20 Most Recent Samsung SH-S182D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner Questions & Answers

The problem is that you might not have sufficient memory. Try burning @ 8x. Burning DVDs at 16x is a speed higher than the speed @ which file transfer takes place within the pc. So the lack of availability of memory slows down the proces. I once had the same problem.

I hope u find it helpful sir...

It does sound like a driver problem. You may want to download the manual or contact Samsung directly. They will be able to answer your question specifically

Okay, first, are you using an older 40 pin ide cable? If so, get an 80 pin.Also check that the drive is jumpered properly. Cable select is for squids...set it right. If the drive is connected to the end of the ide cable, set it as a master. If it is connected to the middle connector, set it as a slave.Also, check the properties of your hard drive controllers (not the drives themselves) in device manager. If the advanced properties show any controller as being in PIO mode, set it to dma, and reboot. If you are unable to get it out of pio mode, run the script here:

If this doesn't help, get back to me and I'll try to help more :)

if the pc reboots, then a driver or hardware fault is the cause, try uninstaling the dvd drive in device manager, then restart pc to install it again, or if you are able connect the dvd drive to another ide cable connector incase its a fault from the motherboards ide channel.

Might be stupid Q, but was there a readable disk in the dvd drive already ?
It sounds like a software issues. What OS are you running ?

I'm not an expert on Vista, but generally it should work, as Vista comes with drivers for generic CD/DVD drives.
*(though installing the Samsung drivers may be a good idea if they have Vista approved ones on their site)

Installing DVD drives is one of the easiest things to do in terms of computer building, but I would be very careful if you've never opened the case before now.

All you need to do is turn the PC off, unplug it, then open the case. Find the molex power connectors (they're rectangular and have four pins, should be all over the place if your power supply is anything like mine) and the IDE data cable, which is flat and should be in your mobo, probably attached to a harddrive already. The IDE cable is pretty wide and has a plastic end usually in the middle and the end of the cable, either will work to plug the drive into.

It's self explanitory from there on out. The four pin power socket on the drive goes with the molex connector, and the long, flat data socket goes with the IDE cable connector.
*(the IDE cable has a small spur on one side, and the drive should have a void on one side, top or bottom of the socket, these match up so you don't put the connector in upside down. If it wont fit the first time, try switching top and bottom on the connector.)

The drive should insert from the front most likely, and the case may be cluttered or tight, so you would want to push the drive in half way or so and then connect it before pushing it in all the way. Then screw the drive in place.

Hope this helps, please rate if it did. Thanks.

Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer freezes so it IS in the DVD.

Pearson, Im Sure You Installed a Burning Program(Nero)
This Usually Happens Because of Burner Programs
Just Click On The Win ORB Or Commonly Known as Start
Then Run-
regedit.exe If You are Unable To Read Whats Down Go to support.microsoft.com/kb/929461 Its All There

1. Click StartStart button, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

User Account Control permission If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
Note After you remove the UpperFilters registry entry and the LowerFilters registry entry, you may lose functionality in certain programs such as CD recording programs. In this scenario, you must reinstall any affected programs. If the problem recurs, contact the program vendor to determine whether an update is available for the program.
