SOURCE: 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.

I have the same Samsung Multi DVD Recorder as it calls itself and it works OK with XP for me. You probably need to install the Nero software that came with it as it normally contain the hardware drivers that are needed. Sorry if I'm too late with this reply but I only just came across your post.

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.

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.

I'm trying to burn a music cd and the comment pops up. " disc burner or software not found". My internal cd dvd burner is internal and it's not even showing that I have an E: drive now....

Firstly there is a qwerk with windows 7 in that the dvd drive is not always there in computer. You will sometimes see it there and at other not. Dont worry. However what cd burning software do you have? the most popular are Nero and Roxio. If you do have some on your pc then reinstall it and hopefully all will be well.

I removed my old cd rom that came with the computer and put the new one in.when i put the cd in that came with the new cd rom it said installation was unsuccessful.i bought the hp dvd1270i

Usually the software that comes with a new dvd/cd burner is just burning software (nero or roxio).
Your drive is just plug and play and windows has all the drivers that is needed.
I would uninstall the software you installed and try it with free software like IMGburn or CDburnerXP

Can't load my burner


The CD Burner drive is compatible with your Windows XP the software version is where the problem is. You need to get an updated version of the burner program, something like Nero burning ROM or Roxie EZ CD creator.

Hp 1040i xp problem

I'm not sure if this will help you but read this link I'm sending. I went round and round with 3 different highend motherboards and processors and kept getting error after error, everything I read in forums, the tech guys, everybody seemed to go to my memory as the problem but low and behold I wasn't believing them and my research paid off. Maybe the intel/hp problems I was having are related to yours. The acceleration software maybe. I dont know but you might want to give it go. I was a little shocked that my brand new dvd writer intel conflict would cause the blue screen of death. sorry so long but if this helps anyone I'll be glad. Thanks, great days to all, Dave

CD/DVD Combo Drive Just Not Burning DVD

I had problems with tsstcorp in my drive. The software you are using won't work. You need to try sonic or roxio. I had the same problem. Do you have a dell? if so download the updates from the support website. Try a different software because a reinstall of xp should get rid of bugs in system. It sounds like a software issue though.

Dvd rom detecting problem

You need to find what DVD reading and CD and also DVD burning software you had, then download versions of the programs compatible with Win 98--then they should work fine. Your CD/DVD drives will be ignored until you get the correct burning software installed. Go t Samsung, which hopefully will have the appropriate downloads for Win98. If Samsung no longer has what you need, find any software for Win98 such as Roxio, or hopefully freeware, and you should be back in business.
