:hello:  I have an LG Vantec dvd burner but have misplaced the driver disc. It shows up on the comp as Drive H:/ but does not do anything. Is there a driver available on line that I can download to get this thing working on Windows XP? :(

The driver is already installed when XP installs. There is no stand alone driver, the device is plug and play.
However you can loose the function of the drive when some of the OS files become corrupt, and there is two ways to fix that.
1. left click start in the lower left hand of the screen
left click run
type regedit
left click OK
Now the registry editor will come up
double left click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
double left click on SYSTEM
double left click on CurrentControlSet
double left click on Control
double left click on Class
double left click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
look on the right side of the window for upper filters
right click on upper filters
left click delete
windows will then ask you to confirm deletion
click yes
look on the right side of the window for lower filters
if you do not see lower filters, you may be out of luck on this one.
right click on lower filters
left click on delete
windows will then ask to confirm deletion
click yes
Close all the windows that are open
restart the computer
2. do a repair install of the operating system using an XP installation disk. This does not erase your personal files. The directions are posted in this forum, sixth post from the top.

Thanks soundguruman, I tried your suggestion, but the burner still won't work properly.
