Question about Samsung SW 240B CD-RW Burner

1 Answer

Computer can't find it

Suddenly my computer (Dell Dimension 4550) with XP Pro fails to rfnd either my CD-ROM or the DVD drive.   I tried Device Manager > uninstall.  When I reboot, it "finds new hardware" (and correectly identifies the drives -- but doesn't install it.  It will install the driver (acturally it was already there) but then says Code 41 -- can't find hardware!

Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Vince

Purchase a USB memory-stick.
On another computer with Internet access, access: http://support.dell.com and select "Downloads and Drivers". Select "Dimension". Select "4550".
Select "Network Adapters". Download the device-driver, copying it to the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and "install" the device-driver.

Dell Dimension 8300 - Can't Boot from XP Disk


When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.

Hi,

Are you getting this error with RPCRT4.DLL. If you do you need to replace this file from the Xp disk.
If you cannot follow, send me a message at rocksmani@gmail.com and hope we can talk over gmail or skype and i'll guide you through.

It may be difficult for you to do it.But if you could do, here the steps are :--
1.Use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the RPCRT4.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.
Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
cd system32
ren RPCRT4.dll RPCRT4.old
CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
cd \i386
expand RPCRT4.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
exit

It'll fix your problem. :-)
