    It says "insert a disk" when there's already one in it. Open/close the door; same message.

    Same problem which started a few months ago. Have tried troubleshooting, updates, uninstalling and installing again, but all I get is "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"

    Cannot Initialize Drivers. I can't find the drivers on any website, although I had a link that stated an LG driver would work. That doesn't seem right though.

Rony, it sounds like your CD drive is dead or dying. Or, you might be running on low power. Did you add anything new, like a new video card, or anything else that would draw power to it?

find it hard to believe that this device will burn dvd's as it will only burn cd's you require a dvd writing device to burn and read dvd's data or video with 3rd party software such as nero or nti

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.

I need the driver for samsung sw-252 CD-RW Burner


May be there are some cable fault. Just check that the cable CD-RW to Motherboard and the power cable from SMPS attached in CD-RW is ok. Then try. If it works then fine. If not, then just format C drive(Or where u have installed the OS). Coz I've already gone through a problem like this. In that case the cables ware ok. Then I just format the C drive and install a fresh copy of XP. And works fine till now.Let me know the result.

Cd drive not working


One thing you can do is in device manager, delete the device, reboot the computer and see if it finds the device and reinstalls the software for it. If it does not, there is a high probability that the drive is bad or the IDE controller in the computer has failed. Windows XP is no longer supported.
