LG GSA4167BA -Amazon purchase -no Manual?

Silly question but I’ve just purcahsed the LG DVD Writer and while I wasn’t necessarily expecting any connector leads there aren’t any instuctions/manual or CD. Nothing. I’ve tried looking on the LG web site for a manual and driver (do I need one with Win XP) but can’t see anything.
Any suggests anyone?
Thanks :confused:

DVD Writers do not require drivers. What is it you need a manual for?

Installation instructions. Master Slave settings that sort of thing.

You can find the manuals on LGs support sites.

You would think so wouldn’t you but dammed if I can find them!

Okay then.

  • Connect IDE cable to drive.
  • Connect power cable to drive.
  • Set jumper to master or slave position to match the position the drive is in on the IDE cable.
  • Screw drive in place.

It’s pretty simple. And these instructions aren’t even just for LG drives!

Thanks for that.

With regard “Set jumper to master or slave position to match the position the drive is in on the IDE cable”.

Is it obvious the position? There are marks on the case Master and slave I reckon are OK. What is CS or do I ignore this?

Thanks

CS is CABLE SELECT, you shouldn’t use it with more than 1 drive connected.

Thanks all. Piece of cake then!

You can have a master & a slave on each IDE cable.

If you plug it in as a master & one of the other devices (DVD/CD/HD) stops working, you know you need to set it as a slave :wink:
