I fitted a new DVD Writer on my computer (XP Pro) and when I put a disc in the rom, a Microsoft error message poped up 'Windows Media Player cannot play the DVd because a compatible DVD decoder is not...

That's going to be a software error. Basically just letting you know that it has no idea how to play the file. Might need to upgrade to the latest Media Playerif you're trying to actually play a movie, or just disable autoplay to get rid of the message entirely

DVD Writer Model SH-S223 dont read

Hi firma,

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but check ou tthis link to the SH -S223F firmware:

I also found this:
This optical drive is a Plug 'n Play device in Windows OS's. The only requirement is connection to a WORKING SATA controller. Check in Device Manager to insure the sata controller is working/enabled and you shouldn't have any problem. Windows will auto-detect / auto-install the drive without user intervention once this condition has been met.

Additionally, you will need 3rd. party recording and dvd decoding software in order to use all the functions this drive was built to perform, ie: play dvd movie disks and record to dvd and cd-rw disks. Windows is sorta limited on what all it will support.... that's the reason for the additional 3rd. party software like Nero or Roxio and PowerDVD or WinDVD.

Here is a link to InfraRecorder:




Hope this helps, let me know how you made out in a comment, if you need more help, feel free to ask in the comment.

Firmware update problem (SH-W162C)

You need to insert the Windows CD install disk in the DVD drive and reboot the computer. Let the Windows CD boot up and allow it to go through the motion till you reach the end . It will ask what you intend doing? your answer is to press R for "Console" do this and you will see the Command line just like the old DOS CMD line. Type chkdsk let the computer repair itself take the disk out and hey presto! Your alive again.
