Samsung SD616e internal dvd

I have a dell computer dimension 8300 with a Samsung Sd 616e internal dvd. When I install a dvd nothing happens. If I install an audio cd it plays. I have blown air thru the dvd , used a cleaner disc to to the lens and I have uninstalled and re installed the drivers several times. Also when I troubleshoot this Samsung dvd unit it comes up stating " unit is working correctly ". What else is there left to do if anything. What could be the problem ?

    I have a Dell 8400 about 3 yrs old with the Samsung 616E dvd rom drive. It does not recognize neither a cd or a dvd it will eject from the my computer screen but does not play. I've check all cables which are ok. From device manager I right click on the drive I'm told "device is working properly" news to me!! Help!!

    I am new at this. Been told all I have to do is put DVD in 8300 and it works. But it doesn't. Maybe all I need is instrutions on how to run it.

    My dell dvd is doing the same thing.

  • Anonymous Feb 19, 2009

    after reinstalling this device it shows a message : code 39 ?

  • Anonymous Mar 29, 2009

    same problem as the rest of you with my dell dimension.
    but like that one poster said.
    drives are so cheap these days, can get another cd/dvd rom for $20 or less.
    since no one has a solution this seems like the easiest fix. :)

I could have you try a bunch of stuff and go through a bunch of hoop and hurdles but seeing how cheap DVD drives are today it is just less hassle to just replace it with a new one. Really easy to do. Seeing as how you know how to install and remove drivers and all.

Hi likeme2299
Unless you would succeed with other cd's from another manufacturer or updating the firmware , your drive is defective and is probably not worth reparing .

Samsung SD 616E drive not recognized by PC


Check in the BIOS if the interface/port to which you're connecteing has not been disabled. Most bios ' access by pressing del shortly after startup before Windows has started loading. Others access by pressing F1 or F2. (It should indicate what is needed at the bottom of the screen at startup).

Media player says that it cant find the burner


I guess you have a Read-Only drive - ROM. You need a CD/DVD RW drive for burning.

Samsung dvd-rom 616E won't play sounds


I decided to check to see which video player programs were already on my computer. I have a Dell, so there were several that came preinstalled.
Did I mention that Windows Update had installed several new fixes recently?
My toolbar no longer worked like it did last week, that was a clue.
2 of my programs were no longer in the programs list, Interplayer and Power DVD were missing.
I went to the Power DVD site and downloaded the latest update.
Now my DVD player works fine.
I don't know why RealPlayer or Media Player didn't work, even with the updates.
I don't care, as long as something works.
I could have tried Winamp too but Power DVD worked and I didn't try anything else after that.
It doesn't have to be a problem with the hardware, but could be the software.

DVD/CD - RW Combo Drives


Any brand should work as long as you have the correct drivers.

Either IDE (internal) or USB (external) will work.

Samsung SD 616E Internal DVD


mmm! thats very strange! your drive could be damaged internally or have you checked all internal connections Ie: checked that the IDE or Sata cables are connected, By the way i will only recommend you do this if your technically minded.

you can do one of the following

1, have your system checked fully by a local engineer or
2, buy a new Drive if all other parts of your system is working

Dvd-roms / recorders are cheap enough now just to throw away and replace.

I can recomend a shop that i have personally been shopping with for the last 15 years and they really do know what they are talking about,

you can visit them at the shop if your local or shop on line, they even take Paypal as payment

Dvd burning


VSO ConvertXToDVD does what you want. It costs $40. If you buy it now you'll be able to upgrade to 3.0 when it comes out. WinAVI Video Converter, DVDSanta, and Avi2DVD are also recommended, but I have had the best experience with the first program.
