Does GCE-8481B105 have the ability to burn if upgraded?

The synopsis is not good for this old drive. As far as I can see there are NO firware updates to convert to DVDRW (I have never seen any CDRW converted by a SW update). The firmware update from LG is here:

Some commentary from the web:
"My 8481B completely shut down a while back and wasn't burning anything.. It would just sit for 15 minutes, desparately trying to burn, making strange noises, and not responding at all. So, I niavely went to the website looking for updated firmware, ended up flashing to 1.05.... and my drive did actually start to work after the flash, which was an improvement... however, I don't want to be using an unapproved firmware "downgrade" not designed for this particular drive, and I did have some BIOS issues, so now I'm trying to get my drive back to 1.10. (I'd like to take the junk back to futureshop in original form and see what they say as I just bought this drive this summer)..."

Do they have GCE-8481B105 DVDBURNER SOFTWARE?

Most devices have firmware update.
Check your device product website.
Be careful while updating or you might get a fatal error!

Download driver gh22np21

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark?! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps

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.

Hi, Why do you want to do this? There may be a different solution possible.

It could be that it needs a lens cleaner or realigning, but try this and see if it cures it, sometimes it works. If it still persists go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically.
