Samsung SC-148 CD Drive

My drive is broken on my old Emachines T 4130, I know the computer is old, and that drive is no longer sold, but I cannot afford a new computer right now, so can you tell me what if any, drives that I can replace it with?

Thanks

This website has those specific drives, they're $39 from what it says at the bottom.

Or, you can purchase a drive from somewhere like Wal-Mart to replace it with. They sell Lite-On drives for around $50, that should read both DVD and CD.

How do I replace the hard drive on my emachines PC/


Power down the eMachines computer and unplug it from the power outlet. Remove the left side panel from the computer case by removing the two screws or thumbscrews in the back and sliding the panel toward the back of the computer. Should the panel not move, check to make sure that there isn't a latch or switch on the rear of the computer case that needs to be slid downward in order to remove the panel. Not all cases will have this feature. Locate the hard drive; it should be in a 3 1/2-inch drive bay located beneath the computer's CD and DVD drives. If your computer has a floppy disc drive, the hard drive will most likely be located in a bay beneath it. Check the position of the floppy drive to make sure that you know which 3 1/2-inch drive it is. You should notice two cables plugging into the back of the hard drive; one of these is the power cable that comes from the power supply, and the other is a data cable that is connected to the computer's motherboard. Unplug the power and data cables from the rear of the hard drive, leaving nothing else plugged in to it. Remove the screws that hold it into its mounting bay, setting them aside until you need them for the new hard drive. Slide the old hard drive out of the mounting bay, being careful not to drop it or hit it against any of the motherboard's components. Set the drive aside and pick up your new hard drive, then slide the new drive into the same bay that you just took the old drive out of. Line the small holes in the side of the drive up with the holes in the mounting bay. Secure the new drive by screwing in the screws that you had previously removed, then plug in the power and data cables that you had unplugged from the previous drive. The cables will only plug in when oriented correctly, so you won't have to worry about accidentally plugging them in wrong. Once the cables have been plugged in you can put the side panel back onto the case and plug your eMachines computer in once again. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQToRwe74P8

EMachines Desktop PC: when inserting a cd drive,nothing happens...


First thing to do is check whether your optical drive is visible in Device Manager:
Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage".
Click Device Manager, then look for a DVD/CD-ROM drives section on the right and expand it (click the plus).

If you dont see your optical drive listed there, or you don't have a DVD/CD-ROM drives section in Device Manager then your PC is not detecting the presence of the drive. In this case if it is a desktop PC you need to make sure both power and data cables are securely connected. If it is a laptop, you may need to just reseat the drive (due to its connector no longer making good contact with your mainboard). This would be a case of unscrewing the relevant screw underneath, pulling the device right out (possibly cleaning the contacts, if dusty), then pushing it back in firmly before putting that screw back in.

If on the other hand you DO have an entry in Device Manager for your drive but it has a yellow exclamation symbol next to it then that means there is a driver issue. This is commonly caused by uninstalling some particular cd burning software. It can be fixed by a simple registry edit...
Run Regedit (Start Menu->Run. Type "regedit", press Enter.)
go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Control \Class \{4D36E965..."
Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" entries. (These will get regenerated...)
Then reboot your computer. Hopefully problem solved.

CD drive not working


Based on your indication the CD drive is clean, and you know the cables are attached to it, inside the computer. (Flat ribbon IDE interface cable, and 4-pin Molex connector power cable)

1.Go to Device Manager

Left-click on Start. Right-click on My Computer. Go down, and Left-click on Properties. Left-click on the Hardware tab. Go down, and Left-click on Device Manager.

Left-click on the + sign to the left of, DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click right on the name of the CD drive.

(Example: Lite On DVDRW LH-20A1P.
eMachines Support indicates the T5212 has a DVD burner drive, and a CD drive. Right-click on the CD drive name))

In the drop down list, Left-click on Properties.
Left-click on the Driver tab
Go below, and Left-click on the Update Driver 'button'. Now go below, and Left-click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Do Not Restart. We need a 'Hard Shut Down'.
Wait 1 minute, turn your computer on.

Still doesn't work?
Let's play hard ball.

2.Go back to Device Manager. Left-click on the + sign to the left of DVD/CD-ROM drives. Right-click on the name of the CD drive. Left-click on Properties. Left-click on the Driver tab.
This time go down, and Left-click on the Uninstall 'button'. Go below, and Left-click on OK

There will be a Microsoft 'squawk box' that comes up. "Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
Left-click on OK. (It IS okay!)

Close all windows. Shut down your computer normally. (Again, we need a 'Hard Shut Down'. To Restart a computer is known as a 'Soft Shut Down')

Wait 1 minute. Turn your computer on.
After Windows loads all the way, and all of your Start Menu programs have loaded, you should see a pop-up out of your system tray. (Bottom of Windows desktop screen)

"Found New Hardware", and perhaps another one, "Found XYZ CD drive". (XYZ = the CD drive name)

No still?

The driver for your CD drive, is located within the Windows XP operating system on your computer.
If your CD drive does not work now, I suggest it has failed.

Drives such as Optical drives, and Harddrives, are mechanical devices. Their 'Lifespan', is rated in so many hours of usage. Your CD drive may be at the end of it's 'Lifespan'.
