I can't assume myself when you say "little white strap". There should be only two cables (straps), one is the IDE cable and the other is "Power". If it's the only writer you are mounting, don't worry about the jumper.
Let me give you the Video Tutorial:

Good luck.

Have a samsung dvd writer installed on my netbook, but when playing dvd there is no sound. What to do? The netbook is a packard bell dot s


I checked up on it a little and it looks like netbooks don't come with the required codecs for DVD audio. I think this should do the trick though: http://download.cnet.com/The-KMPlayer/3000-13632_4-10659939.html?tag=contentMain;contentBody;1d Either that or try to find the correct codec manually. (Where I found that link they said they had to tweak it a little) Here's the link where I found the info: http://www.hardwaregeeks.com/index.php/gadgetblog/comments/review_samsung_super_writemaster_se_s084/

Hope this helps!

I spent the last 4 hours trying to troubleshoot why my CD/DVD drive does not recognize DVDs. It recognize when I put a mini Driver and User Guide CD for SUB1.1 to Fast Ethernet converter but it doesn't...


That drive is only a CD reader and writer. It does not have DVD read or write capabilities. No amount of messing with it is going to make it play DVD discs. You will need to upgrade it to a drive that has DVD capabilities.

Most common problem is the "jumper" setting is wrong. You can do several things. Some you may already have done, but check it any way. 1. make sure the SATA cables are completely plugged in correctly. Power is plugged in. 2. Check the "jumper" on the back of the burner. Should be in "Slave" position even though the manual doesn't say it, it says "Master/Slave". 3. Go into "control panel", then to "system" then to "Hardware". Check to see if you have a "yellow !" for CD devices. If you do click on it and remove it. Close all windows and "restart". That should fix it. If it doesn't, check the "compatability" of the Motherboard per Samsungs website. Some mother boards are just not compatible. Might not hurt to check that first before you do anything else.
