    I have the exact same problem. The only thing I can think of is that
    the jumper pin needs to be changed. It also appears that the drive is
    not getting power although I made sure the power cable is in in good.
    There is no manual with the SH-202 drive I bought from newegg and I
    can't fine a pin-out description of the 6 pins that have a two of the
    pins jumpered together

Can not Find in "My Computer" the DVD RW and DVD

Are the power and data cables plugged in from the DVD-RW to the PC?
If cables are plugged in ans secure, download the driver and install it on your PC. You might need to restart after that.

Turn your computer off, and unplug the AC power.

Open up your computer, and unplug the "data" and "power" cables from the DVD-drive, and then reconnect them. Check that the "other" end of the "data" cable is firmly attached to the motherboard.

Reconnect the power, and restart the computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS-setup mode.
Is the DVD-drive still not detected?

If it is not detected, it probably is electronically "dead", and needs to be replaced.

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.

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.

Ide detection

Hi there, Is the drive tray opening? If its not Then check the Power cable.If it does, does the BIOS detect the drive properly? If its not then Check your Jumpers on the Drive and Data Cable on the Drive. If you are using Windows XP and Above you do not need any drivers for it. Hope This helps.

Driver cannot start

First ensure ya DVD is OK in BIOS, IE: Ensure the Drive Table shows it "Active". Otherwise the drive is faulty & must be replaced. If OK, Then Boot, & go to Device Manager & right click the DVD & "Uninstall Driver" when asked if you want to totally removal/remove all files say Yes. Then close down & turn power off, then open PC & disconnect the DVD drives Power & Data Cable.. then reboot.. Get to the desktop and then shutdown & Turn the PC OFF, then reconnect Power & Cable, restart PC. Windows should "Detect" the "New" DVD and pretty much "Just work".. it may ask for "Drivers" if you have got them, point it in the right direction of the Driver files & install If windows doesn't "Detect" & install driver & and pretty much "just work" after this.. then again your device is faulty. If it's not working, then ya gotta replace the DVD with a new one, when doing so, just do as above to install.. Connect Power & then the Data Cable, etc.. etc.. and ya should be all good.. as usually if it's a good one.. they just work..

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
