Hello,

Here is the download page for the firmware update for this drive:
follow these instructions carefully.


8240firm119.exe
(free registration required at Driver Guide)

Firmware v1.19 for the LG GCE-8240B burner. After downloading double-click the file to start the extraction program. Accept the default unzip folder (C \8240firm119) then click the UNZIP button. 2 files will be written to the folder. One is the firmware (the exe file) and the other is a instructions.txt file. Be sure to read/print the instructions before attempting to use the firmware upgrade. Paying particular attention to the section dealing with whether your drive is OEM or LG. This firmware is only for LG drives and will not work on LG OEM drives. Use this file at your own risk. I nor driverguide.com will not assume any responsibility if your drive is damaged.

We are NOT responsible for any mistakes you make or you loosing power during the flash. You should be on a battery backup power supply to ensure you do not loose power.

Regards,
Worldvet

Can LG CD-R/RW Drive model GCE-8520B be hooked up to a laptop computer?


No, you cannot natively use this drive with a laptop.
You'll need to pick up an IDE to use adapter.
They are available at your local computer store for most likely around $15-20 USD.

My LG CDRW Model GCE-8520B writes the cd but after writing when u verify the data the cd is still empty


The laser inside the unit that "burns" onto the CD has failed.
For $40, buy a new CD/DVD burner.

If the old unit is still under warranty, exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

It could be that it needs a lens cleaner or realigning, but try this and see if it cures it, sometimes it works. If it still persists go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically.
