Re: CD-RW Problem

I'm going to try to figure out what the ramifications of doing this 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?

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.

Can LG CD-R/RW Drive model GCE-8520B be hooked up to a laptop computer?

No, you cannot natively use this drive with a laptop.
You'll need to pick up an IDE to use adapter.
They are available at your local computer store for most likely around $15-20 USD.

CD ROM not Detected

Is the Drive detected in the BIOS? Can you boot from your XP or any bootable disc? If so try this solution:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:


Quit Registry Editor.


NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

My CD RW drive is not reading any CD


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

(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 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.
