Question about LG CRN 8245B (CRN-8245B) Internal 24x CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Only reads some disks.

I have two Dell Optiplex Gx280's with the CRN-8245Bs installed. Both are displaying the same problem. I am using the same cd media to burn disks via Iomega Hotburn software. Some of the disks are working fine and others are not working in the drive. The cd-rom is cannot read anything on the cd. I can take the cd to a completely different machine and it is read fine. Any suggestions? Thanks....

My cd rom drive does not read disk

This problem could be solved by updating the firmware. I have tried to find a reputable firmware update from the manufacturers site but have only come across them for that drive supplied by laptop manufacturers.
Who manufacturers your computer , is it a laptop and what model is it?

Will it read a cd written on a 52X CD drive?

It should have no problem provided the CD disk was not interrupted during the burning process.
The speed of the CD reader only means the data can be retrieved faster than a slower CD drive.

My cd rom not reading any cds

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD will not be read, therefore the error.

When this problem is beginning you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with cotton tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD drive unit.

CD ROM Drive doesn't read CDs!

These compact CD drives break more easily than standard desktop drives. Your drive will probably need to be replaced. First I would try removing and re-inserting the drive (maybe even a few times) There is probably one screw or a slide switch under the laptop to allow the CD drive to be removed. IF that does not help, have you cleaned the lens? You have easy access to the lens when the drive is open. If you have any camera lens cleaning equipment use that, if not 91% rubbing alcohol and a q-tip will work. Just don't rub too much or apply much pressure at all. Just lightly sweep away any dust. If none of the above work I would look for a replacement. The CD burner or DVD burner drives are typically more reliable and last longer.
