Ya at first I plugged it into the 6gb/s spot on the board (with the appropriate cord of course) because I wasn't sure if it was compatible. Once I noticed how long it was taking to open that disc I changed both the cord and the spot it was plugged into. Now it's just plugged into a regular sata plug.
Also, LG's website doesn't have an area for downloads. I scoured their website for about 2 hours last night. Nothing in their forums and not even google could tell me how to fix it. They do have a 1-800 number so I guess I can call them but I really don't want to talk to "Jeremy" in India, if all he is going to say is "did you put the disk in". (typing sounds) "did you put it in with the silver side down" (typing sounds).... Etc..
