Samsung External Slim DVD-W USB Compatible with Mac and PC (SE-S084C/RSBN Burner) automatically upgrades the latest firmware version through internet.

Here is the samsung Official Product Support link. Firmware is available only only for Windows. Therefore i recommend that you connect you external drive with any other system with windows operating system and upgrade the firmware. Moreover, User's Manual and other related information and details are also available.

Also, try using CD/DVD ROM Cleaner because there may be some dust inside the drive that may prevent it from reading the disks.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

My cd rom stopped working. my drivers are up to date. Tsspcorp Cddvdw ts-l633a. running vista home

Spend $40, and buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, and install it.

Responsibly recycle the "dead" CD-ROM device.

My Matshita UJ-840D DVD/CD-ROM Drive Stopped working

i,m assuming this is A laptop Computer ?
The only thing you can try is this:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/ System/Device Manager.
see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks by your problem device. if so click un-install. then at the top of that page, there is a refresh icon or similar. which will rescan the systems bus.
failing this try add new hardware wizard, in control panel.
finally ensure the device is connected correctly, unlock/remove and re-insert. update any device drivers for this.
