    I have a Samsung TSSTcorp SE-S084C DVD Writer for a couple of years. My laptop always connect and disconnect the DVD writer. When i plug in with no DVD, the drive is OK, no disconnection. But when i put DVD, the problem arise. Sometime the drive can recognise the DVD, but when i click on it in My Computer, it disconnect again. What is really the problem.. I think the problem is from my laptop because my family's laptops all work well with this drive. One thing i realised, my laptop does not install ALL driver of the drive. I already compared my list of drivers with my mother's laptop driver list.

    What is the problem actually..help me please..

    Thanks.

    is this also related to driver you think? because i already compared the driver list, and i saw that my laptop has fewer drivers. I tried to copy the driver from other laptop, paste them into WINDOWS/system32/driver but still not work and the ' Driver Details' in device manager does not detect any changes i made.

    I actually want to find a free solution first before i get my hand to my money.
