I've been trying tings for weeks including the instructions above but it still does not work.Thanks MAJ I tried what was in your links but it still does not work. Symptoms are:
In explorer the drive is not present. However if I open the drive it appears. When closed it disappears again. I have ried physically removing it and putting it back in, and have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but same symptoms in it will not play discs or get recognised in xplorere and other programs. Help please, it is driving me mad.

Finally solved it ny reinstalling Win 7. This time a window popped up asking me to go yo Samsung site in install firmware and some software. After trying about ten times I found you had to do the downloads in a a particular sequence before the BOIS upgraded. Now it works fine
