I am trying to get a LG GSA-H22L working under Windows Vista. The GSA-H22L is recognized by BIOS and Windows Vista detects it as new hardware; however, Vista can’t locate a driver for this drive. I have read several posts that state that drivers are not necessary for burners; however, Windows Vista is reporting that it needs a driver for this device, but can’t find one. Even after Vista checks Windows Update it still can’t find a driver for the GSA-H22L, it can’t offer any solution, and the drive doesn’t function (properly) in Vista.
This drive was functioning properly under Win XP Pro on the same PC before I upgraded to the Vista O/S. Some features on this drive also worked immediately after I upgraded the O/S to Vista; however, I recently moved the drive to the Secondary (Master) IDE controller and the GSA-H22L stopped working. Vista keeps detecting the GSA-H22L as new hardware and Vista wants to load a driver, but it can’t locate one.
Does anyone have any idea how to get this drive working under Vista. Or, does anyone know whether this drive is actually compatible with Vista?
