Hey everyone, I just bought an SH-202N to replace my agining NEC DVD burner that has been getting progressively louder and slower and is probably on it's last legs.
I installed the drive and Windows recognized it correctly, however it will not read any discs. E.g. I insert a CD or DVD in the drive, the little light will blink, but I never hear any spin up and the disc is not displayed in explorer. It acts like I didn't put anything in.
I put the old NEC drive back in and it worked fine (well at least as well as it had been).
Is it likely the Samsung drive is just broken?
I have never installed Alcohol, Deamon tools or any other drive emulator. I did have Iso Recorder installed at one point, but it's been uninstalled for a while now. Do you think that could be a problem? But if this was a software issue, why would the NEC still read discs fine?
