Re: samsung dvd writer
Most common problem is the "jumper" setting is wrong. You can do several things. Some you may already have done, but check it any way.
1. make sure the SATA cables are completely plugged in correctly. Power is plugged in.
2. Check the "jumper" on the back of the burner. Should be in "Slave" position even though the manual doesn't say it, it says "Master/Slave".
3. Go into "control panel", then to "system" then to "Hardware". Check to see if you have a "yellow !" for CD devices. If you do click on it and remove it. Close all windows and "restart".
That should fix it. If it doesn't, check the "compatability" of the Motherboard per Samsungs website. Some mother boards are just not compatible. Might not hurt to check that first before you do anything else.

If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.
It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.
Hi! When did this issue begin? You can perform some steps to make sure if the Dvd disk/writer is not working anymore . Try to Shutdown your computer and when you turn it back on Press F2 for Bios option (usually it has a blue screen background) Now check if the DVD drive/writer is detected or while on that option> Try to press on the eject button of the Drive . IF it's ejected it means that it is still working. Now boot on your normal windows and disable or uninstall any burning software that you have installed. Update the driver or firmware by going to sony website and look for the right product description/model and install it . Also update your BIOS then restart your computer then check if the DVD can read any disk like music/video. If it can read something reinstall your Burning software.. Hope this will help you . God Bless
What software do u use to write DVDs on both PCs...
if they are different then that may be the issue....
dont spoil the DVDs....
try DVD RW disks...that way you can erase them later...
i too have the same DVD writer, not had any issue in either XP or Win7....i have dual boot and have made many movie DVDs using both OS...i use Nero and Power2Go of LG(the install disk that came with the LG DVD writer has this great software...."LG Power tool")
try this tool...it should work...
the inbuilt DVD creator in Win7 has some issues with DVD creation....due to non compatibility of graphics card and display drivers (WDDM)....+ you may not have the correct codec required to burn DVDs.....
get the FFDSHOW codec from google.... and install it...shutdown and restart and then try...
let me have a feedback pls...
That drive is only a CD reader and writer. It does not have DVD read or write capabilities. No amount of messing with it is going to make it play DVD discs. You will need to upgrade it to a drive that has DVD capabilities.
yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds.
It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless.
If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
