Question about LG CED 8081BI CD-RW Burner
I recently updated the RAM and installed USB 2.0 ports onto my HP Desktop which has an LG CD-RW drive which up until now was working perfectly well, it has since stopped working. Windows says the device is working properly, and when I put a disk in it tries to read it, however any disk I put in is shown to have 0kb of data on it and when I try to open the disk it is always empty. Windows has also told me that the drivers which are installed are the most up to date for the burner. Have I inadvertantly disconnected an important cable (there are 3 which I can see going into the drive at the back)or disturbed this device while installing other components... if so, does anyone know how I might repair the damage my clumsy fingers may have done? Thanks, K
You might want to pull all the cables out of the LG CD-RW drive that is the ones you tampered with. No tampered sounds deliberate I meant connected. Start over again be a bit more careful noting what you were doing NOW opposed to then. Sometimes dust accumulated inside the machine gets into the sockets where you insert your cables "SOMETIMES" and at first things go well then suddenly cease. It cost nothing to try again and if you have already done this then perhaps it has jumpers to reset, check on google for those settings and hey goodluck sometimes thats the best solution.

Tips for a great answer:
VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).
