    the original drive failed on my PC and I installed a new LG GH22 internal
    drive this afternoon. On booting up I got an indicator telling me that new
    hardware had been found. I inserted a DVD and the player worked but my
    question is do I need to update the drivers for this hardware ( old player
    was DVD ROM). If I do, which website should I use ( tried looking on LG site
    was not much help)

    regardss

    You don't need specific drivers for this drive. There may be updated
    firmware at LG's website.

    If you got an included CD with this drive, you should have the LG ODD
    firmware auto-update program. It gets installed when you install the
    Cyberlink software.

    I did mail LG and was told that any drivers would have to come from MS.

    However, the drive did come with software ( a product called Nero) which
    when I try to install says I need to upgrade my XP software to install
    Directx 9.0c . I looked on the MS website and leant that this software cannot
    be removed once loaded and I would need to create a restore point before
    loading.

    Should I install DirectX 9, what are the pros and cons ?

    that is weird. when I checked the version of Direct X I had installed , I
    already have Directx 9 , any ideads why Nero would not recognise that I have
    version 9 ?

    Nero requires the most current DirectX 9.0c (delivered usually with
    SP2) and some of the .Net Frameworks (not sure which versions.)

    NOTE: The .Net Framework versions are not cumulative. Each version
    is a separate version.
