Unreliable

  • Summary: Mine failed completely after 18 months. It had only very light use and I had never used the DVD write capability. There was nothing wrong with the installation. When I took it out and put a different one in its place, everything immediately worked.

Not up to much.

  • Summary: Did not appear to work that well, I have always bought Pioneer DVD writers and never had a problem with Pioneer. with the switch to Sata these IDE drives are more difficult. Lucky for me a friend scrapped their old computer and it had a Pioneer DVD writer which they had barely used so using this one and not the Samsung.

Samsung SH-S222A/BEBE Internal DVD Writer with 2 MB Buffer Memory

skimmity, Amazon
19 July 2014
  • Summary: With the Samsung SH-S222A/BEBE Internal DVD Writer with 2 MB Buffer Memory I am somewhat perturbed. I fitted the drive as before with no problems, Windows XP installed the drivers for the device, and i tried to burn a CDR (as I previously had done before with reasonable CDRs TDK), but the Samsung SH-S222A/BEBE Internal DVD Writer with 2 MB Buffer Memory refuses to burn the discs, and the disc remains blank. I am using either NERO10 or Roxio Easy Creator media Centre.
