Hi

If unit crashes while doing firmware upgrade you risk having a major problem. Try disconnecting power cable and connect back.
If it works restart the upgrade.
Try starting the unit with the upgrade CD inside (was a disk upgrade?).

The best solution is calling Samsung support and performing any of the operation under their direct control. This will protect your warranty validitty.

Call Samsung at the number listed on the manual and try performing operations above under their direct supervision.
If it is not possible to restart the firmware update, and the unit does not start, then the recorder must be sent to Samsung.

Usually it is possible to restart and complete the firmware update.

Dvd crashes in the middle of the movies


You might want to try cleaning the unit with a DVD cleaning kit

rulds2008_2.jpg
You can purchase this HERE

Now after running that a few times in the player be sure to check you DVD's for any scratches, You will be surprised any type of scratch or dirty disc can make these players artifact/crash.

Now worse comes to worse you might have a bad lens/laser in the unit but if the unit is playing over half the movie chances are it just might be dirty.

Thanks for using Fxya.com I hope you do find this Very Helpful.

Sincerely,


Ed Aka rulds2008

My samsung dvd writer is reading cds but not dvds what should i do


Caution: Samsung is not responsable for problems during the firmware upgrade.
When you encounter problems during the upgrade, please contact a Samsung Service Center.
If your drive is still in warranty please contact your retailer first. When you upgrade your firmware, please check the "Buyer" on your label of drive.
If you upgrade wrong firmware, you will have a problem in operating.
ex) SM-332B/*** 63BT123456 F/W=T403(***=Buyer)
■■ How to upgrade firmware ■■ 1. Download the attached "Bin file(firmware)" and "Sfdnwin.exe file(download
program)" into a temporary folder. 2. When you run "Sfdnwin.exe", Pop-up window will appear. you can see your ROM-
drive(s) in the Pop-up window.
Then choose the drive whose firmware you want to upgrade.
ex)Drive:SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SM-332B/T403 3. You will see three icons on the top from left.
If you click the first icon from left, you can see "Investigation window" then open
the firmware file that you already downloaded to the temporary folder. 4. You will see the message" Ready" after finding the firmware file that you want.
Then click the middle icon on the top of left. Then your firmware will be upgraded
automatically. 5. When you finish upgrading firmware , reboot your pc automatically.
■■Sfdnwin.exe : A program which can make your drive download our firmware(s) in Windows.
(It's for only Windows)
I had the same exact problem and thought the ROM was broke but it still played CD's. It's funny because when the problem started I thought I had really messed something up, and it turns out there are massive forums like these for the exact same problems. I hope I can ease a few minds w/ this. I'm running Windows XP, 1G ram, 100GHD.

I intalled model iHAS324-32 Y to replace iHDS 11807-4 and vista wont run with it. Tells me to uninstall it and contact manufacturer. I uninstalled it and system works fine again without the disc drive.


Is your vista a 64 bit OS? If so this dvd-writer is compatible with 32 bit OS. You may need to upgrade the firmware for it. Maybe this link can help LiteOn firmware search.
I've upgraded firmware for a dvd writer already with no bad consequences but I have crashed one of my motherboards trying to do the same. So if you're not comfortable doing it, get the people you bought it from or some techie to do it for you. Hope this helps

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!
