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)..."

I don't have a printer tool box on my windows 7 how can i clean my printer heads?

The printer toolbox would be in your printer software suite. If you have a basic printer driver, it may not include that function. Go to your printer manufacturer website, look for the support or download tab, put in your printer model information and see if there is an software suite for your print that will work with Windows 7.

If you found this suggestion helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback. If you need more assistance, please include you printer manufacturer and model number, include product number information if available.

Thank You,

No dvd\cd seen at all :(

Hello dunko350,
I found a link to drivers. LG's site is far from helpful.
Just find the section that says "Driver Download" and enter the 4-character code and then click on the "Download this driver" button.
Also see this from Microsoft:

Good luck and have a nice day.
