Hi I've recently bought a GSA 5163 DVD RW and after a lot of problems, have loaded the software. Unfortunately it hasn't been picked up by the device manager. Do I need a driver for it ? and where can I down load it from.

More information needed. Computer spec? and what software did you install. A DVD drive doesn't need drivers, how did you install it? Is it installed on the Primary IDE as a slave or on the Secondary as a Master or Slave etc... Did you set the jumpers?

Hi completealias and pj123 It's an external DVD RW and I'm on Windows XP and have 256 Mb ram. The software is Nero Express, Nero Backitup, InCD, Power Producer Gold, and Power DVD MPEG-2 Its installed through a USB port. I have played CD.s on it, but can't play a DVD

Are you sure that is what you have. The only LG GSA5163D that I can come up with is this one.

which is not external.

Hi pj123
I can assure you I have the above model, and it is external. I checked one of the links you posted, it lead to dealtime, and that was also external (revealed when I clicked on full spec).
I have managed to get it acknowledged after a lot of re-installing, my only problem now is the digital video I'm putting on DVD packs up after about 40 minutes. The box for buffer underrun protection is ticked, and I've copied at the lowest possible speed. So I guess it could be the "Emtec" DVD-R discs that I bought.
thanks a lot
