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.
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…!
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.
