you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark?! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps

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,

Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

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!
