Is there a firmware update for the drive? As Hef asked is it really a SCSI Drive? From what you say it sounds like it is just a normal IDE drive. That would be a issue.

Have you tried to just remove the drive from the device manager and then restart? See if Windows can fix it itself.

yeah the drive is sata. there is a new firmware here. Samsung SH-S223F Firmware v ID02 - TechSpot Drivers
try to remove it first and let windows try to fix it before the firmware update. Are all of your sata drivers installed. The unkown device worries me a bit if it is a sata controller that could also be the problem.

hey I am almost having exactly the same Issue. I have Samsung SH-S223F dvd writer. I am able to read cd's and write dvd's but I am unable to read DvD's.. Although in the device manager it said the device is working properly and the OS is vista 32bit.

can you tell me what exactly did you do ???

sorry thats a diff problem, my vista was 64 bit and didnt want to recognise the dvd writer
what i did was run
regedit.exe
Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

delete lower filters
and upper filters


if i was you i would try updating drivers, or reinstalling
may even be a faulty dvd drive
