There is more solutions, if just doesn't read can be dust on laser reader of old firmware, if not running rotation and not blinking green light 2-3 sec and tryning to read CD you have to buy new one.

Wont read cd's

You could either pay $50 for a qualified technician to "trouble-shoot", and still not fix it, or you could pay $40 to $50 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer. Your choice?????

Sir please help me.i have a samsung 52 32 52 writer which read only cd data content not dvd.sometimes it does not read any disk(dvd or cd )as well as not burning also.

Hardware fault.Try cleaning the lens using a can of compressed air and a q-tip. If this doesn't fix it then the dust has been baked on the lens and this is terminal. Junk this writer and buy a new one, it's cheap.

Cd is not read

Try the CD disk in a different computer.
If it does not read, the CD disk is the problem.

Try a different CD in your computer.
If it does not read, the CD-drive is the problem.

Spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD-writer, to replace the "dead" CD-drive.

My cd/dvd (sh-s182d )rom read cd only but it wont response

CD/DVD ROM drives like yours employs two lasers to work properly, one for CD read function and the other for DVD read function.

It seems that your laser for DVD reading is either dirty or damaged.

Try an optical drive cleaner, if that does not fix it, you are going to have to replace the drive. If you have warranty then replace it or have it fixed. However, if your warranty has expired then the best thing to do is to buy a new one. They are not expensive these days so the price difference between fixing it and buying new should not be huge.

A lens cleaner disk should be available from most computer shops.

I assume you have proper software for DVD video playback like PowerDVD, VLC media player etc.

TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182D....its not cant read any cd or dvd.wht should i do?it seems like something missing,maybe the software/hardware.

It is too late to find out the issue and return SH-S182D drive.
SH-S182D drive has compatibility issue, none of firmware (including the latest) is "perfect" so far.
I couldn't do anything but wait for Samsung to release new firmware to fix their drive.

Same **** with my Samsung SH-S182M. In a nutshell, it burns DVD's then can't read them while my old, cheap DVD reader can. Once in a while it manages to read one making me think I've fixed the problem.

All i can say to you is buy a new one my friend.

If i am helpful to you, please rate me.
Thank you.

Dvd problem

not an easy one to fix,

first you'll need to find out if it's the lens adjustment or a laser problem. this will require you to open up the drive, and test it running open, use protective glasses to shield your eyes from the laser.

buying a new one is faster less time consuming and about 20 dollars. Removing it and connecting the new one, anyone can do 4 screws, and to diff cable that only fit one way.
