Re: LG GCE 8520B CD-RW
It could be that it needs a lens cleaner or realigning, but try this and see if it cures it, sometimes it works.
If it still persists go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall.
restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically.

media on your LG GCE-8520B CD-R/CD-RW
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.
You need to go to the control panel then to add remove programs and uninstall any programs that have anything to do with said drive then use the cd that came with the drive and reinstall everything that should fix the problem.
it seems that your cd rw burner has reached it's MTBF, or it might have even over lasted it, I myself experienced such problems and the only way to solve it is to replace its read write assembly as a package, it is available at all LG computer peripherials store.
