Question about LG CRD 8400B (CRD-8400) Internal 40x CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Cd Reader I just wrote that I should be able to just install the new reader in the computer and it will work. Is that correct? I put in a new cd reader in my computer and then did the Windows SP6 and then the drive didn't work any more. If that happens again, what should I do? It worked before I went to Windows 2000 SP6.

Either spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer,
or take the CD-ROM with the files to another computer.
Spend $10 to buy a 4Gbyte USB memory-stick.
On the other computer, copy all the files from the CD-ROM disk to the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and install from the files now on the memory-stick.

How do I install husqvarna reader/writer into my computer?

With CD Rom drives most of them are plug&play. I would suggest attaching it to your computer via USB and it should just come up. If it came with an installation disc put it in and follow the instructions.

My CD Player for a [Compaq] Presario V3000 hasn't been working. It worked fine less than a year ago, then it stopped working. My Computer doesn't show the CD icon any longer, not even Device Manager seems...

It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.
Any computer-store technician can easily "manually" open your current drive, and remove the CD/DVD media.

Need to install second cd driver in desktop computer

It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

Logitech camera

Sometimes CD drives (especially laptop drives) will have problems reading certain CDs, and it usually causes the computer to freeze for ages while it tries to read it. Eventually it should give an error message saying it can't read the CD, but you'd have to wait a very long time for this.

Try the CD in a different computer. If it works ok there, I'd copy the contents onto a memory stick and use that to install it onto the computer.

Hope this helps!
