Hey guys! I was experiencing problems with my cd burner for the last couple of weeks so today I searched the net for an updated driver/firmware for my drive (an LG GCE 8520b) CDRW.
I managed to find this firmware for it so I executed it and as it was installing, my computer crashed and rebooted! When the computer came back on, my cdrom lights were out and when I hit the tray button, it wouldn’t open either.
So I asked for some help and went into my system folder and lo and behold my cd rom is no longer listed under my hardware. Even in windows explorer and bios, my cd rom is no longer there
I called into LG customer service and the representative told me there was nothing they can do since the 8520b did not have an official firmware upgrade which I thought was strange since I did managed to find one online.
Anyways, now my cdrom doesn’t work at all and I have no idea what to do. I’ve tried reinstalling the firmware update again but now it keeps on saying models don’t match
Can someone please help me? I would be soo totally thankful for your suggestions!
