Solving Recording Problems

If you have any problems recording via your CD-R/RW 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 disk by using the Windows defragmenter feature:

START / PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / SYSTEM TOOLS / DISC DEFRAGMENTER

3

Decompress the hard disk if it is compressed.

4

Make sure that the space available on the hard disk 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

◆ Network Drive

1

Copy the network drive contents to the hard disk and then from the hard disk to the CD-R/RW drive.

◆ CD-ROM Drive

1

Clean the source CD, if necessary.

2

Create an image file and then copy the image file to the CD-R/RW 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 disk)

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 disk.

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.

12

4

Disable the PC’s screen saver. If the screen saver activates while writing data, the data tramsfer may become too slow, resulting in data writing errors.

5

Close all application programs except writing software.

6

The CD-R/RW drive supports high-speed recording to High-speed CD-RW discs. Discs above CD-RW 8X use different rewriting methods and can only be via the CD-R/RW drive.

7

When viewing CD-RW 2X properties or performing a full erase, the “WRITE

SPEED 4X DISPLAY” error is displayed unexpectedly. The CD-R/RW drive has been operating continuously for 20 minutes after completing the full erase.

Solving Technical Problems

Problem

The CD-R/RW drive is not detected by the computer.

After installing the CD-R/RW drive, the PC gets slower.

The CD-R/RW drive is not recognized by MS-DOS.

The CD-R/RW 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 CD-R/RW 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 CD-R/RW 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 CD-R/RW 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 CD-R/RW drive to the

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