LG GCE 8400B CD-RW will burn cds, but will not read gaming cds meaninh i am unable to install the game, is it supposed to be able to read cds aswell?


Yes it should be able to read any CD including music if you have software to play back music with. There is something wrong with the reading head on your CD player.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some feedback.

My cd rom won't detect blank cds


Hi,

try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.
