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 SD-616 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 SD-616 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

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.
Run the CD player supplied with Windows or your sound card.
You can listen to the CD by connecting headphones to the
appropriate connector.
If you have installed the appropriate player, such as Microsoft
Windows Media Player, you can adjust the volume using the
headphone volume control on the drive front panel.
If you select DIGITAL at CD Audio Play in Media Player of Windows
ME/XP, the earphone does not appear in the Digital Mode.
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

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.
SAMSUNG continually strives to improve its products. Both the design specifications and these user
instructions are thus subject to change without notice.
