Question about Samsung (SC-140B) Internal 40x CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

CD/DVD ROM disappears

I have the following problem. First, I thought I had problem with power supply, so I changed the power supply. This is not the problem. When I boot my computer I sometimes see my SAMSUNG CD/DVD-ROM (2-3 years old) is not detected (black/ empty secondary slave position). I have not set any jumpers as these should be no need for that. But sometimes it is detected and working completely NORMAL. In windows, 50% of the cases my CD-ROM works COMPLETELY FINE, but after 5-10 minutes I get the message that my CD-ROM is unplugged and it completely disappears from windows. But when I press the eject button to test it the CD-ROM ejects nicely. It seems the CD-ROM somehow disconnected from windows (2000). I thought I had bad power supply, but this does not seem the problem.

I would think either your IDE cable is faulty or the IDE connector on the motherboard, try swapping cables or use a double IDE cable on IDE 1 connector. You may have a faulty drive ide connection input in which case a new DVD Rom is the answer, only cheap nowadays.

Please describe your my drive is not reading any disk dvd and cd .


Secure that the power supply of your DVD/CD-ROM is connected. Then, if it still doesn't read, buy a new DVD/CD-ROM. Most of the times, it's just the power supply that is not properly connected to your ROM.

How do i change dvd rom unit?


  1. Locate where your CD or DVD ROM drive connects to the motherboard and make a note of this. Make sure you know exactly how the gray cable was connected.
  2. Have the new DVD ROM drive handy and unplug and/or slide out (depending on setup) the old one. Unplug the cables from the appropriate places. You do not have to unplug the one going to the DVD ROM. Wiggle back and forth gently and then pull out.
  3. Attach your new cables and reattach to motherboard and power supply where you removed the old ones.
  4. Reattach the power cord and cables, but do not close up the computer entirely yet.
  5. Test your new DVD player by placing a disc in the drive and ensuring the green light comes on and you hear it power on. If this happens without a problem, then close up the case. If not, then check to make sure cables are securely fastened in the correct motherboard slots and to the power supply

Try changing the power socket attached to your DVD drive with other available one, and restart your machine. If it is not yet shown in My Computer. try replacing the ribbon connector from motherboard to DVD Drive. If it is not yet shown in My Computer you try then to enter setup from start up to manually detect your DVD Drive.

Dvd/cd writer, and dvd rom drive does not work


Check if you have both cables attached to the CD/DVD drive. There are usually 2 that needs to be connected: the SATA or IDE (that ribbon-like connector that goes right to the motherboard), and the power supply (a connector that has 4 colored lines going to the power box). Make sure they are snug, and if necessary, try changing them with others that are known to work (there should be lots of spares). If the CD/DVD light blinks or powers on upon boot, it means power line is OK, but data cable connection is bad.

My Cd-Rom/DVD-rom don't work. It doesn't open any folder. I thought I have problems with drivers: SCSIVAX DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdrOM DEVICE DVD-ROM SD-R2102 TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE 5005-S507 THANKS, OSCAR


According to the Toshiba website, the scsi cd-rom/dvd-rom does not require a driver to operate, but the driver for the scsi controller card it plugs into may need to be reinstalled or updated. Visit the following link, and go to the section labeled scsi cdrom/dvdrom. At the bottom of this section there are two links to websites where you may be able to find the drivers for your scsi controller card.
