Question about LG CRN 8245B (CRN-8245B) Internal 24x CD-ROM Drive
My Compaq CD ROM CRN 8245B works with Windows XP but stops working with SP 2. Is there an updated driver for it? In SP 2 the message is 'Please insert a disk in...' When a disk is inserted the cursor changes indicating that there is activity and then the above message pops up. I used the drive to install XP and it worked. After installation I upgraded to XP2 using a disk and it worked. But after installation stopped working.
Any help appreciated.

These compact CD drives break more easily than standard desktop drives. Your drive will probably need to be replaced. First I would try removing and re-inserting the drive (maybe even a few times) There is probably one screw or a slide switch under the laptop to allow the CD drive to be removed. IF that does not help, have you cleaned the lens? You have easy access to the lens when the drive is open. If you have any camera lens cleaning equipment use that, if not 91% rubbing alcohol and a q-tip will work. Just don't rub too much or apply much pressure at all. Just lightly sweep away any dust. If none of the above work I would look for a replacement. The CD burner or DVD burner drives are typically more reliable and last longer.

Problem solved, I deleted the UpperFilter from the registry in managing devices and when I rebooted the computer, the icon was there in My Computer.

This drive is not a cd burner. It is only a 24X CD "reader". This means that it reads the cds but not write on a blank one. Here is a link to specs if you need:
I hope this answers your question. I thinkn you are trying to do something that is not supported by the drive.
