Have an interesting problem here, once I installed my Samsung SATA DVD Burner and booted up my comp I noticed that during system checks it did detect it but got hung up when windows xp was loading. Eventually it loaded to desktop but windows did not detect a new device. Making sure I connected everything correctly I then tried to add new hardware but when it started searching it would randomly freeze then begin searching again only to never find anything. So not really knowing what the problem is I'm assuming it to be a driver issue? The burner did not come with any cd/software and I couldn't find any online besides some firmware updates that I have no idea about. My Motherboard is a GA-7vt600 1394, and I already have one sata slot in use for my hd so I know they are working and I've got my settings in bios setup for sata. The DVD Burner model # is sh-s203b. I was just wondering if anyone could shed some light on this. And is it even possible to do a firmware update if the device isn't even installed or being detected by my os, if that is the problem. Thanks.
