Samsung CD-ROM SCR-3232 Drive

Having just installed w2000 on a previous w95 PC (fresh install) I have found that the Samsung CD-ROM SCR-3232 does not function.

On checking the Device Manager it tells me it has installed the correct driver but when I try to access it all I get is "Please insert a disk into Drive D:" and there is definitely a disk in the CD which works in my other pc.

I have looked everywhere for w2000 drivers but can't seem to find any.

Can anyone help?

boot into safe mode, open device manager, remove the drive and then restart normally and let windows redetect the device.

Did you try other CDs?

If kronostm's suggestion does not work, try installing the drive in another machine, to make sure the drive is working properly.

Then your CD-ROM works, it just won't read that specific CD; maybe CD is scratched, maybe drive lens is a bit dirty and you need to clean it. You can copy that CD that it won't read in another PC, and than try new copied CD. It will probably work.

konostm: tried and this but failed. The ultimate problem is that there are no w2000 drivers for the CD drive I think unless anyone else knows different?

There are W2000 drivers, but as I know not for specific CD drive. They are the standard for all drives....
But, you don't need to reinstall drivers. If it can read other cds, than drivers work fine... Drive is, on the other hand problematic.

The drivers for a cdrom are basically the motherboard IDE drivers, which are installed because you can read some cds.  You need to see if other cdrom drives can read that cd.  One thing that might work is to make a copy of it and use the copy.

         Check your Autoexec.bat and config.sys files for any reference to a DOS CDROM driver. I'm saying to check this cause you said you had Win95 first and I don't know if you formatted the drive or kept old files.

Sorry I have misled some of you . . . I meant that I have tried two other CD-ROM drives in the PC! No CD disks work in the drive. I also formatted the drive prior to installing W2000.

If other cd drives worked fine than that specific cd drive is faulty. Cd drive drivers are automaticaly installed with windows instalation - there is nothing wrong with the drivers they are installed and they work ok. Problem is hardware based.

jacob1 ... now you mislead us :)
so .... what I understand that you've tried two other CDROM units and they don't work either ..... is that correct?
If so, you might have a controller or IDE cable problem
