I have a promble that my cd rom drive is not working or missing can u tell me how to fix it please

It should show up in the POST screen.

Go into the bios, and change it to show the POST screen, instead of a logo,
If you need to.

This is the first indicator.
If it shows up, then you might have a problem with windows.
more on that...
but if it doesn't show up in POST,

unhook it, reboot, all the way up. then shut down,
reinstall it CAREFULLY, make sure the cable is done cleanly, and correctly.
then try a reboot and look for it on the POST screen again.

No show, try as new cable, or plug it into a different drive cable and reboot
just to see if it shows up in POST at all again.
No show : the thing is probably dead somehow. you're done,
you need a replacement.

If it shows up in post:

Check the device manager from the control panel. its under "system".

You might see the thing sticking out with a yellow triangle with a ! in it in drives.

That will be a software issue.

you could remove that item and reboot and let windows try to detect it.

Then you need the proper driver, since its a burner.

Go to the Samsung website, know the correct model number,
and get the driver for it.
install the driver, obviously.

Something up there should get it done.

Good luck.

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

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.

hope this helps

I have a lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s that windows xp will not detect the driver. it shows cdrom.sys driver how do i fix this? I have burned dvd's befor and don't know how or why the driver changed.

Windows xp does not have a native driver for DVD writers. It always detects them as cdrom.sys. You need to use either the writing software supplied with the drive or Nero or equivalent

My new samsung sm348 is not detected

It sounds like it might have the same buss address as you hard drive, making the hard drive inaccessable to boot. Check the documentation for the sm348 there should be information on changing the address jumper. Some PCs the cable determines the drive address, some you have to set it on the device you are installing.

I need the driver for samsung sw-252 CD-RW Burner

May be there are some cable fault. Just check that the cable CD-RW to Motherboard and the power cable from SMPS attached in CD-RW is ok. Then try. If it works then fine. If not, then just format C drive(Or where u have installed the OS). Coz I've already gone through a problem like this. In that case the cables ware ok. Then I just format the C drive and install a fresh copy of XP. And works fine till now.Let me know the result.

CD ROM not Detected

Is the Drive detected in the BIOS? Can you boot from your XP or any bootable disc? If so try this solution:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:


Quit Registry Editor.


NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

My DVD Rom is not detected by the system

When it comes to installing a new driver you have to make sure is supported by your PC, that said it may be that you need an installation CD, if the driver does not come whit one try to download it from the website of the manufacturer. another solution can be that your driver may be conflicting with another driver, this means that your problem driver needs to be a master or slave check on the installation manual that came with the driver. Try this
