I have just built a computer with two of the Samsung SH-S182M drives and it seems BIOS sees them just fine (Installed and booted off Windows disc to install just fine). And it even worked in Windows for a brief minute, however now they just sat TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M (Two of them) each with a yellow exclamation point in my device manager.
I have tried to download the latest firmware, but how the heck do I install firmware on a CD/DVD drive that Windows can't communicate with?
I've tried looking for just regular drivers but they are more impossible to find than a pot of gold. All there is out there is firmware updates (It seems).
Is there somewhere I can go to download this driver and manually install it through Windows (XP) ? I am running SP2 also.
This is driving me absolutely nuts! As I just built this computer and can not install other drivers I need also because they are all on CD/DVD! Ahhhhhh!
I tried looking th the disc that came with the drive but all that is on there is a DOS Driver that isn't a .bat or .inf file and won't install in Windows anyway.
Also, since I have so many drives, my Local disk with OS on it is the G: drive and I've already run into problems with this with installers saying please insert disk and "not enough space on disk"
I tried to change this in Windows also but it keeps saying that I can't change the drive letter of my root drive with OS on it.
Anyway, has anyone had this similar problem with this internal Samsung drive? I need a resolution ASAP and drivers would be nice too so I can update the firmware and install my other drivers also.
I am just getting really frustrated with this so sorry.
Thanks in advance for your replies!
