My Samsung SD-608 (DVD ROM) refuses to read discs. I have had cd drive problems before, but they were all eventually fixed with a bit of tinkering. I will insert a dvd (yes I am sure the disc is rated DVD and not CD) and the drive will hum, stop humming, hum again, and shut off. In windows me it shows up in my computer as (Compact Disc) and will not open. On the other hand, my Sony CRX140E works fine. Unfortunately this is not good enough as most of my files and blank CDs are DVD-ROM -_-.
