Question about Samsung (SH-M522C/BEBN) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive
My Samsung SH-M522C CDRW/DVD ROM drive doesn't read any DVD's. It reads CD's and I am able to burn them too, but it simply doesn't recognize any DVD's. Sometimes immediately after booting or coming out of Hibernate mode, I am able to open data DVD's for a few minutes before (maybe) the ROM heats up, and then the drive simply causes the computer to hang and refuses to read anything more. Please help! PS: I've noticed that it never reads blue disks and that the disks are really warm when I take them out of the drive.
The blue you are refering to is the dye on the disc, sometimes it's purple, normally the darker the better, but it's down to the individual writer and what disc it is compatable with, but your writers problem is all too common, as in my opionion the lasers that are being fitted in writers are of poorer quality than in the earlier days to enable the prices to become lower. You can try one thing, but it doesnt always work; go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays
