Question about Samsung (SD-612) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

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

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write


Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.

I am downgrading from Vista to XP. I am facing problem during hard disk recognition by XP CD.


You maybe having OS (OEM) issues.
You may be having drive space issues.
Recommend:
Verify that the hardware is supported by both OS on the Microsoft Campatibility site. If the controller and dirive checks ok then you will need to verify if you have at least 40 gig free space on the 80gig drive, if not, you will likely have to delete the partitions and start fresh with the XP disks. Caution: make sure that the manufacture supports the both XP and Vista on that machine and you have all the drivers you need.

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.
