(A : +5V DC)
(B : +12V DC)
Setup
Installing the CD-ROM Drive
To install your CD-ROM Drive in the PC, proceed as follows.
Make sure that the PC is powered off and disconnected from any power source.
If necessary, attach a horizontal bracket to both sides of the drive.
Remove the cover from a free expansion slot and install the CD-ROM drive, as shown in the
illustration.
Connecting the Cables
Setup
Connecting the power cable
The 4-pin power cable from the internal power unit of your computer must be connected to the power
terminal on the rear of the CD-ROM drive.
1 +5V DC
A - Cut Side
2 Ground
3 Ground
4 +12V DC
Note: An improperly connected power cable may cause trouble. Check the direction of the power connector
and the incline side of the CD-ROM drive before connecting.
Connecting the IDE cable
Insert the IDE cable (40-pin), which is connected to the hard disk to the interface terminal.
(Place the red line of the cable close to the Pin 1.)
When using one IDE cable
Connect the cable to the SL (Slave) of the Master/Slave Select Terminal at the rear of the CD-ROM
drive.
a : Slave Drive (Choose the SL Jumper)
b : Hard Drive
c : MainBoard
When using two IDE cable
If there is only one CD-ROM drive, select MA (Master).
Setup
a : Master Drive (Choose the MA Jumper)
b : Hard Drive
c : MainBoard
d : Primary 1
e : Secondly 1
If there is two CD-ROM drive, select MA (Master) / SL (Slave).
a : Master Drive (Choose the MA Jumper) b : Slave Drive (Choose the SL Jumper)
c : Hard Drive
d : MainBoard
e : Primary 1
f
: Secondly 1
Installing a jumper on the master/slave select terminal
Connect a jumper to the rear side of the CD-ROM.
If the jumper is connected to MA (Master), it will work in the Master mode.
If the jumper is connected to SL (Slave), it will work in the Slave mode.
If the jumper is connected to CS (CSEL), you can control the device by using the host interface signal
CSEL. (In general, connection to MA is recommended.)
Connecting the audio cable from a sound card
Connect the 4-pin audio cable between the sound output terminal on the CD-ROM drive and the
audio input terminal on the sound card.
For clearer sound, use a digital output terminal.(Available only for the CAID that supports digital
output) This may not be available for general sound cards.
Setup
Installing the Device Driver
No additional device driver is needed for Windows 95/98/2000/ME/XP/NT4.0, as the default Windows device
driver is used. You can check that the CD-ROM drive has been correctly detected by Windows. To do so,
proceed as follows.
Double-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop.
Double-click on the Control Panel folder.
Double-click on the System icon.
Click on the Device Manager tab.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Meaning / Solution
The CD-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 CD-ROM
drive, the PC gets slower.
Change the IDE cable and reconnect it to the computer.
Preferably, connect a second IDE cable to the CD-ROM drive in
master mode.
Check the position of the jumper in the master/slave select terminal.
The CD-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 CD-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 CD-ROM drive and the sound card CD-IN
terminal.
Check that the sound card is operational.
Adjust the volume control.
Run the CD player supplied with Windows or your sound card.
You can listen to the CD by connecting headphones to the
appropriate connector.
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 CD-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 CD-ROM drive to the IDE port on
the PC mother board, rather than to the sound card, or install an IDE
compatible sound card.
