Always make sure that the disc does not have a crack before use. If the disc has a crack (especially
around the center hole), it is recommended to make a copy immediately and use the copy instead.
When a cracked disc is used continuously, the size of the crack is likely to grow and this will eventually
result in irreparable damage to the disc.

For clearer sound, use a digital output terminal.(Available only for the CARD that supports digital
output) This may not be available for general sound cards.
Installing the Device Driver
This Device Driver is an installation driver that can detect ODD (Optical Disc Drive) products in DOS mode.
It provides only the reading function in Dos mode.
(For recording, it is recommend not to install the Device Driver designed for DOS mode)
The Device Driver for DOS mode is included in the Ddriver or DOS Driver folder of the disc enclosed with the

DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC):
The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video discs (such as movies). Currently,
the motionpicture industry has divided the worldinto different regions or zones thatcorrespond to the regional
markets intowhich the motion picture industry releasesmovies. Simply put, RPC codes are placedon movies
marketed throughout the world,based on the region of the world inwhich they are being sold. These
RPCcodes help control and prevent piratingof new movies into other motion pictureregions prior to their true
releasedates within those markets.
The DVD-ROM drive supports RPCphase II. In the RPC-2 mode, the localcode can be changed by users.
RPC-2is selected by default for the DVD-ROM drive.
You can change the region code up tofive times via an MPEG application.
Please contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative if you wish tochange the local code more than

Meaning / Solution
The DVD-ROM drive is not
detected by the computer.
Check that the power, audio and IDE cables are correctly connected
to the computer.
After installing the DVD-ROM
drive, the PC gets slower.
Change the IDE cable and reconnect it to the computer.
Preferably, connect a second IDE cable to the DVD-ROM drive in
master mode.
Check the position of the jumper in the master/slave select terminal.
The DVD-ROM drive is not
recognized by MS-DOS.
Reinstall the device driver or update it with the latest version by
downloading it from the Samsung Web site.

The DVD-ROM drive is not
detected by Windows.
This case may occur when there is a Windows installation problem;
reinstall Windows.
No sound is heard from an
audio CD.
Check whether the audio cable is correctly connected to the sound
output terminal on the DVD-ROM drive and the sound card CD-IN
Check that the sound card is operational.
Adjust the volume control of windows.
A CD is not read or is read
too slowly.
Check whether the CD is of good quality and clean it, if necessary.
The disc compartment will
not open.
Check that the power cable is correctly connected.
Power off and disconnect the PC.
Insert a pin or unfolded paper clip in the emergency hole and push
firmly until the disc compartment opens.
When the MPEG software
plays a Video CD, the pictures
are not regular and the running
speed is too slow.
Adjust the size of the replay screen.
The Disc is not in message is
displayed even though a disc
has been inserted.
The computer may not recognize the disc if you start playback too
quickly after inserting the disc. Open and close the disc
compartment and try again.
After checking the display resolution, adjust it, if necessary.
Clean the disc and try again.
The DVD-ROM drive is not
detected after it is connected to
a sound card.
The interface mode of the sound card is AT-BUS.
You must therefore connect the DVD-ROM drive to the IDE port on
the PC mother board, rather than to the sound card, or install an IDE
compatible sound card.
