Question about Samsung (TS-H552B) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Samsung DVD±RW Dual Layer

I have Samsung ts-h552b dvd±rw dual layer burner that will not open or close like it should and now when I try to burn a dvd it starts running & will not shut off. I have to restart my computer to get the disk out. This is the 2nd drive I've had to do this. Emachines replaced my first drive because the pc was only 6 months old, but now it's out of warranty and it's doing the same thing! Any suggestions on how I can repair it myself? Can the little 'belts' inside be replaced, if so how do I go about it? Thanks

    Thanks. I guess I'll have to buy a new one, but it will not be a Samsung. I'm not giving them a chance for a third strike! Also, I can't find the pinhole to open the drive, I knew about that, but this unit must not have one.

With the price of those units, it's usually cheaper to replace them. You could check with Samsung and find out if it's still covered under their warranty.

    Theres a hole in the front of your DVD player. If you have a paper clip, you can instert it in there and it will manually open the drawer if necessary.

U can use nero, first of all you must format de DVD-RW, so that it can be be rewritable. Then use it like a normar DVD-R disk. And every time you want to rewrite the DVD only make a quickformat and put your things on the DVD.

SOURCE: I have lost my power cord to my LaCie DVD+RW Dual Layer....

Here is the PDF Users Manual for the LaCie DVD+RW 301230U
external optical drive,

http://www.lacie.com/download/manual/portable_dvd_sh_en.pdf

(Give it at least 10 seconds to download)
Should the direct link above not work for you, you can download the Users Manual from here,

http://www.generalmanual.com/Disc-Burners/LaCie-301230U-Portable-DVD-RW.htm

Go down to the bottom of the page, and under the green -> Download Now <- heading, click on -> User Manual
The reason I posted the link to the User Manual, is that you can use a USB to USB cable for power. You plug one end of the USB cable, into an available USB port on your computer, and the other end, into the LaCie DVD+RW external optical drive. (You need two available USB ports on your computer. One for power, and one to connect the LaCie external optical drive. This USB cable, is called an Interface cable)

The USB end, that goes into your computer, (Laptop or Desktop computer), is the USB A style end. (Male) This is what it looks like,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_TypeA_Plug.JPG

The USB end, that plugs into the Lacie optical burner drive, is a USB Mini-B style end. (Male) It looks like this,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg
It is the second one from the left side.

Where I'm at, we have Walmart stores. At Walmart they sell a USB adapter kit, made by Philips. This kit has a USB A to USB A cable, that both ends are Male. This cable is on a little retractable reel. The reel is about the size of a USA fifty cent piece. In the kit are five different styles of USB adapter ends. They just plug on that USB A to USB A style cable. (On the small reel) One of those adapter ends is a Mini-B USB male end. It has a Female USB A socket on one side, and a Male USB MIni-B end, on the other side. The kit sells for about $12 dollars.

Should you find that somehow, this USB power cable does not give enough power to your LaCie external optical burner drive, then here is LaCie.com, Products, Support & Downloads, and the Power Supply, for your LaCie DVD+RW 301230U external optical drive,
