Today I bought myself an external dvd burner and I already have some problems with it, I hope you guys can help.
The following is going on:
I have installed the device, and everything, no trouble, system reconized the driver.
I can use the included nero, or use my own burning sofware (activex isoburner ) to burn iso’s to cd-r’s without problems, ive tried with a 215mb iso file and an 536 mb iso file.
However, when I insert a blank dvd-r, the drive switches to cd-rom station, and it sais that a blank cd-r is inserted, windows also thinks a blank cd-r is inserted,while an dvd-r is inserted!
This results in not being able to burn a file larger then 700 mb past 10% or so, it stops the burning in both nero and activex iso burner, ive tried a 2.4 gb iso file, 3.7 gb iso file and 4.2 gb iso file, nothing.
When I take the dvd-r out again (open the drive) the name switches back to DVD-RAM Station.
The auto firmware updater said the latest firmware version was installed, but trough the samsung technical support site I found a newer firmware version anyway for the Model: SE-S184M.
I installed that, and now the model name changed to SH-S182M SB05, but dvd-rs are still not being reconized, and so dvd-r burning still doesnt work.
The media I use is:
Used cd-r burning media: Verbatim Extra Protection 52x 700mb
Used dvd-r burning media: Verbatim Advanced AZO+ 16x Certified 4.7GB/120Min
I hope you can help me,
