Samsung DVD SD-608

By dubbleeagle ·
Hi,

my brother has a Samsung DVD-ROM (SD-608), but he can't change the DMA-setting (unable to change it into "Enabled"). When he plays a DVD-rom the movie shakes.

Can anyone give some idea's please.
We already tried reinstalling drivers.
Windows (9 also says there is no DVD-ROM in the computer, but a CD-ROM (if this can help)

Try to upgrade your dvd-rom firmware, in many cases this solves compatiblity problems.
Go to samsung web site and download their latest firmware file, they sould heve intructions also for the apropriate procedure for the upgrade. Be carefull this is a delicade operation that can damage your drive permenantly.

several suggestions, starting with the easier ones first:
make sure dma is enabled in the bios for the ide chips.
make sure the proper drivers are loaded for the ide chips. see motherboard site, if known.
if your system is less than a pIII 500 or so, consider getting a "hollywood" DVD decoder card for the quality (about $75-$100).
