Not sure what "RAM is accessing it" means?

First to emergency eject, there should be a tiny pinhole in the front of the drive door. Straighten out a paperclip and push it firmly in the hole and the drive will open.

2 likely problems. One is that your laser LED has burned out, in which the drive is pretty much useless, other than that:

If you carefully dismantle the drive:
(you'll need to carefully push the open CD tray up and out to remove it from its cogs, then undo the screws and take the case apart, finally remove the metal shield that covers the rails and the laser head).

You'll see the laser head which rides back and forth on two metal rails. Sometimes it get stuck on the rails and cant move back and forth anymore. This results in a disk that still spins up and a computer that sees the drive, but no data read. If this is the case it is simple to push the laser head along the rails to free it up, grease the rails with a little silicone lubricant and reassemble the drive.

Optical drives are so cheap nowadays though, might just be worth getting a new one. At least you know how to recover stuck CDs now!

My lg cd-rom crn-8245b can burn cds, but it can play cds


hello mplsfanboy,

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.

Thanks!
