Samsung Internal DVD drive and cd-rw drive not reconised
I have a Dell Dimension 8400 and recently both the DVD Drive and CD-rw drive have stopped working. They are not showing up on My computer and according to Device manager ''the driver files are missing or corrupt. (code 39)'' I have looked on line for a driver but can not find one except for firmware which does not work. Is there a problem with the operating system, and can it be fixed. Reinstalling windows would be a last resort but i can'nt do it anyway as the cd drive doesnt work to put the cd in!

If i was you i would replace it........I recently had to replace mine and i picked up a brand new Sony DVD/RW for only $24 If youve never fitted 1 its so easy just 2 plugs which can only go 1 way and a couple of screws....... cheers and please vote
First try a different power connection in the chassis, see if the drive is actually getting power. If no power indications with a different power molex connection, then most likely the drive has failed and you'll need a replacement. DVD-RW drives start at about $20 at places like newegg.com
yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
