Can you boot off a windows install disk? if you cant use it to boot from it is possible the bios on the drive is corrupt and you might want to reflash the bios on the drive, like I said try to boot off a cd/ eject when computer first starts to boot, also is this removeable, might want to eject the whole drive and reinsert, also, ususally there is a pinhole on the outside where you can stick a small paperclip into to manually eject the drive.

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.

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.
