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.

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything

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.

The disc/writer dies not open.

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

I spent the last 4 hours trying to troubleshoot why my CD/DVD drive does not recognize DVDs. It recognize when I put a mini Driver and User Guide CD for SUB1.1 to Fast Ethernet converter but it doesn't...

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.

Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...

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.
