Question about LG (GCE-8525BI) (GCE-8526BI) CD-RW Burner

2 Answers


I am no longer able to buy LD GCR-8525b CD ROM drives and can only get GCR-8526b's.  I need to downgrade the firmware in the GCR-8526b to that of a GCR-8525b.  Is this possible and if so how?

A client uses the 8525b in a CD Jukebox and the control board he is using does not recognise the new firmware.

This is the inherent risk in updating firmware to optical drives.

Buy a new drive, power down the PC, install it and reboot the PC. If it is and IDE drive, or a SATA for that matter, before you buy a new drive make sure to disconnect and reconnect both ends of the cable prior to replacing it, just to be sure it wasn't an accidentally dislodged cable causing the problem.

Dvd rom reads cd's,burns dvd's but does not read dvd with content

Try reinstalling your cd driver. You can download the driver from Lg web site under optical drives.

Samsung DVD Rom Drive does not read disks

Usually when you buy a DVD ROM drive it comes with software. However, I bought a LG one and it didn't come with any software. All I can tell you is to update the system BIOS and the firmware that came with the drive. Look on the top part of the drive when you take it out of the system.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download updated firmware for the unit.

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.
