✱ Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment

You must not use the drive in any manner other than that specified in this guide.

CAUTION Do not attempt to repair the COMBO drive yourself. Contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative for all repairs.

If you make any adjustments or perform any operations other than those specified in this guide, you run the risk of exposure to hazardous radiation.

Avoid exposing your eyes or skin to direct or scattered radiation.

WARRANTY Please refer to the Samsung limited warranty statements.

Precautions 1. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture.

2. Always check each disc for cracks before using it. If there are cracks on the surfaces, especially around the border of the center hole, we recommend that you make a copy of the disc immediately and then stop using it. If you continue using the disc, it will probably develop more cracks and eventually cause irreparable damage.

3. Do not use poor quality discs:

2

Follow the instructions displayed on the screen to install the utility.

Refer to the separate utility documentation for further details.

3

Store the utility disc in a safe place.

Installing the Device Driver

You do not need to install an additional device driver for

Windows 95/98/2000/ME, Windows NT4.0, as the default Windows device driver is used.

The SAMSUNG device driver enables discs in the COMBO drive to be read but not recorded in an MS-DOS environment; the driver is located in the D driver folder on the CD record utility disc.

8

Using the COMBO Drive

To play audio or video CDs and/or DVDs in your COMBO drive, proceed as follows.

1

Push the power button and boot the computer.

2

After booting the computer, open the disc compartment by pressing the Eject button.

3

Insert the disc (CD/DVD) and close the disc compartment by pressing the Eject button.

The indicator light comes on.

4

Play the disc (CD/DVD).

Playing Audio CDs

Run the CD player supplied with Windows or your sound card.

You can listen to the CD by connecting an earphone to the earphone connection terminal.

Playing DVDs or Video CDs

Set up and run the SOFT MPEG program supplied as an accessory.

Storing and Cleaning Your Discs

To ensure a long service life for your discs and drive, follow the precautions below when storing and cleaning your discs.

1

Do not place a disc in direct sunlight.

2

Store a disc vertically in a well-ventilated and stable location.

3

Do not write or attach a label on a disc.

4

Do not drop a disc or place heavy objects on it.

10

5

Do not touch the surface of a disc; hold it by the edges.

6

To clean a disc, polish lightly from the inside of the disc to the outside with a soft cotton cloth.

Solving Recording Problems

If you have any problems recording via your COMBO drive, follow the appropriate instructions below for the source that you are using.

◆ Hard Drive

1

Check whether the source file is corrupted.

2

Optimize the hard disc by using the Windows defragmenter feature:

START / PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / SYSTEM TOOLS / DISC DEFRAGMENTER

3

Decompress the hard disc if it is compressed.

4

Make sure that the space available on the hard disc is at least twice the size of the largest file to be recorded on the disc.

5

If you wish to record more than 1 000 small files:

First create an image file and copy the image file to the disc; refer to the section entitled "CD Creation from CD Image" in the CD record utility documentation

Choose the low record speed

Compress small files and then record them

11

01.SM-308-GB 1/3/02 6:27 PM Page 12

◆ Network Drive

1

Copy the network drive contents to the hard disc and then from the hard disk to the COMBO drive.

◆ CD-ROM Drive

1

Clean the source CD, if necessary.

2

Create an image file and then copy the image file to the COMBO drive.

3

Check the CD-ROM drive record speed.

There are two recording methods :

Low-speed (file by file)

High-speed (transfer of an image file from the hard disc)

4

If the transfer speed of the CD-ROM drive is slower than the record speed, reduce the record speed.

◆ Others

1

Before starting to record, determine the audio and transfer speeds by using the [Tool/System Test] option in Easy CD Creator. Then, choose an appropriate record speed. If the audio speed is less than 2X, first create an image file on the hard disc.

2

To perform a record test before copying to a CD, select the [Test/Copy] option.

3

If the test fails, try recording on another disc.

4

The COMBO drive does not support high-speed recording to CD-RW discs above 8X. Discs above CD-RW 8X use different rewriting methods and can only be read via the COMBO drive.

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 motion picture industry has divided the world into different regions or zones that correspond to the regional markets into which the motion picture industry releases movies. Simply put,

RPC codes are placed on movies marketed throughout the world, based on the region of the world in which they are being sold. These RPC codes help control and prevent pirating of new movies into other motion picture regions prior to their true release dates within those markets.

The SM-308 COMBO drive supports RPC phase II. In the RPC-2 mode, the local code can be changed by users. RPC-2 is selected by default for the SM-308 COMBO drive. You can change the region code up to five times via an MPEG application.

Please contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative if you wish to change the local code more than five times.

Solving Technical Problems

Problem

The COMBO drive is not detected by the computer.

After installing the COMBO drive, the PC gets slower.

The COMBO drive is not recognized by MS-DOS.

The COMBO drive is not detected by Windows.

No sound is heard from an audio CD.

A CD is not read or is read too slowly.

The disc compartment will not open.

When the MPEG software plays a Video CD, the pictures are not regular and the running speed is too slow.

The Disc is not in message is displayed even though a disc has been inserted.

The COMBO drive is not detected after it is connected to a sound card.

Meaning / Solution

◆ Check that the power, audio and IDE cables are correctly connected to the computer.

◆ Change the IDE cable and reconnect it to the computer.

Preferably, connect a second IDE cable to the COMBO drive in master mode; see page 7 for further details.

◆ Check the position of the jumper in the master/slave select terminal.

◆ Reinstall the device driver or update it with the latest version by downloading it from the Samsung Web site.

◆ This case may occur when there is a Windows installation problem; reinstall Windows.

◆ Check whether the audio cable is correctly connected to the sound output terminal on the COMBO drive and the sound card CD-IN terminal.

◆ Check that the sound card is operational.

◆ Adjust the volume control.

◆ Install the latest version of the device driver.

◆ Check whether the CD is of good quality and clean it, if necessary.

◆ 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.

◆ Adjust the size of the replay screen.

◆ After checking the display resolution, adjust it, if necessary.

◆ 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.

◆ Clean the disc and try again.

◆ The interface mode of the sound card is AT-BUS.

You must therefore connect the COMBO drive to the

IDE port on the PC mother board, rather than to the sound card, or install an IDE-compatible sound card.
