Samsung SE-208DB External DVD Writer help

Found 8th May 2014
Hi guys... I'm using the above DVD Writer and it's recently become corrupted/damaged and I need to re-install. Thing is, I don't have the install CD. I tried looking on Samsungs site to get install drivers but they have nothing (annoyingly). The only site I can find with "install drivers" for it is this
solvusoft.com/en/…ls/

which I dunno, seems kinda dodgy to me as it is the only site I can find regarding it.

So is my only option to go and buy another version of the product? My own fault really but just wondered if anyone had ideas.

This is the product in question

Only link I can seem to find for it, used to be in Samsungs site but it's been a while since I used one, up to you if you use the link or not but looks similar to the interface from memory

There is indeed but I couldn't find the SE-208DB
These drives should be plug and play with Windows XP or later.

As for burning files to CD/DVD, I use the free version of Ashampoo Burning Studio for that.

I wish it was. I'm looking at it in the device manager and it states "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"
Try it on another computer, to make sure it is not the drive that is faulty.

Assuming it works on another computer, you could try using Windows System Restore to go back to a time when it was still working. The problem most likely lies with Windows, as a USB drive like yours normally uses generic Microsoft supplied drivers to function.

The drive does not require a separate driver. Communication between the drive and Windows is via IDE (no matter if the drive uses PATA or SATA connections). The IDE drivers are indigenous to Windows.

The error you are receiving indicates that Windows has lost track of how to allocate application and kernel requests to and from the drive. These application and kernel requests are specified by Upper and Lower Filters in the registry.
