DVD do not work

  woody 01:52 29 Nov 2009

I have a PC with Vista64 and Win7 dual boot.
It has two LG GH22LP20 DVD's.
They do not read/write in the Vista mode but do work in the win7 mode.
When I first loaded Vista/Win7 they worked with both OS and did not need extra drivers(plug/play).
I have uninstalled them in device manager and then restarted PC - still the same.
I have been to lg and downloaded the zip file but when I try to run it states no device found.

In vista

No CD/DVD or CD-ROM access is missing error Code 19, Code 31, Code 32, Code 39, or Code 41
Try this if the optical drives are not appearing in My Computer or Device Manager.
(This is sometimes caused by the removal of Roxio or other writing software.)
