When you say it won't read DVDs, do you mean it won't play the DVD movies or it won't recognize a DVD disc when you put it in? If this is the CRW4012a as mentioned in the title, it is only a CD / CDRW drive not a DVD drive and it won't read DVDs. You'll need to purchase a DVD drive to do so.

Samsung External Slim DVD-W USB Compatible with Mac and PC (SE-S084C/RSBN Burner) automatically upgrades the latest firmware version through internet.

Here is the samsung Official Product Support link. Firmware is available only only for Windows. Therefore i recommend that you connect you external drive with any other system with windows operating system and upgrade the firmware. Moreover, User's Manual and other related information and details are also available.

Also, try using CD/DVD ROM Cleaner because there may be some dust inside the drive that may prevent it from reading the disks.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

LG DVD RW not reading dvd


If the problem is only with reading the DVD's seems you do not have a dvd decoder installed or an appropriate dvd player. Download vlcplayer it plays most of the file formats and has many codecs integrated within.
Click here to download
or go to:
http://www.videolan.org/

  • Also delete the following key from registry editor:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Note: clisk START>RUN>type"REGEDIT" and press enter.

  • Update the firmware for the DVDRW

Dvd rom detecting problem


You need to find what DVD reading and CD and also DVD burning software you had, then download versions of the programs compatible with Win 98--then they should work fine. Your CD/DVD drives will be ignored until you get the correct burning software installed. Go t Samsung, which hopefully will have the appropriate downloads for Win98. If Samsung no longer has what you need, find any software for Win98 such as Roxio, or hopefully freeware, and you should be back in business.

Playing PC DVD roms problem


Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.

When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.

As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.

I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.
