I just bought a GH20NS15 but I cannot get it to recognize any disk. Has anyone else had that problem with this drive?

I should add that I installed the raid drivers for my mobo but no joy.

I am running WINXP SP3.

I have vista 64bit with the same drive. I bought my drive off OverClockers UK a week or so ago.
I can get the drive to do basic things like read and write but it is doing it very slowly. I hav not yet tried to burn anything with it.
The device is using the basic Vista driver for cd drives [C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\cdrom.sys] but I wanted to update it to the proper LG drivers.
I downloaded [GH20NS10_EL01(EW).zip] from the LG website but I can’t seem to get the things to work. It seems to expect there to be a previous LG driver there for it to replace and it can’t find the target drive.

I suspect that there is some sort of software which comes with it but I was not provided with (it came in bubble wrap…).
I have not tried any RAID drivers- (aren’t they for automatic server backups? :confused:)
Please can you give me some advice.

Mithridates[/QUOTE]There is no specific driver from each manufacturer for each drive. They all use the stock Windows drivers, which are meant to be compatible. There are some specialized cases where you’d need a special driver for an optical drive, but you would be well aware of it. This is not one of those cases.

What you downloaded was FIRMWARE, which is [roughly speaking] the equivalence of what a BIOS is to a motherboard. It allows the drive to do all of what it does.

RAID is…well, Google what RAID is. But, basically, a lot of modern SATA controllers are configured to work more with hard drives, and are optimized for RAID support and enhanced hard drive performance. Some SATA controllers still retain a fairly good compatibility with optical drives.

Can you start off by telling us what your system specifications are?

In order for sata dvd burners to work correctly RAID function in the mobo bios has to be disabled. :wink:
