drivers for xp
megatech on November 27, 2006
RE: HL-DT-ST CDROM GCR-8523B

I reinstalled XP home and now the cd is there. the drivers are fine
but i get the "Please insert a disk into drive..." message. The links
to microsoft articles do not apply to this issue. I beleive it may be
an IDE issue but just like everyone else are stumped.

RE: HL-DT-ST CDROM GCR-8523B

I tried this CD-ROM under XP in different machines and the result is the same as mentioned before ("NO CD...", totally blocks the system, ...).

I tried under Win98SE and it works excelent. Under Linux/Knoppix too.

I didn't try XP driver yet, but I will.

RE: HL-DT-ST CDROM GCR-8523B

I experienced this problem not only with this drive but also with my second drive which is a plextor. I updated it´s firmware from Plextor´s website and it is ok now, so I tried the same with the HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8523B which is a LG electronics drive.

find the driver here: (LG German site)

http://de.lge.com/products/mobile/mobil/sidemenu.do?action=list&group_code=040201&list_code=PRD_SW&target=sw&categoryId=040201&modelCategoryId=040201&parentId=04&gcscId=¶mModelCode=GCR-8523B

If you can´t follow that link search for

GCR-8523B at LG Electronics

The above link provides driver download for Win Xp but also other platforms, it is in fact a firmware update.

If you have more than one drive don´t forget to select the right drive in the update menu that will open when you doubleclick the downloaded file.
After firmware update you uninstall the old drivers and let Win XP find the new hardware.
(with several reboots in between:)
This worked for me....hope it will for you

By the way: like some of you mentioned before: the problems occured when Windows automatically updated XP....microsoft as we know it...
What firmware updates don´t solve is that older programs which ran ok on XP suddenly don´t work any more with these mysterious Winupdates....

Hope I could help you
