My SN-324 drive in my Samsung V25 recently gave up the ghost and stopped reading/writing discs so I spoke with the nice people at a Samsung authorised retailer who recommended I upgrade to the TS-L532 DVD burner.
Once the drive arrived I swapped the drives out but the BIOS did not detect the DVD drive. I then upgraded the BIOS but still it didn’t detect the drive. After much frustration I put the non-working CD drive back in and the BIOS detected it (as it had previously).
I then booted into Windows and physically removed the CD drive and put in the DVD drive. Then I went to Device Manager and uninstalled the CD drive and then scanned for new hardware and it found the DVD drive (strange!) If I just scan for new hardware with the DVD drive in, it doesn’t find it - I have to boot with the CD drive in and then swap them over!
I then rebooted the laptop and the drive has gone missing again. Any ideas how I can get the BIOS to recognise the TS-L532.
Please feel free to ask any questions if I have not made myself clear or you need further details.
Thanks in advance.
