I have a Samsung SH-S223F DVD Writer. The Label on the drive mentions the firmware SB00.
It was in my father's system and suddenly (about 2 yrs ago), the BIOS waited for 10 to 20 secs to recognize the drive but failed. :eek:
The Drive does not blink the led when powered ON & the open button also does not work.
I think some how the DVD drive has bricked itself...! :sad:
So, how to recover the drive. It's not used too much (to write or read) so the laser must be good, may be some dust could be there & i can use a Lens Cleaner CD later.
I don't want to experiment in my father's system. My system does not have a SATA port, but i have USB to SATA and IDE <=> SATA controller boards.
Thanks in Advance.
