Well, there are screws at the back of the laptop that locks the DVD rom, remove those screws and try pulling it out... if it doesn't there are stills crews inside, so have to open the entire laptop.... that will be the last option, of course.

Good luck!

I have a Samsung VM8000 the dvd rom does not work is there another way to load an operating system on. I do have an external USB DVD drive. Is there a DOS driver I can down load to use this as I have...


What a lovelly old laptop, I still use one.
The BIOS menu will not allow booting from USB as the USB driver must be installed first and that is run within Windows.
You will need and external DVD rom plugged in through the PCMIA sockets on the left side of the laptop.
There are, from time to time, CD roms from Samsung VM8000 laptops offered for sale on eBay.
You could, of course, remove the 20Gb drive and place it in a caddy, load it as an external drive on another pc then copy the XP disk to a directory. Then replace the drive and try and boot from the rebuilt system you have just put on it.
Hope that helps.

New hard drive required for v20


The hard drive that is installed in the V20 laptop is a 30 Gb IDE capacity hard drive.
The smallest IDE hard drive that you can purchase today is in the order of 80 to 100 Gb capacity. The BIOS in the V20 may not be able to support a hard drive this large.
If you install a hard drive of this capacity the BIOS may not detect it or it won't allow you to access the full capacity of the hard drive.

DVD Drive


once the screw is removed, you may need to insert the tip of the screwdriver, behind a small curved plate, where screw went in. Also, on outside of the laptop, there is usually a small button/tab key, which may be pressed in, then retracted, to pull the DVD drive out of it's bay.
