Windows 7: Need help finding Samsung DVD drive drivers

Need help finding Samsung DVD drive drivers

Just installed Windows 7 Pro 64bit today (big mistake). One issue with this OS is that it can not detect my DVD/CD drive.

It is a Samsung SH-223F/BEBN 22x Speedplus. Placing the CD with the drivers on it does nothing.

The drive opens/closes fine, but Windows 7 refuses to recognize it or run anything that is inserted. It worked 100% fine in Vista. I used this to boot/install Win 7 itself a few hours ago. It shows up in the BIOS.

I can not install essential programs of mine. I need to get this fixed quickly or else I will have to revert back to Vista...

And no, Samsung does not list the drivers on their website. Typical since they are a shit company.

Thanks for your time.

Hi,

Found this:

Windows 7 Compatibility for Samsung SH-S223F DVD Burner: Samsung. Drivers, Updates, Downloads

But there also seems to be quite a few problems with this hardware on other forums. Is there a firmware upgrade available?

Regards,

Samsung doesn't seem to directly host one on their website. Not through their download section. Some googling found a hidden page on their website with 1.5MB "files". I have no idea if these "files" are drivers or not. Downloaded, unzipped, and attempted to run the .exe.

Nothing.


In other news, Microsoft Security Essentials detected the following "threat":

Program:Win32/PowerRegScheduler

I've pretty much only been to 4 or so websites on this PC (all safe)... so doubt I picked up a virus. Is MSE just having a false alarm? I've never used it before, I used to use Avira.

Did MSE give you alert after you downloaded and tried to run the EXE?

Download, install, update and run FREE Malwarebytes - lets see whats hiding on your PC.

Mbam (quick scan) and Spybot came out clean. I am pretty sure MSE is having a false alarm. Can you double check and see if you have this file on Win 7 if possible?
