TSSTCorp SH-W163A (Samsung Sata drive)

Recommended Posts

I've seen quite a few problems with Samsungs drive here in the forum, not the same model as mine.

Though previously my drive has worked with CDBurnerXP, but after some version around build 1541 I couldn't burn anymore.

Unfortunately I don't remember which version.

I have no problem detecting the drive as other has using a Samsung drive.

Only problem is that it won't start burning, and it freezes up the drive, cannot eject etc as it probably allready gave the command to not use the eject button.

The drive spins up, the status says "preparing drive" and thats it. The diode light is not lit.

Windows hangs, applications goes in not responsive mode, though I can move the mouse and shut down systray applications.

I've checked that the drive works with Nero burning rom, and it works perfectly there.

Bios versions tested, TS01 & TS02
