GCE 8080n

got a problem with my cd-rw in my laptop. It’s a HL-DT-ST GCE 8080n from LG that after the firmware upgrade won’t burn Cd’s anymore. It gives me an error message along the lines that, “can not follow the CD tracks” or something. I’ve never seen this before and now I’ve ruined a few Cd’s already. I can’t seem to find the old firmware that the drive was shipped with but if I could the problem might disappear…
Anyone have the old firmware by any chance? ie. not the one released last year.

Grateful for any help,
