Question about Samsung (SD-612) Internal DVD Drive

No Recognition!!! Good evening/morning, Please assist. I have the Microsoft XP OS and a Samsung 612 DVD drive. They worked well together for a while, but now the DVD drive is not recognized in My Computer; and I can not play or burn CD's. Please let me know if there is a quick fix for this, or if there is something that I have to buy to make my DVD drive work again. Thank you. Charles

I need the GP08LU10 XP driver


USB optical drives never require a driver when used in Windows XP. This device is 100% Plug 'n Play in Windows XP providing it's a good drive and plugged into a working USB port. The OS will detect and install a USB drive automatically without user intervention within 4-7 seconds normally. When it does so, you will get notification that the install was successful and that the drive is now ready to use.

If it has never been prepped, ie: partitioned and formatted, then that task will need to be performed using drive prep software usually provided by the vendor/manufacturer or by using the built-in partitioning and formatting feature that Microsoft included with the OS.

THis is a problem that cropped up with windows XP. It happens once in a while, however you may be able to minimize this by making sure your connectors to your devices are on securely. You can also go to the device manager by right cllcking on your "my computer" icon. Go to the hardware tab and chose the device manager. Go to DVD and CD devices and uninstall your device. Restart your computer and it will scan for hardware changes and will probably install your CD/DVD drive back using the driver already in windows. If you can find an updated driver for your CD/DVD device from the Samsung site, you may want to install the new driver.

I hope that you find this information helpful. If I have helped you, please leave that feedback for me.

Thank You,

Brian

Dvd drive wont read dvd's


You state a problem here that is going to need a lot more info before a suggested fix could be provided. is this a new drive you added to your computer or a "factory installed" drive? If a new drive, did it come with "driver files" to be installed into Windows and did you install them? During installation, what questions were you asked and how did you answer them? By the way, my DVD drive shows up as a "CD Drive" in My Computer too, but it still reads & writes DVDs. Try right clicking on the drive in My Computer, click on "Properties" and then click on the "Hardware" tab. When the hardware screen opens, try clicking on "Troubleshoot" and follow the directions. This might work if you are in Windows XP.
