To solve this Code 39 error, follow these instructions:

NOTE: After removing these registry keys and rebooting, it may be necessary to reinstall any CD or DVD recording applications.

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter

3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor

7) Reboot your computer

8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Please let me know if it works...

SOURCE: hey...i have an external dvd writer of samsung

If you format a machine's drive, nothing should work at all, though some will be able to boot an OS from the DVD-R depending on the laptop model and BIOS settings available.

If you installed an OS, just install some ISO-9660 drivers for removable media for (I assume) WinXP and it's usable. Any other OS should be fine as it came. Mind, both plugs have to be in a powered USB hub, but there is no driver per se except the one from the OS (or preferably, Nero Suite (from Ahead Software, .)) You may also want a forensic DVD tool for the inevitable bit rot over the years since DVD came out so you can still read most data and not have the OS tell you the drive just isn't up to it; though it's possible it accumulated dust if you have used it enough and needs a cleaning disc from time to time.

The led is continuously on and do not open. How I can reset it or correct the firmware?

It check if u got a DVD which allows for checking for updates.
It may update in that condition

Or alternatively,
If u have a like desktop sized portable dvd one, open It up plug it in via cables inside the pc and see if it works, as it could also be the external unit having problems (just thinking aloud)

Hope this helps

How do i use a Samsung external DVD writer model SE-s084 without using the main USB cable. There are 2 USB plugs and i recently broke the main one. is there anyway i can use it with the other plug?

I don't quite understand what you mean with "the other plug", but if you connect your external DVD writer to any USB port, the computer must recognize it and for Windows there is no need to install driver for optical drives.

Probably if you don't want to be left with no free USB ports, you can purchase a USB hub, preferable if you invest in one with external power source like this one: USB 2 0 HUB Powered 7 Port High Speed free AC Adapter

Hope it helps!
