Question about Samsung (SH-M522C/BEBN) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive
The combo drive detects CD but doesn't detect DVD. How do I fix this????
First i need you to make sure that both the BIOS and the WINDOWS is detecting your drive as 'combo' drive. If not, your drive is not combo, it is CD drive only.
Because both rely on the product ID that is built into the Drive.
If u are confirmed of the fact that your drive is COMBO, then the problem might be with the laser.
Combo drives use separate laser beams for DVD and CD operations, and
it's possible for one (either one) to fail while the other is still
working. But it's more common for the DVD to fail while the CD still works.
You need to contact the service center with your drive ,if that is the case.
Hope my info is useful.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
