Samsung DVD Burner not reading specific disc
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have an issue with a Samsung TS-H552B DVD Burner. Reading CD's, Movie DVD's, and Data DVD's works without issue, however there is one single DVD that will not read. This particular DVD reads fine in other PC's.
For testing, I have temporarily swapped out the DVD Drive and installed the actual drive that read the disc on another computer. It still failed to read the disc when connected to the problem PC, which leads me to believe there is some software issue in the PC.
When the DVD is inserted, the system reports a CD has been inserted, and the content of the drive in My Computer is blank. Strangely though, Computer Management reports a DVD with 1.18gb of DATA, but without a boot record or File System.
I thought maybe some drive emulation software may be reacting with anti-copy software in the DVD, but there is no trace of any emulation software on the PC.
I am open to any suggestions at this point. It's a real doozie!!
