During Operation
Operation
Handle the drive carefully to prevent damage
from an external shock.
Do not drop the drive. Protect the drive from
severe shocks.
If you do not protect it, this can cause
damage to the drive.
Do not move the drive while
in operation. Do not attempt
to open the disc tray by force.
Make sure that you close all
open applications before you
open the tray. Always use the
Eject button to open and close the tray.
Do not insert a pin into the emergency hole while the drive is in operation.
Keep your hand away from the tray while the drive is in operation.
This can result in damage to the product or human body.
Do not use cracked, distorted or damaged
discs.
A disc with a crack can break while you use
it, especially when the crack is near the
center of the disc.
Before you use the disc, always make sure
that it does not have a crack. If the disc has a crack, we recommend to make a
copy of the disc and use the copy. When you continue to use a cracked disc, the
size of the crack will increase. This will cause irreparable damage to the disc.
Do not use low-quality discs (illegal, scratched, damaged, etc.).
If you use such discs, Samsung is not responsible for the damage that this
can cause.
Do not put any heavy items on the drive.

How to use the AV Connectivity function
What does the "AV Connectivity" mean?
Although a normal ODD cannot be connected to a TV directly, the product can be
connected to devices (such as TV) that support USB interfaces and can then be used
as a USB memory device. "AV Connectivity" refers to this functionality.
How to use the AV Connectivity function
Touch the Eject button on the ODD twice within 1.5 seconds while the ODD tray is
open to switch the ODD to AV system support mode. At this time, the LED is lit.
1.
If you touch the button twice again, ODD mode is toggled between AV system support
mode and general ODD mode.
2.
Note
This product is set to general ODD mode by default. When the power is turned off
and on, the mode returns to the default mode.

Supported media types
CD/DVD types of media written in UDF or ISO are supported. (except for DVD-RAM)
* not supported Blu-ray media
The ISO and UDF formats
To understand the ISO and UDF formats, you have to understand the concept of file
systems on storage devices.
Since ODDs only support the ISO and UDF file systems, the data needs to be converted
to a file system that the AV system can recognize for the data on the ODD to be used.
Note
AV System: Supports the FAT32 file system.
File System: When an HDD, DVD/CD media or flash memory device is
connected to a computer, Windows Explorer shows the file name, the size and
the creation date for the files saved on the storage device, by using the
information saved on the file system. In addition, the file system stores the
locations of the data that make up the files on the media.
ISO: This file system is the most widely used file system for ODDs. This file
system is used when users save data onto a media in the ODD by using a disc
burning program such as NERO or ROXIO.
UDF: This is a file system for ODD media that enables reading and writing data
onto the media such as when using an HDD or USB memory device.
For your reference, you can format a RW media in the UDF file system by right-
clicking over the media in Windows Explorer in Windows VISTA or later.
Frequently asked questions
Is there a limit to the number or size of the files?
Up to 330 files are supported and files in the root directory and the sub directories just
below the root directory are recognized. The maximum size of a file is just under 4 GB.
There is no limit to the size of data saved onto a single disc.
In AV system support mode, it takes longer to recognize a disc.
It takes longer to recognize the discs as data on the ISO/UDF file system is converted to
the FAT32 file system for AV systems to recognize and transmit the data.
In addition, the time delay due to the conversion is determined by the number and size of
the files saved on the disc. (Approximately 30 seconds is required for 1GB of data.)
I have connected the ODD but there is no response.
Because the file system conversion takes longer, if you connect a high-capacity disc, the
connected device (such as TV) will require some time to recognize the Samsung external-
type ODD (1G = approximately 30 seconds).
Note
When recognizing the ODD, the LED of the ODD blinks continuously.
PCs, TVs, and other devices with insufficient USB bus power will not work
correctly if you use only one USB port.

The resolution of the images may not be supported by the TV or the codec (JPG, GIF,
BMP, etc.) may not be supported by the TV. In addition, if the actual image is in a format
other than JPG such as in the BMP format, the image will not be displayed even though
the image file extension is “JPG”.
Does the AV connectivity function allow me to connect to a device such as a TV
that only has video, photo and music playing functions?
The AV connectivity function basically enables connecting an AV device to any device to
which a USB memory device can be connected. However, the AV connectivity device may
be unable to connect to a device due to a power or compatibility problem.
PLEASE NOTE When writing to a device (such as a USB memory device or external HDD
that is connected through the USB interface) is required for some reason, the AV
connectivity function does not work.
Note
Since some AV systems have a timeout scheme for recognizing USB devices, if
recognizing a device is delayed, the process may time out and the device may not
be recognized. This may occur when the disc contains a big file or a number of
files.
My TV works as a Personal Video Recorder when an external-type HDD is
connected. Can I record data by connecting an external-type ODD to the TV?
Since, at present, the AV connectivity function supports reading data only, you cannot
write data to the AV connectivity device.
I cannot play a video file on my TV.
First check if the connected TV supports playing video through a USB interface.
If the TV supports this function, check if the video format is supported by the TV.
The AV connectivity technology is only for recognizing the connected external ODD, not
for automatically detecting the file format and playing the files on the ODD. The function
for detecting and playing files needs to be supported by the TV or digital frame.
For supported video, photo and music file formats, refer to the user manual of the device
to be connected (e.g. the TV manual).
Can I watch commercial DVD titles on the TV by using the AV connectivity
function?
To play DVD titles, you need a recorder that can decrypt the encoded DVD title. However,
since most TVs do not support this function, you cannot watch DVD titles by using the AV
connectivity function. To watch DVD titles, you have to use a DVD player or DVD playing
software that runs on a computer.

