I recently upgraded my Windows 7 32bit to 64 bit ( running 6 gig of ram ), and one of my CD-DVD drives is not being recognized by Windows. I have it set as the slave, and before I changed to 64 bit, it worked. I think it is no finding the driver. IF this is the case, can anyone direct me to the location for the driver, or if one can, give me some advise.

I looked on the LG site, and no luck. Thanks

Optical drives do not require drivers now with the new OS's.
You said:

Does this mean it is on IDE ribbon with another drive connected to it?
When you made it a slave was this before or after the Win 7 was installed?
Lets see what is showing in a couple of places.
Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter

In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
