Can PLEASE somebody help me: my new Windows 8 machine (Acer) does not have a dvd r/w, so I bought an external one (LG GP30). I stick it in (USB), nothing happens. I am unable to figure out what is missing, and don' find any information about a suitable dvd driver to download from anywhere.....THANKS!

According to LG, the GP30 is not supported on Windows 8.

Go here:

Click the "Technical Specifications" tab.

Click the "+" sign next to "Operating System"

You will see that Windows 8 is not on the list.
