When I enter the DVD in the ROM it show nothing.When I click the DVD ROM icon It shows no disk in the ROM

It might be a bad lense sensor of the DVD ROM or you can also try putting in other DVD/CD disk, if it still doesn't detect them then I suggest you replace the DVD drive.

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.

I cant play a disc or DVD


Please try to reboot your laptop then go to CMOS Settings and detect the CD/DVD Rom and try to see if it is detected by your system. If it is detect ted then exit CMOS Settings and then load the Operating system you have and ope the DVD/CD Rom you have. But if it does not detect the DVD/CD Rom then i advice you to find a computer technician to help you fix the problem cause hardware problem is the main reason why it does not detect the disk drive you have, its either the connection bus is not properly plug or the Disk drive is damage or not functioning well.
