There are things you can possbly do to resolve the issue:
1. try doing the system restore.
go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. choose a highlighted date that you believe was a day earlier prior to the firmware update and then continue with the process. no data or document will be erase in this process only the updated installed programs will be removed. if after doing that still it will not work try doing this

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK. Registry Editor starts.
Step 2: Delete the UpperFilters registry entry loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); 1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet. 3. Expand Control, and then expand Class. 4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. 5. In the right pane (topic area), click UpperFilters.

Note An UpperFilters.bak registry entry may also appear. To delete the UpperFilters registry entry, you must click UpperFilters and not UpperFilters.bak. 6. On the Edit menu, click Delete. 7. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm the deletion of the UpperFilters registry entry: Are you sure you want to delete this value?The UpperFilters registry entry is removed from the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} registry subkey.

Note Do not exit Registry Editor. You must have this program for the next step.
Step 3: Delete the LowerFilters registry entry loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); 1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet. 3. Expand Control, and then expand Class. 4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. 5. In the right pane (topic area), click LowerFilters.

Note An LowerFilters.bak registry entry may also appear. To delete the LowerFilters registry entry, you must click LowerFilters and not LowerFilters.bak. 6. On the Edit menu, click Delete. 7. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm the deletion of the LowerFilters registry entry: Are you sure you want to delete this value?The LowerFilters registry entry is removed from the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} registry subkey. 8. Exit Registry Editor.

you can also try this: uninstall the driver. before doing it try to download the driver first

Upgrading firmware can be very simple or completely wreck a drive. If the process is interrupted whilst upgrading it can become corrupt and goodbye drive. Even something as simple as a screen saver enabling during upgrade can cause problems. No programs are supposed to be running in the background and basically no mouse movements or keyboard activity should take place until the upgrade is finished. You could try upgrading again but only if Windows can see the drive. You say the writer doesn't work, do you mean Windows recognizes the drive but you can't write a disk or it just won't show up on My Computer? Another thing, wherever your son got the upgrade from it may have been corrupted during download and sad to say some lunatics actually write upgrades to purposely wreck drives. So unless you can get windows to recognize the drive it's time to buy a new one and maybe a new son at the same time :-) BMW

Which OS do you use for your PC (Win98, Winxp etc..) ? Which exactly firmwaer (or you mean software) did your son upgraded ?

Posted on May 26, 2006

  • Dov Dror May 27, 2006

    As a first step,go to the device manager (let me know if you don't know how to do it)find there the CD-RW (under the DVD/CD-ROM drivers). Double click on it, click the driver tab ,then chose the Uninstall option and operate it.
    Next step- go back to main device manager window, click on the action tab and then "Scan for hardware changes".
    The system should find your CD-RW and re-install the drivers.
    Check if it solved your problem.
    In case, it doesn't solve your problem, repeat all steps includes the drivers uninstalling and then re-install the CD-RW with the original software CD you received with it.
    Good luck !

Does GCE-8481B105 have the ability to burn if upgraded?


The synopsis is not good for this old drive. As far as I can see there are NO firware updates to convert to DVDRW (I have never seen any CDRW converted by a SW update). The firmware update from LG is here: http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-GCE-8481B

Some commentary from the web:
"My 8481B completely shut down a while back and wasn't burning anything.. It would just sit for 15 minutes, desparately trying to burn, making strange noises, and not responding at all. So, I niavely went to the website looking for updated firmware, ended up flashing to 1.05.... and my drive did actually start to work after the flash, which was an improvement... however, I don't want to be using an unapproved firmware "downgrade" not designed for this particular drive, and I did have some BIOS issues, so now I'm trying to get my drive back to 1.10. (I'd like to take the junk back to futureshop in original form and see what they say as I just bought this drive this summer)..."

Download driver gh22np21


you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark?! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps

My CD RW drive is not reading any CD


Hello,

Here is the download page for the firmware update for this drive:
follow these instructions carefully.


8240firm119.exe
(free registration required at Driver Guide)

Firmware v1.19 for the LG GCE-8240B burner. After downloading double-click the file to start the extraction program. Accept the default unzip folder (C \8240firm119) then click the UNZIP button. 2 files will be written to the folder. One is the firmware (the exe file) and the other is a instructions.txt file. Be sure to read/print the instructions before attempting to use the firmware upgrade. Paying particular attention to the section dealing with whether your drive is OEM or LG. This firmware is only for LG drives and will not work on LG OEM drives. Use this file at your own risk. I nor driverguide.com will not assume any responsibility if your drive is damaged.

We are NOT responsible for any mistakes you make or you loosing power during the flash. You should be on a battery backup power supply to ensure you do not loose power.

Regards,
Worldvet

I'm going to try to figure out what the ramifications of doing this are...in the meantime I'm just curious. How in the name of all that is holy did you manage to get the connector in there inverted? I have a hard enough time getting them in there correctly sometimes! :) btw, was this a molex conncetor or SATA?
