    Thanks for the quick response and I feel like I should of known better that I did not back up the driver info?



    Looks like a common mistake as there are many people having done the same thing to their pc's on loads of web sites. (trusted the site like a fool)!



    Samsung have not been help to anyone either and know one appears to have the info backed up looks like an expensive mistake either with new chip or fixed board to run the player?



    If someone finds the downloadble info Boy would they be popular?

First thing you need to do is to enter your BIOS usually by pressing either <Delete> or <F12> during boot up (Depending on your BIOS) next look at the page that has your hard drive and optical drive information, If your CD/DVD is shown on one of you IDE channels, then theres hope that you can fix this yourself.

If it is not detected then the failed firmware update completely erased the EEPROM (memory chip) that contained your Drives Firmware. In this case you would need to take it to an authorized dealer to have this chip either replaced or reprogrammed with an EEPROM encoder.

If BIOS is detecting it then the same software you used to try the firmware upgrade will allow you to FLASH the firmware again. If you made a backup of your previous firmware before the update, this would be the best one to try to reflash with. If not please go to the website for the drives manufacturer and download the firmware 1 step earliar then the one you tried. Then try flashing THAT one. If that one fails too keep going back one earliar then the other until you get one that works or the machine fails to recognize the drive.

Hopefully this gets you back to a working condition.
Thanks for choosing FixYa

It's possible to remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive to another computer, and then copy all the files, and maybe burn some DVD-writable disks.

Hello,
The issue is with the driver compatibility.
First I would ask if the recovery is latest?
Or else after the recovery update it with the web so as to get the latest service pack like sp3 for windows xp.

Second thing is that you can try to download the latest driver from the lexmark manufacturer.
Sometime with the latest driver update and will correct the the bugs.

Samsung DVD Rom Drive does not read disks


Usually when you buy a DVD ROM drive it comes with software. However, I bought a LG one and it didn't come with any software. All I can tell you is to update the system BIOS and the firmware that came with the drive. Look on the top part of the drive when you take it out of the system.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download updated firmware for the unit.

Samsung v 25 dvd room not working


Hi Alfonso, you can put any dvd-rw into your laptop, all you have to is change out the screw holder on the back of the drive and also change out the face plate. This will allow you to make sure that the drive fits properly and that you can screw the drive into place. Also make sure the shape of the drive matches up as well.
