Question about Samsung (SH-S162L/BEBN) DVD RW Burner

1 Answer

Unable to detect second

Hello there,

I bought a Samsung SH-S202N/BEBN a week ago. I already had a DVD Drive previously so I replced it with this new one. I also had another free slot for a new drive and I bought another SH-S202N/BEBN.

Now the second SH-S202N/BEBN drive is not showing up in "My Computer" and also the previous had stopped working but is visible in "My Computer". Please help, I have no idea what to do!

    just to clarify, my first samsung drive was working until I plugged in the second SH-S202N/BEBN drive.

    I read somewhere about the master and slave drive, does it has anything to do with this?

    how do I check the Jumpers? is it written at the back of the drive?

Check the jumpers on the back of the drive to ensure you have no conflicts. There are 3 settings M, S, CS which mean master, slave and cable select.
Cable select requires a special cable in your computer with fine pitch 80 wires, usually with one blue connector at the motherboard, one black for the master drive and one grey for the slave. This colour code is not used by all computer manufacturers, though and they may all just be grey.
If you have this cable, make sure the jumper on your drives is set to CS. Otherwise, on each cable (there should be 2 in your computer and the hard drive should definately be master on one) you can have only one master device and one slave.

I have the same Samsung Multi DVD Recorder as it calls itself and it works OK with XP for me. You probably need to install the Nero software that came with it as it normally contain the hardware drivers that are needed. Sorry if I'm too late with this reply but I only just came across your post.

As long as you have set the jumper at the back correctly to either master if its on its own ide lead, or slave if it's one of two on the same ide lead then if it will not play original cd's or dvd's then the drive is faulty, and you should return to your retailer.
