Weird XP problem with LG CD-RW HL-DT-ST GCE-8520B


The problem is that the CD-RW can’t copy anything from a CD to hard disk. This happens only in Windows XP. Sometimes when I browse into the CD-RW using Windows Explorer, Explorer hangs.

In “System Devices”, everything seems intact, it even shows

Installation of Windows XP was a breeze and the CD-RW worked fine then.

I have also successfully flashed the firmware from GCE-8520B 1.00 to GCE-8520B 1.04.

I don’t know what to do. I tried to go to the LG site but there isn’t any information regarding this topic. Another strange thing is that Windows tells me that everything is in order (except when I copy files to hard drive from CD).


Try switching your master/slave drives. I got a 8525B and I had the same problem… But it disappeard when I took it back to the shop… :rolleyes:

Or have it work as a master with no slave attached to it.
