Re: need lg crn 8241b driver, missing
Hi, did you re-install or is the drive just "missing" without other problems?
If you re-installed, we can provide a link to a driver, if it just went missing, the driver is not the problem and there is a fix for a known issue where dvd's disappear you should try. I will post the link to the fix below.

Sorry, but the technologies are not forward-compatible like that. The CD can write about 700MB of data to a 4-3/4" CD, but cannot write to a DVD. It may be the same physical size, but DVDs hold approximately 4.7 GigaBytes, or roughly 6 times MORE data and use a completely different writing technique. The only choice is to go and purchase a new DVD writer and replace the CD writer completely. With the reduction in costs lately, look for a DVD-RW (ReWritable) so you can use disks over and over again instead of one time each. It requires that you buy slightly more expensive disk, but they can be re-written 100s of times.
Check the Hardare manager is there any question mark at the icons of
the CD drive? If the auto play does'nt work then the CD-rom is not
reading the CD, either the CD format is different or the CD-rom lens is
faulty. Note: don't remove Hardware when PC is running, you might cause
damage to your Hardware devices.
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.
