Samsung sh-s182 not read cd's and dvd's

Good day, could you please help me out... i have a samsung sh-s182m dvd+rw DL rom. every time i insert a cd or dvd, and click on the dvd rom directory in the computer panel, the rom would eject and ask for a disc. i think this started to occur after i uninstalled nero. ive tried changing the cables already... could this be a hardware problem or software?

    when i insert a disc it blinks a couple of times for about 3 seconds then stops, totally quiet. i did what you told me, i opened it and gently cleaned the lens with a fine cotton, i dont think the lens had been clogged because i just bought my drive last december... but still i cleaned it.
    any chance that this could be a software problem? or should i try my drive in another computer? my os is windows vista... i checked the ide already and enabled dma. i also tried uninstalling the device and then reboot afterwards...

    anyways could you look at my system if my power supply is not enough..

Hi,

So you mean each time you insert the disc it ejects automatically?or you have a problem reading with the disc?

    See if the problem is only with the Autoplay not opening when you insert the disc then please let me know your operating system and i'll tell you how to enable it.

    Anyways here is what you can try if your cd/dvd isn't working but it will also require your player to take it apart.So i wouls suggest you to get it repaired.


    Load a disc and listen.Does
    the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing
    noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the
    disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path
    inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by
    an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

    Totally
    silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from
    the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a
    better word.
    This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by
    foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a
    marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also
    be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

    You
    could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as
    far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover
    off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a
    very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings
    to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust
    accumulating, but its still worth the try.

    If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

    It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that
    guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and
    solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser
    eye then fails to read the next track.

    If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.

    Goodluck..

TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182D....its not function.it cant read any cd or dvd.wht should i do?it seems like something missing,maybe the software/hardware.


It is too late to find out the issue and return SH-S182D drive.
SH-S182D drive has compatibility issue, none of firmware (including the latest) is "perfect" so far.
I couldn't do anything but wait for Samsung to release new firmware to fix their drive.

Same **** with my Samsung SH-S182M. In a nutshell, it burns DVD's then can't read them while my old, cheap DVD reader can. Once in a while it manages to read one making me think I've fixed the problem.

All i can say to you is buy a new one my friend.

If i am helpful to you, please rate me.
Thank you.

before anything else.. your computer must not be plugged in
have some screw drivers ready

open the case
remove the connections of your old cd/dvd-rom

remove the drive from the bay

replace it with your new dvd writer
replace the connections and the screws
put everything else back
then turn on your system :D

Read only cd-r not dvd


Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer freezes so it IS in the DVD.
