samsung cdrw having problems

By cobycoleman ·
my samsung sw 208f does not accept disks from any brand cd except sony or samsung disks. I currently use adaptec cd creation program. If disks aren't perfect condition, the program always errors out. Are there any drivers i can download to make these programs and hardware work properly? Should i change cd creation programs?

Yes, trying another program would be a logical next step, perhaps Nero Burning Rom (available as shareware) or something similar.

Hope this isn't too elementary, but make sure the speed rating of the disks matches up to the Samsung CDRW drive.
I also assume that you don't mean that the disks aren't accepted by the CDRW drive just because they "error out". Aborted burns are caused mostly by buffer underrun problems. You should find the option settings area of the program and manually set burn speed at the lowest setting, and try it out at that setting and progressively higher settings until you begin to burn lots of "coasters" again. My experience is that letting the software do a speed check and therefore trying to burn at maximum speed doesn't always work.

Good luck.

your drive has something called firmware that probably should be updated.
go to samsung's website and download the firmware and follow the directions EXACTLY.
my bet is that'll fix your problem.
hope this helps.
ps you may have to contact customer support to get the firmware updating program.
the website is www.samsungelectronics.com
they are very good about supporting their products!!!!!
