I have recently aquired a Samsung SD-608B dvd-rom which recognises cd's ok but struggles to recognise dvd's. My o/s is Win98 SE. Any suggestions/solutions ??
what happens when you load a dvd?
Nothing - dvd "whirrs" round inside DVD-RoM and sounds as though it will pick up, sometimes it loads ok but 99% of the time it does nothing !
did you get any dvd viewing software with your dvd-rom ? like win on dvd or power dvd? ,you need something like that to play your dvd's
aquired = bought new or second hand??DVD drive have two lasers. One to read CDs and one to read DVDs. Sounds like the DVD laser is faulty or dirty.
I don't think this is to do with playing. I had a similar problem a while back and had to change the drive. No problem with CD's but would only load dvd's when it felt like it. It could be a failed laser.I assume you have tried more than one disc.
Sorry, not quick enough.
Won't even read data dvd's like those free with PC ADvisor.Have tried more than one dvd disc.Didn't know that there are two lasers.Thanks to everyone !
