Ok, first of all, I know this is not Mandrake’s fault, it’s LG’s.
I tried to upgrade my CRD-8482B CD-ROM firmware before installing Mandrake, but I got no sucess. I followed all instructions carefully, but I got a strange “Error 3” during update. I tried everything, then I gave up.
So, I installed Mandrake Linux 9.2, and as expected, my cd-rom is now dead. So I followed the instructions of “Emergency Download for Physical Dead Drive from Mandrake Linux 9.2 Instalation” from the LG website.
The problem is that my BIOS does not recognize my CDROM any more, and the update program LG provided does not work.
I know this is a cheap / old CDROM drive, but i really would like to get it running again, mainly for learning experience.
Can anyone please give me a light?
Thanks in advance,
PS: sorry for english mistakes, I typed it very fast…
