Question about Samsung External Slim DVD-W USB Compatible with Mac and PC SE-S084C/RSBN Burner

2 Answers

Alright, so I have a Samsung Slim External DVD Writer and a Macbook Pro. Apparently the two don't get along as well as advertised. I am able to get it running. I know the CD it came with is useless because it is for PC only. I am aware that nothing is needed to be downloaded for this thing to work. What I don't get is why, when it pops up on my desktop as most other things do for a mac, and i double click on it, it doesn't play for me. All I'm trying to do is watch a DVD. It is named TSITFAT. When I double click on it, what pops up is the finder option showing folders for audio, autorun, video, disc, etc files in a list that do absolutely nothing to help me get closer to my goal. Is there some sort of format I should change for it to work? I would greatly appreciate the help. I know I'm not the only one with this issue.

This drive comes with built in FAT simulation, which you might have acvidently activated. To disable it, open the tray, then tap the open button two times more. The blue light turns of, and the drive is in cd mode.

    This works. I just opened and closed the tray a couple times and it was reset. Thanks!

Same problem and your post is the only thing I've found. Did you ever fix it?

    Yes, the solution above worked. I opened and closed the tray 3 times, and then it started reading again!

How do i use a Samsung external DVD writer model SE-s084 without using the main USB cable. There are 2 USB plugs and i recently broke the main one. is there anyway i can use it with the other plug?


I don't quite understand what you mean with "the other plug", but if you connect your external DVD writer to any USB port, the computer must recognize it and for Windows there is no need to install driver for optical drives.

Probably if you don't want to be left with no free USB ports, you can purchase a USB hub, preferable if you invest in one with external power source like this one: USB 2 0 HUB Powered 7 Port High Speed free AC Adapter

Hope it helps!
