The driver on my new LG GSA 2166D has got corrupted already. I can't find the drivers on LG's web site but have found them here, but can anyone give me step by step instructions on how to install them? I haven't done this before for this drive and don't want to do anything wrong.

Cheers

Driver? what OS you have? You don't need a driver.

Try to unistall the IDE channel you have the LG, from Device Manager, and reboot.

I've got Windows XP and the drive isn't recognized by Windows (Exclamation mark shown next to device in system device properties). I don't know if it's a driver or firmware but I need something to fix this!

Appreciate any help you can give me.

If you are running WinXP, you do not need a driver, and firmware will not make windows recognize your drive.

You have another problem.  Your drive is USB Correct?  Try the drive on another computer to see if it works with another computer, this will isolate to see where the problem lies.

Not sure what you mean about USB correct??? I have been using the drive fine for about a month without issues. I don't have it connected permanently but when I come to disconnect it I always do "safely remove hardware" before I unplug.

Any other thoughts?

Yes, how do you CONNECT it???? USB??? Firewire???

Anyway, it sounds as you have a driver problem with either USB or Firewire, however it connects.  Could also be a bad cable?  What did you do before it stopped working?

I have had a GSA 2166D for about 3 weeks now and was working great until about 5 nights ago. I have been setting things up to burn overnight so as not to be in the way of other tasks. then 2 nights in a row it failed to burn (using DVD+R disks). On the 3rd nite I tried a -R and it worked. So I tried that again the 4th nite and at the burn screen (power producer 2 gold) it gives an error message "this disk type is not supported". I tried a dozen disks and same thing. +R's, -R's, +RW's. Tried reinstalling the software twice.Gave up went to bed. Today called Lg. long phone call and he gave up. nice fellow though. Then tried to reinstall software again. Now it worked on a +RW, but stin does not work on the others. Got any ideas. cyberlink hasn't been any help either.

Thanks for that Antonio. I called Lg and the guy said my firmware is the newest. He spent quite a bit of time trying to solve this but couldn't . I have been e-mailing to Cyberlink, since they made the software, but so far they don't seem to have a clue. Today I was able to burn to a DVD+RW and then use the same cyberlink software to copy that disk content to the very +R disk that the software wouldn't recognise earlier for the burn. So then I thought I'd try to burn another video clip to a +R disk, and it would not recognise it. So the same software will recognise a disk if I' copying to it but won't recognise it if I'm burning a clip from my hard drive to it. Yet 5 days ago everything worked great. The extra step of copying to another disk takes too much time.

I notice that MP3 Mogul's, signature seems to indicate the 2166D has a firmware 1.02, I have 1.01 and my automatic updater hasn't updated it. When I was talking to LG he told me 1.01 was the latest.
Any thoughts?

I have firmware 1.02 for the 2166D.  I have a personal contact at the factory.

I have the same problem as happy dog.  It was working fine for the first 20 or so DVD burns, then all of a sudden it just wouldn't work anymore.  I set it to burn over night and shut off, but it had failed when I woke up.  I have tried all the recommended DVD's that the manual suggests and NOTHING works. DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW.  I can burn CD's no problem.  Can anyone help me!!?!?  Going insane!

I have been digging around for an answer to why it isn't working for me either, and I may have figured it out.  I have a thinkpad T60, and it has had some trouble recognizing random stuff via USB.  I got an USB hub the other day, and voila, things started working again.  Give it a try, a USB Hub is less than $10.

Gurney,

    Delete the USB hub on your laptop in Device Manager, reboot and let WinXP reinstall it.

Now make sure that "all" of your windows updates are current as there was recently a USB patch update.
