Question about Samsung (SH-M522C/BEBN) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive
Since the last few hours suddenly the DVD ROM has stopped reading any disc that i am inserting. Please give me a powerful solution to repair this. i have tried uninstalling driver and restarting. please help me ASAP.
Im having the same problem with this drive and samsung has not helped at all. i cant even upgrade the firmware because the automatic upgrade program that upgrades the firmware comes up with a warning window right off the start, but the window is the wrong size for the text and you cant quite see the OK button or click on it to continue. just a reflection of samsung quality. nothing but garbage. to me samsung is just a big scam. once they have your money, thats it , 0 support. oh well you got me again samsung, my fault. ill just throw this drive on the pile of samsung.

this could be that the laser has burnt out, or needs cleaning.
Try cleaning with a cd/dvd laser head/lens cleaner.
Also try using different types of media disks, i.e CD Or DVD.
Sometimes a unit may read a cd, but not a dvd.
This will determine, whether the laser is giving any power output.

Hello to everybody.
I work at the Samsung Service center for DVD burners.
To avoid that this drive will fail during the usage I recommend
everybody who owns this drive (& the SH-S223Q) to update the firmware of the drive.
The latest version of the firmware is SB02.
This firmware can be downloaded on our website:
This firmware will improve the stability of the drive.
I can also send the firmware to you by e-mail.
For any further questions please feel free to contact me as I will be
happy to answer all your questions.
Samsung OMS Team,
