Re: not recognizing cd/dvd drive
My samsung does this occasionally its a new one and it sometimes isnt detected by the pc or windows, and sometimes the text telling u what the drive is, gets corrupted, does urs do this? what i did was to install them on opposite ide channels so only 1 dvd/cd drive per channel. So far so good. Have u unplugged the samsung from the power and then plugged it back in again? this also helped me.
One thing u dont clarify, is the pc seeing the drive in the Post screen? or is it just windows not seeing it. If its just windows, try uninstalling the dvd/ide drivers and letting it find them again.
