Windows 7: LG portable usb dvd writer shows up as unknown usb device

20 Jan 2016   #11

Windows 7 x64, ultimate/pro/home, SLES x86 & ia64

this usb dvd reader has failed to install on 4 or 5 different windows 7 computers i have tried it on, ranging from windows home to windows ultimate. same thing, unrecognized usb device.
all computers i have tried this reader on have no other problems, so i am fairly confident it is not a missing driver.

I was thinking a windows update might have caused this,
but after a clean install before doing any updates this reader showed up as unknown device.

what i wouldn't mind doing is updating the firmware on it if possible.
if anyone can provide a link to firmware that would work, i would be grateful.
