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?

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.

Not worth repairing.
A new Samsung DVD-RW (better than CD) only cost only about $20.

I cant find the right installer for my samsung cd rom sc148f...

You shouldn't need any installer. Support for your drive is part of Windows already. It's just a standard CD drive. If the drive is properly connected (data cable plugged in at both ends and power plug seated) and Windows doesn't detect it, there is something wrong with the drive or you have a bad data cable.

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c drive is not working. It is not listed in "My Computer". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but that does not work.

Is the CD-ROM drive on a separate cable on the second IDE controller on the desktop motherboard? Then the jumper setting can be set to Master or Slave if no other drive is connector to this cable.
If the CD-ROM is also on the first IDE controller and IDE cable as the hard drive then the jumper setting on the CD-ROM must be set to SLAVE because the hard drive would be jumpered as MASTER.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the CD-ROM drive is detected.
If the CD-ROM still does not work after you checked and configured the CD-ROM drive, then is is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c on a dell pc does not open anymore. The indicaterlight does not work too. What to do?

It sounds as if either the power cable on the back of the drive has come loose, check first before going further, if that is still connected then the most likely scenario is that the drive died. You can pick up cd or dvd burner at any computer store for around $30 max. Hope this helps.