How to use DVD±R/RW and other discs
Important
The BD-ROM/DVD Writer lets you write DVD±RW discs with Cyberlink Power2go and
enables "packet writing" (high-speed recording) with Instant Burn.
The drive also lets you write DVD±R discs with Cyberlink Power2go.
Caution
It is illegal to make unauthorized copies of DVD or software titles. A person who
makes illegal copies can be held responsible for copyright infringement.
If you use low-quality discs, this can increase the recording time or make it
impossible to use the disc.
How to use DVD±R/RW and other discs
After your computer recognizes the [CD-ROM] icon designated to the BD-ROM/DVD
writer as the 'E:' drive, insert a CD-ROM or a DVD-ROM disc and make sure that the
inserted disc is recognized.
To play a DVD Video disc:
You need a DVD decoder board or DVD decoder software program. (Provided with
Power DVD)
Use Power DVD to change the region code of the BD-ROM/DVD Writer.
DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC)
DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC):
The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video discs (such as
movies). The motion picture industry has divided the world into different regions that
correspond to the regional markets into which the motion picture industry releases movies.
Movies worldwide have RPC codes, based on the region of the world in which they are
being sold. These RPC codes help to control and prevent pirating of new movies into
other motion picture regions before their release within those markets.
This drive supports RPC phase II. In the RPC-2 mode, users can change the local code.
RPC-2 is selected by default for this drive.
You can change the region code up to five times via an MPEG application.
Please contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative if you need to change the
local code more than five times.

Caution: Possible errors
The drive uses laser light to write data onto the surface of the disc. Writing errors can occur if
you use a damaged disc. Make sure to prevent the conditions below before you start to write
a disc.
Note
These settings are recommended for all drives.
Do not use multitasking. Disable the screen saver.
1.
A buffer under-run can occur if the system uses multitasking while the drive writes data.
Do not let any outside computer access the host PC while the drive writes data.
2.
An error can occur if another user accesses a network printer while the drive writes
data.
Disable the CD auto-run feature of all drives.
3.
If you insert an auto-run CD into another drive within the same system while the drive
writes data, this can cause an error.
It is recommended that you use the image file format when you write a large number of
small-sized files.
4.
When there are many small files to write, the transfer rate decreases and the Buffer
under run protection feature works at a more frequent rate. This causes a lower writing
quality.
If you are doing a CD-to-CD copy, it is not necessary to verify if you have available
space on your hard disc.
However, in the case of image files, we recommend that you make sure you to have at
least two times the amount of space needed for the data on your hard disc. This is
because image files are copied to the hard disc before they are copied to the media.
Do not use more than one type of writing software.
5.
Before you install a writing program, make sure to first uninstall existing versions of the
program or other writing programs. After you uninstall any software, restart the PC.
(The Windows operating system can be damaged if you install different language
versions)
Note
We recommend that you use the data recording software provided by Samsung.
If you use other recording software, this can cause an error.
To
The write speed for a disc can be restricted if:
The disc has bad properties, or there are other discs with bad properties under
the same ID.

The drive examines the disc properties to determine the best write conditions for the
type of disc. Because the two types of disc have the same property data but different
properties, it is often not possible to use the same settings. It is necessary to decrease
the writing speed to make the writing more stable.
If discs from two different disc makers have the same writing speed according to the
labels, but actually have different writing speeds, it is necessary to reduce the writing
speed.
Samsung standards to decrease writing speed
2.
Standard 1: If there are high-speed discs in the market that have very bad property
data, the writing speed is decreased. This also happens if there are low-speed discs
with the same ID.
Standard 2: Discs for which the speed was reduced, will be examined again. If low-
speed discs are no longer available in the market under the same ID as a high-
speed disc, the decreased writing speed will no longer apply to the high-speed disc.
Note
It is possible that you do not get good writing quality with discs from manufacturers
that are not registered in the drive's firmware.
We thus recommend that you only use discs from recommended companies.
Always make sure that the writing was successful before you put the disc in
storage. This is very important when you want to store important data.
(Samsung is not responsible for any loss caused by a backup failure)
Note
We update the list of supported media on a regular basis and make them available
in our firmware upgrades.
