,
    vista recognizes the ATA device and attempts to install the drivers. At that
    point, it says it fails, and in device manager, it reports that it doesn't
    work because the drivers are missing or corrupted. No software comes with the
    drive b/c I thought it uses generic drivers. Is there somewhere I can
    download these generic drivers so that it can install them next time?

  2. Josh:
    The first thing you should try is a system restore to a prior state ("the
    past") when your DVD writer was working Ok.
    If that doesn't work, try this KB.
