Windows 7: Can't Play Music CD's

Thought I would provide an update. I had given hope on this one - but at the back of my mind I always knew something wasn't right. So I happened to mention this to a friend who writes software etc. He directed me to this site - Samsung - SH-S223C firmware versions and told me to download the latest firmware - this is despite telling him that I had been on Samsungs website and had downloaded everything and that I had been told everything was up to date.

Anyway I downloaded the 3rd January update and hey presto - working and can play CD's in their rightful form - over the moon. Lesson is never trust Samsung's website - plainly I was being told a load of bollocks when it said the firmware was up to date.

Thanks everyone for your help in this and hopefully his will help others.

Glad to hear the problem is solved. You were right when you earlier said it would probably be something daft! Thanks for letting us know.

A salute to your friend and a friend indeed. Thanks for sharing that bit of valuable info.

And ya, Samsung had lost its credibility long ago in so far as optical drives are concerned.
