I just purchased and installed the LG 22X Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter and it does not seem to be working I get and error saying Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

It could be a fault with the hardware, and may need to be sent back.

First test though is to give it a seperate power source.

Try using a seperate power connector from your power supply, and not one sharing with fans, etc to see if its a power issue.

Is it recognised in the BIOS? Can you open and close the drive? (i.e, its recieving power)

Also try using another SATA port/cable on your motherboard (or if its IDE, another IDE lead) to check this also.

Try plugging it into another computer.
