    I have a Samsung SD-616E DVD ROM drive. Just bought it a month ago. Works fine with all CD's and Digit DVD's.

    Now the problem comes when I try to run DVD's burnt by DVD Writers, like I have this DVD of a concert given to me by my frnd who can access it on his DVD ROM, but I cannot.

    I only notice this problem when I am trying to access "burnt" DVD's and NOT "pressed" DVD's.

    Are there any drivers or applications that need to be installed to read these DVD's ?

    I checked on the Samsung website and they do not offer any drivers. just instruction manuals.

    as per the site
    ur drive supports tese cd' dvd's

    DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-Video, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-DA, CD-ROM/XA, Video-CD, CD-I/FMV, Photo CD, CD-TEXT, CD-EXTRA.


    so if the DVD you trying to play does not come under these
    no software will work
    i.e it simply wont be read

    I am trying 2 play a CD which was "burnt" by one of my frnds and well its DVD-R and the list u gave mentions that, but I dunno what is the problem with it, it just DOES NOT read it, on the other hand my frnd can easily read it on his Acer laptop
