[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung SH-S202N / TS-H652N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have a call-recording machine(Mirra Series 2), which uses DVD-RAM as a medium to save call data. It worked fine with Panasonic SW-9574-C recorder, but this SW-9574-C is not able to read DVD-RAM’s any more. I tried to clean SW-9574-C, but had no success. However, then I bought a Samsung SH-S202N optical device, which supports DVD-RAM as well. It has also PATA interface, same power requirements, master/slave jumper is set correctly etc, but the call-recording device is not able to recognize this SH-S202N device!
As much as I have researched, those devices are very similar and I have no idea, why doesn’t this new optical device work with call-recording machine. I made info-pages with Nero info tool:
SH-S202N --> http://encodable.com/uploaddemo/files/SH-S202.txt
SW-9574-C --> http://encodable.com/uploaddemo/files/SW-9574-C.txt
The only difference is that this older optical drive, SW-9574-C, uses DVD-RAM’s only with cartages, but newer SH-S202N uses without cartages. However, this should be only a mechanical difference. I had two SH-S202N models and both were new, so the optical drive itself is fine.
Any additional questions/comments are most welcome! However, why doesn’t this call-recording machine detect this SH-S202N optical drive?
