Samsung SD-612B Drivers (Windows XP)
Posted 09 October 2004 - 12:55 AM
As far as an driver update for the Samsung SD-612 DVD-ROM compatible with WinBLOWS XP... it does not exist. Thanks to the "wonderful" people at Samsung who stopped supporting this and many other products of theirs. The SD-612 is simply NOT compatable with XP and I'm sorry to say, there is no solution.
At least my Piece of Sh** Samsung DVD came with my computer when I purchased it so I didn't flush all that money down the toilet per say. Look on the bright side though! You've got 2 CD-ROMS.... hmmmm.. ;(

It too ceased working under windows XP, but I have found the solution. I believe it will work for all drives:
Right click "My Computer"
Click "Device Manager"
Click "IDE/ATA Atapi controllers"
Right click" Secondary IDE" (Or which ever IDE your DVD-Rom is on) and click "Properties"
Click "Advanced Settings"
In "Device 0" (Primary) or "device 1" (Secondary), depending on which your DVD-Rom is on, choose "PIO only" under "Transfer mode" (instead of "DMA if available").
That's it - should work now.

If you're not sure what version of the SD-612 you have (B F or S), there is a sticker on the bottom of the drive that will tell you.
