Samsung SN-324F CDRW DVD Drive Won't recognize any disk

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600. The drive mentioned above won't recognize any kind of disc (audio, DVD, or CD-Rom). The light comes on when a disc is in and the drive makes sounds like its reading the disc, but in the end it can't. In My Computer, the drive show up as empty despite the fact that a disk is in the drive. Device Manager shows that the drive is functioning properly. What I want to know is if I can fix this problem or if I need to buy a new drive. Thanks.

It' most likely that your hard disk drive is defective. Try to boot from a CD\DVD disc, if it does, you have a problem with your hard drive.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem


This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?

Hi,

Do you have Dell 5100, as I didn't think they were fitted with a Samsung drive, or have you put this in, or can you tell me your location?

Cheers
