Windows 7: Unknown Device

Unknown Device

I have recently installed Windows 7 and everything is working fine except one of my devices. My LG External Super Multi-DVD Rewriter is being recognized by my machine as an unknown device. I get Error Code 43 and when I try updating the driver, nothing changes. Please help! Thanks.

Hi and welcome BC

You wouldn't by any chance be running a mac, would you? that error code is almost exclusively from there. Anyway. IN device manager go to hte unknown device. right click>properties>details>use pull down>find hardware IDs. copy that string into google and the string should point to the MFR.

Good luck and let us know if you need help with that

The "Unknown Device Identifier" worked, but I can't seem to locate the driver online. Any other ideas?

Hi


Sorry usually hardware strings are more enumerated. I went looking for a driver for it but the best I ould come up with is the us support site. here>>>>LG Product Support The error 43 simply means windows stoppedthe device because it reported a problem

Sorry I couldnt help

The Unknown Device Identifier program gave me the following info:
Vendor: LG (HLDS)
PnplD:VID_152E&PID_2507
Device: USB Device

I'm sorry to bother you all with this, but I'm what you call "computer illiterate"

Thanks again
