Question about LG GCR 8523B Internal 52x CD-ROM Drive
There are lots of possible reasons for this, but I will just try and give you a few troubleshootings
steps that you can try out.
The first one is that, your CD/DVD lens might have become weak, and therefore might need to be
changed, or if its just dirty, you might just need a lens cleaner.
The second reason is that, it might be that the CD you are trying to read is bad, dirty, or not
properly burnt...in this case, you might need to clean the surface of the CD properly then re-insert it.
Also, you can try to upgade your RAM(Memory Card Sticks), especially if it is less than
1Gigabyte. (I've seen a case like this before, and that is why I'm adding it.
The third reason is that, your CD/DVD Drive might be having a conflict within the OS. What I
would suggest in this case is that, Power up your system, then when the system boots, just right
click on my computer, then properties, then select the hardwares tab, then click on device
When you get to device manager page, try and locate DVD/CDrom Drives, then click on it, if your
drive is there, then just right-click on it, and select uninstall, and after this, on that same page,
click on 'Actions', and select "Scan for hardware changes". But if its not there. Just click on the
"Actions, and Then select "Scan for hardware changes".
This should automatically place your CD/DVD drive back inside your My Computer page. After
this, try the CD or DVD again.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck and Thanks for using fixya!
