Question about Samsung Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Samsung laptop model no. is R418. When I insert any disk in the DVD drive, and double click on it it shows a blank screen without any files. It is recognising the cds and also running the auto play but when I go inside the cd, it doesn't have anything in it. Can you please guide me how to resolve this problem.

You typically get a read error from the operation system if there is a problem reading the disk, so it is likely that the DVD really is blank. Try gently washing and drying (with soft tissue not heat) the DVD. Then try another computer. If it reads the data, the burn a new DVD.

Windows crashed total so installed new windows vista pro now my dvd say its only cd and will not write dvd or and tells me no disk in drive when i insert blank dvd


It sounds like you need to upgrade the DVD-ROM drivers on your operating system. You'll need to go to the manufacturer's website to get the drivers for Vista.
1) Determine the manufacturer of your DVD-ROM drive. If you bought the drive separately from the computer, you need to go to the website of the company that made the drive (such as Samsung, Toshiba, etc.). If you bought it as part of a desktop or laptop, go to the website of the company that built the computer (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.).
2) Look for a link titled "Support" or possibly "Downloads" in the menu at the top of the webpage.
3) How you find the specific driver for your device will vary depending on which website you are on. Normally you have to enter in the model number of either your computer or DVD-ROM drive and it will show you what drivers are available.
4) Download the driver for Windows Vista (make sure you get the 32-bit version or 64-bit version, depending on your version of Vista)
5) Install the driver, typically by double-clicking the downloaded file and then following any on-screen directions. You'll then most likely have to reboot as well.
Everything should work after this. If you need specific help in finding the driver file to download, you'll need to provide me with the brand and model of your computer or DVD-ROM drive.
Hope that gets you up and running!
