Question about Samsung External Slim DVD-W USB Compatible with Mac and PC SE-S084C/RSBN Burner

1 Answer

Samsung se-s084c and mac os x 10.5.8

I cannot get this burner to work in my mac os x. The CD it comes with does not work in the computer, and anything I download from the site as far as firmware does not work either. I can get the burner to burn if I open a burn folder, but the computer is not recognizing it and I cannot find the firmware I need to have it work properly.

    Hi, You mention you can't get the burner to work under Mac OSX. "I can get the burner to burn if I open a burn folder..." suggests that the drive will successfully burn (and as a result, is recognized by the Mac.) All firmware downloads from the Samsung site are not applicable to Mac OSX (only for Windows). Can you please clarify what your expectation is of the drive? Perhaps it is not showing data or audio discs when you insert them into the drive?

Similar problem except worse. Can't even burn anything. Furthermore, disks inserted in the drive are not appearing on the desktop or anywhere. The drive appears in disk utility. It also seems to cause a host of other problems, various burning applications are CRASHING and not even responding to force quit (haven't tried to kill from terminal yet). We've had to reboot several times.

So far experience is awful. Going to return this if it computer keeps crashing everytime the drive is plugged in.

Macbook Pro (intel) with latest updates.

Samsung External Slim DVD-W USB Compatible with Mac and PC (SE-S084C/RSBN Burner) automatically upgrades the latest firmware version through internet.

Here is the samsung Official Product Support link. Firmware is available only only for Windows. Therefore i recommend that you connect you external drive with any other system with windows operating system and upgrade the firmware. Moreover, User's Manual and other related information and details are also available.

Also, try using CD/DVD ROM Cleaner because there may be some dust inside the drive that may prevent it from reading the disks.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps!
