Samsung SH-S202N CD DVD burner

Ok I have a computer probable about 7 years old with windows xp professional on it. I have had a cd burner in the computer but the tray got stuck so i put back the orginal cd rom drive and than finally wanted to upgrade to a cd dvd burner. I bought a samsung SH-S202N drive. it came with a disc with nero 7 and lightscribe on it. first off i unpluged and disconnected everything and took the cd rom drive out and put in the new dvd burner. it seemed like my computer detected it and installed or said it was ready for use. so i put the disc in to be able to burn and what not. I already had a nero version installed in my computer. when the autorun page came up for the disc it had two things on there the nero 7 and a link to a firmware update no link would work. so i tried going to the samsungodd.com website to get the update or what not for firmware and it would never download or install correctly. it kept saying could not get the update to start. and after messing around a bit got it to start the update but than said it needed windows xp service pack 2 i got that updated and stuff. than it asked for the windows xp disc. I just dont' understand why its asking for so much stuff. I cannot find my disc because i've moved so many times in the last 2 years. and just never had to do this with the other drives i put in. I don't know if this is because of the newer dvd stuff or what. but also when i try to install the nero 7 it says it needs a update and that the serial number supports that i need other features updated and i think there talking about the firmware. I'm stumped and wanna keep this samsung but i don't know. i've read online that this model isn't compatable with windows xp. so pretty much if there is any answer for this let me know or some more troubleshooting

I have the same Samsung Multi DVD Recorder as it calls itself and it works OK with XP for me. You probably need to install the Nero software that came with it as it normally contain the hardware drivers that are needed. Sorry if I'm too late with this reply but I only just came across your post.

Unable to detect second


Check the jumpers on the back of the drive to ensure you have no conflicts. There are 3 settings M, S, CS which mean master, slave and cable select.
Cable select requires a special cable in your computer with fine pitch 80 wires, usually with one blue connector at the motherboard, one black for the master drive and one grey for the slave. This colour code is not used by all computer manufacturers, though and they may all just be grey.
If you have this cable, make sure the jumper on your drives is set to CS. Otherwise, on each cable (there should be 2 in your computer and the hard drive should definately be master on one) you can have only one master device and one slave.

Samsung SHW08A DVD±RW doesn't burn dvd+r


Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.

Read only cd-r not dvd


Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer freezes so it IS in the DVD.

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.
