I recently bought a Samsung SH-S182M combo odd and installed it myself. I was replacing 2 Plextors (CD 40/12/40A and 716) because I was having issues with them and wanted to test my theory that it WAS the Plextors. (Just unplugging them sort of proved that too.)
Anyway, back to the Samsung - At first I got some erratic behaviour such as; sometimes the drive would show as only a cdrom in my computer, it wouldn't always recognize blank media, when it did recognize media - it was very slow to to so. I deleted the upper and lower limits and this seemed to fix the recognizing blank media issue. But now it won't recognize any burned (commercial or otherwise) media. It reads as a blank disc.
Any input would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
