You might get lucky by removing the drive entirely from the "hardware list" (start->settings->control panel->system), then letting the OS find it automatically. if it doesn't work try Windows Update and choose "Custom" to get driver updates, then restart if it tells you to. If that doesn't help, and if you're sure that the drive worked as a DVD before, try this KB from microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320553

My lg cd-rom crn-8245b can burn cds, but it can play cds


hello mplsfanboy,

This drive is not a cd burner. It is only a 24X CD "reader". This means that it reads the cds but not write on a blank one. Here is a link to specs if you need:

I hope this answers your question. I thinkn you are trying to do something that is not supported by the drive.

Thanks!
