It sounds as if either the power cable on the back of the drive has come loose, check first before going further, if that is still connected then the most likely scenario is that the drive died. You can pick up cd or dvd burner at any computer store for around $30 max. Hope this helps.

  1. Turn off the power to the computer.
  2. Insert a steel rod (about 1.3 mm in diameter) into the emergency eject hole and push hard. (A stiff paper clip may be used).
  3. The disc tray is ejected a short distance. Pull it all the way open by hand. roadfox_2.jpg

Will a samsung sc 140 in a dell inspiron 531


Hi Grannyking - Sorry, the answer is no. Your PC only has connectors for drives using the current standard SATA connectors. The Samsung SC140 uses the old IDE standard for connections so there is nowhere to connect the Samsung,

For about $40, replace your _OLD_ CD-ROM drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer, which will be compatible with _any_ disk that you feed it.

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c drive is not working. It is not listed in "My Computer". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but that does not work.


Is the CD-ROM drive on a separate cable on the second IDE controller on the desktop motherboard? Then the jumper setting can be set to Master or Slave if no other drive is connector to this cable.
If the CD-ROM is also on the first IDE controller and IDE cable as the hard drive then the jumper setting on the CD-ROM must be set to SLAVE because the hard drive would be jumpered as MASTER.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the CD-ROM drive is detected.
If the CD-ROM still does not work after you checked and configured the CD-ROM drive, then is is faulty and needs to be replaced.

If it's not a SATA drive try to set your IDE Controller in Device Manager to use DMA mode not the PIO. If it won't help try to find updated firmware for your drive and install it. Read Carefully Installation Manual Before! If it won't help that's a sign that your PC wants you to upgrade it with DVD/RW instead.
Good Luck!

SAMSUNG CD-ROM SH 152>> Detection Error


Dear Sheila

After connecting it to the motherboard, switch on the pc, then go to properties of "my computer" then choose "Hardware" then choose device manager and over here u will come to know weather ur CD rom has been detected or not, if it has a question mark then it means u have to install drivers for it, but if ur using Win XP, i am sure it shd detect automatically and need not ask for drivers. Hoping a good rating from u....!!!

Thankyou
