Take care installing Mandrake 9.2 if you've got a LG CDROM

Dear All PLUCian's

Article Taken from: Mandrake Website Forums

Several people are reporting that installing the 9.2 totally fried their LG cdrom drive. Luis Alves on cooker is reporting that problem on an IBM PC 300 PL machine, with a LG CRD-8400B. On MandrakeClub an article[1] reports that this happens on a Dell Optiplex GX1 machine, with CRD-8482B and CRD-8400B models.

They've had confirmations that with another LG model, the HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8520B, 9.2 worked nice (e.g. did NOT do any damage to the cdrom drive). Also, with the HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8522B, 9.2rc2 worked nice (it's then -probable- 9.2 will work nice).

For the moment, it seems it's related to LG CRD-84xx drives.
