Question about Samsung (SD-612) Internal DVD Drive
I have been having problems with this particular Samsung DVD Rom drive SD 612B, I found the firmware but even though I have some computer skills, I guess I just don't have enough. Most of the time I will put a blank DVD-R disk to record a movie, I will check the properties and it will indicate that the drive is full. But there is nothing on the disk. I have been trying to use instant copy to burn a movie but it doesn't work, it keeps giving me a message to insert a disc, but I have put a blank disc in the drive already. I downloaded the firmware for the dvd-rom, but I have to upgrade through msdos, I am having a hard time with it. I am hoping that someone can tell me how to get the issues resolved. Thanks Danna

Hi there danna ,
Yes Danna you have a DVD ROM (Read Only Media) all DVD recording drives have DVD -R/+RW (whatever format it will write to)on the front tray if they are DVD recorders , Your model is Not a DVD -R / +RW.
This is why its asking for a disk, its not asking for a blank DVD -R or a blank DVD -RW (there are 4 different types of recordable DVD probably more now with blu-ray these are DVD +R ,DVD -R ,DVD -RW ,DVD +RW) its actually asking you to insert a DVD with a movie already on it or a CD with data or a movie already on it...updating its firmware will not make it a recordable DVD drive...

Its a dvd-rom drive. READ ONLY MEMORY.
That drive will not burn a dvd...it has to say dvd-r/dvd-rw.
or be referred to as a super drive.
Hope this helps.
