LG GSA H55N Drivers

I have recently moved and have \'lost\' several CDs, one being the Driver/Utility CD for the LG GSA H55N DVD unit. I am trying to install VISTA on a new drive and motherboard and it is requiring device drivers for the DVD unit. Driver Detective helps not as the machine is not on-line. I have not been able to find a source to purchase or download this CD. Can anyone render assistance please? Thanks.

Re: LG GSA H55N Drivers

Welcome to the forum

Vista doesn't need drivers for CD/DVD drives, it uses a generic "one-fits-all" driver which comes with the OS.

Where is Vista asking for a driver? And, is there a yellow exclamation mark next to the drive in Device Manager?

Re: LG GSA H55N Drivers

Hi and Welcome!

there are no separate drivers for optical drives since they are part of the operating system.
Perhaps Windows is failing to load drivers for the controller your drive is connected to, but this is independent of the drive.

So you need to find out, what controller is used and provide the correct drivers for that controller.

Re: LG GSA H55N Drivers

Could you tell us something about your hardware, especially your motherboard and IDE controllers?

Re: LG GSA H55N Drivers

Hi,

normally, I would expect Win7 to have working drivers. Have you already tried Windows Update?

Perhaps these chipset drivers do work:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_...bit_15.49.html (64bit)
