Dell does have a firmware update for this drive, use the Downloads tab above, enter information for your system and follow the links. Please disable ad-blocking software or set an exception for MSFN.

It still works for most things, yesterday I installed a Driving Theory Test program and it kept saying I needed to insert the CD it works fine on my dads PC , could be something there.

I tried that several times but to no avail. Hard drive replacement problem. Unfortunately, Dell does not have any updates or drivers or firmware for my CDRW drive gce8-481b is kinda ridiculous, if you asked me – I have done a search in the forums for GCEB prior to posting my message and it seems that a LOT of people are having problems with this model and nobody from Dell seems to hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b any kind of valid answer.
It instantly recognises the hardware, loads the drivers, the CDRW is back in the device manager and My Computer setup, but hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b does not read or burn any CD that Jl-dt-st load into it!

Usually, if I click on a removable storage drive with no media inside it’ll tell you that no disk loaded, please insert disk, but in hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b case of this drive it just displays a blank screen. Message Edited by Predator on On repeated attempts to run diagnostics on the CDRW drive it started telling me that “no data disk loaded into drive”, so now I am completely baffled.
Here’s the error log I got: That’s the writer I have and I was going through recent messages because that unit has suddenly stopped recognizing any disks on my my Dimension Kinda expected Dell-associated hardware to be a a hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b more reliable, even my compaq’s and hp’s lasted longer.
However, when I load in a CD it’s simply as if the cd drive lost all capability of reading it. It still works for most things, yesterday I installed a Driving Theory Test program and it kept saying I needed to insert the CD it works fine on my dads PCcould be something there.
Hi Anton, Not that my opinion means much but it sure looks like the drive has simply failed to me. I have a In the Device Manager properties the CDRW is listed hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b all features, all options available, device working properly, no problem codes.
Its worth the shot. Best Gce-841b God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b the ones I do and the eyesight to tell the difference. Already have an account? Both these firmware state they address an issue with Mandrake hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b.
Try giving dell a call. I have a rather unusual problem – one day the CD-RW drive stopped recognising all media, whether hl-dt-st cd-rw gce-8481b data or audio cd’s cd-wr blank CDR’s.
