LG DVD Burner recognised as a USB Disk



I have just purchased a LG DVD Writer that is in a USB 2 Enclosure. I am running Windows XP Service Pack 2. I have set it up and it has been recognised as a USB Disk. Unfortunately, I cannot read or write to the disk. It is not even recognised by the file manager as a seperate drive. I have tried to populate the volume through device manager but it just says that the type is unkown and the drive is unreadable. I am all out of ideas. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

  1. Post on LG DVD Burner forum.

  2. Name the drive model name like GSA-4082B, GSA-4120B, GSA-4160B, GSA-4163B, and so on.

  3. What media have you tried?
