External DVD burner trouble



Hello there to all, I am new here and would love some help. I have a Lite-on dvd external burner/writer and my laptop that is running vista and does not get seen when I connect it via USB. I have searched online for help but to no avail. Can some one help me get my vista to recognize my dvd burner please? It used to work fine before with my XP system but I got my vista in 2008 and I am now having troble trying to use my burner again with vista.

I await help from all. :frowning:

Which model LiteOn external DVDRW drive do you have? Does it have a power brick that connects to the wall for power, or does it pull power from the computer only?
