My slim Samsung CDSW/DVD SN-325S on my Dell Dimension 4700C failed to run. Setup (F2) is showing SN-325S as CD drive, but Device Manager is showing some funky “SAMSUOG! CERW/EVE SN-334S” Device cannot start. Tried the following:
Uninstalling and reinstalling drive. Able to found new hardware on reinstall, but just would not start, still displayed funky device name.
Checked both Samsung and Dell sites, and can only see SN-324F and SN-324B drivers. Tried both drivers and not work. (SFDNWIN gave “Drive not found” error. Clicked ok and tried to load U306.bin. Firmware not match.)
Running Dell System Utility vA06.
Updating driver with windows defaults.
Notice all drivers and firmware on vendor sites are all out of date, could be they are all discontinued…
Really appreciate any help! This is driving me nuts, since it’s not totally dead (setup sees the drive as well as device manager), just don’t want to give up!
Thanks a lot in advance!!
