When it comes to installing a new driver you have to make sure is supported by your PC, that said it may be that you need an installation CD, if the driver does not come whit one try to download it from the website of the manufacturer. another solution can be that your driver may be conflicting with another driver, this means that your problem driver needs to be a master or slave check on the installation manual that came with the driver.

Samsung DVD Rom Drive does not read disks

Usually when you buy a DVD ROM drive it comes with software. However, I bought a LG one and it didn't come with any software. All I can tell you is to update the system BIOS and the firmware that came with the drive. Look on the top part of the drive when you take it out of the system.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download updated firmware for the unit.

Display Dvd Rom

Hello my friend, please try to reboot your computer then goto CMOS and check if the DVD Rom that you have is detected by your system. If it does not detect then you can manually detect a device using CMOS function. Also try to check if the connectivity of your DVD Rom is not diabled otherwise enable it to detect your device. If all the above steps you followed then the result is still the same then please find a computer technician in your place then let him open and fix the problem.

If you need more assistance my friend please reply to this post.

Thank you.

Dvd rom detecting problem

You need to find what DVD reading and CD and also DVD burning software you had, then download versions of the programs compatible with Win 98--then they should work fine. Your CD/DVD drives will be ignored until you get the correct burning software installed. Go t Samsung, which hopefully will have the appropriate downloads for Win98. If Samsung no longer has what you need, find any software for Win98 such as Roxio, or hopefully freeware, and you should be back in business.
