Ecdc 5 Not Recognising Samsung Sh-s202n Dvd Drive


MJWRAW

Recommended Posts

Please can you help - my ECDC 5 software is not recognising my DVD writer. It's a Samsung SH-S202N with Lightscribe functionality. I've applied the patch (ecdc_v5.3.5.10_basic) but still no joy. I've seen some posts which talk about editing the registry. If the fix is the same for this, please could you advise what value I should enter - according to Device Manager my DVD writer is 'TSST corp CDDVDW SH-S202N'. Thanks

You need the help of this man.

 

He's from far south + east, this is his night, he will be around later.

 

You do have a very new burner and it's not guaranteed to always work!

Hello MJWRAW,

 

Just on my first coffee of the day. :) I hope I can help, although version 5 is so old that I can't guarantee anything. It certainly won't support any of that Lightscribe functions. It works only for Creator, and not for Direct CD which allows you to use the disc as a USB flash drive or a big floppy.

 

Presuming from what you said you have access to one of the earlier registry edit posts and know how to edit your registry, here's what I'd suggest.

-Firstly, you'll need to apply the DriveUp patch 535V, which can be downloaded from the same Roxio page as your 535 Basic updater. The updater is for both Platinum and Basic, just make sure it's the V version. It's about 800kB. This is needed to insert the registry keys we hijack.

-a registry backup is recommended before you edit your registry.

 

 

Your DriveID looks a bit wrong. You say TSST corp CDDVDW SH-S202N but there's usually no space between TSST and corp, so the first part is likely to be "TSSTcorp"

 

In the second part of the ID, the CDDVDW is usually written CD/DVDW, so it's likely the second part is "CD/DVDW SH-S202N"

 

It's important that the ID is exactly right, or else you won't get a match with the table when you try to get ECDC5 to recognize the drive. I'll write up the entry for you based on my guess of the drive ID, but you will need to check again against Device Manager and modify my entry if needed. Okay?

 

Here's my best guess of parameters likely to work for you. Run Regedit and locate the first "device001" key which should be for a Generic Freecom48 drive. Replace the entry in device001 with this entry and try it out.

 

TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S220N,TSSTcorp,CD/DVDW SH-S220N,DVD+-R/RW,cdrmmc.drv,178,,9

 

Please post back if you need more information before you do this, and afterwards let me know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Brendon,

I'm wondering if you can help me also? I believe that I am having the same problem as MJWRAW.

I'm using a Lite-On DVD burner and can't get ECDC to recognize it when I try to do a "dataDVDproject".

 

I'm using ECDC 5 and have installed both patches, v5.3.5.10 and the driveup 5.3.5v.

Whenever I try to make a "dataDVDproject" I get the message "No supported DVD-Recorders were detected on your system". The drive works fine to burn CD's and it has burned DVD's using Nero software. I just like ECDC 5 so much better than Nero.

 

The ID string for my DVD drive is "Lite-On DVDRW SHW-160P6S". Can you possibly help me with editing my registry so that it will recognize my Lite-On drive?

I'm also using windows XP and WMP 11.

 

 

Thank You

Hi,

 

Well, the same caveats apply as I mentioned to MJWRAW, with an extra one for you. Windows Media Player 11 does bad things to the earlier Roxio systems, so even though everything looks as if it should work, WMP11 might kill it.

 

From your reported Drive ID, I'd suggest you do the same as I told MJWRAW, only using this value in device001

Lite-On DVDRW SHW-160P6S,LITE-ON,DVDRW SHW-160P6S,DVD+-R/RW,cdrmmc.drv,172,,9

 

Please let me know how it goes (or not).

 

Regards,

Brendon

Thank You for the help,

 

I tried it exactly as you said, but it still did not work. Then I thought that I would try changing the numbers at the end of the string to 178,,9 like you suggested for MJWRAW. That seems to have fixed it. It seems to working perfect now. Ecdc now recognizes my drive and I can make data DVDs. And it seems to work OK with WMP 11 also. I will try going back to WMP 10 if I have any more problems.

 

Than You again Brendon,

Thanks for the info. As it was a guess, I went for the parameter that Roxio was feeding to most of the later Lite-On drives [172]. I'm glad you had the nous to try 178 when 172 didn't work.

 

Thanks also for the feedback, it's appreciated.

Any chance that you might also be able to help me? I have a Memorex DVD+-RAM 530L v1 USB Device that is recognized by Windows XP just fine but not by Easy CD Creator 5. I have tried the basic update but still doesn't work. Thanks in advance.

Perhaps I can help. USB drives have always been difficult.

 

I'll need your ACTUAL Drive ID. Would you go and get a copy of the free utility CD-DVD Speed from http://www.cdspeed2000.com/ and run it.

Speed will show the IDs of your drive(s) in its top drop-down box, in the form "[1:0] BENQ DVD DD DW1640 BSRB"

The [1:0] is the drive position, BSRB is the firmware revision (your latest is 5M64 I think), and all the stuff in between those is the Drive ID.

 

Quote me your exact Drive ID please, paying attention to spaces and cases [capitals/lower case].

 

Regards,

Brendon

MJWRAW, I have the same DVD drive as you, a Samsung SH-S202 (TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S202N). I swapped out my old Creative CD Blaster (which is now in my older, FIC PA-2002-based PC), and I didn't install all the software that came with the Samsung, since I wanted to stick with my Easy CD Creator 5. It's already been upgraded with ECDC 5, v5.3.5.10 and the driveup 5.3.5v before, but I can't get it to work with the new drive. I'm using Win XP SP2 with IE 7 and Media Player 10.

 

Edit: I tried Brendon' registry tip, and after a few minutes, I got it working! Now I added a new session to a CD-RW and although I got an error message saying that the write may have been affected with a buffer underwrite problem with five seconds left in the process, a check shows the write was successful (maybe it's because I got several apps on). Thanks Brendon!

If you have the same drive as MJWRAW you could try the same thing as I suggested to him, however I doubt whether you'll get anything going if you're running IE7.

 

If you're going to keep updating your operating system and your hardware, you'll need to start updating your burning software to match it.

That's my long-term plan, since I'd probably move the ECDC 5 suite to the older PC and go up to a higher version on the newer PC. But for now, I got it working despite IE7, though probably not with DVD-RW, DVD+RW, or, double-layer disks.

Double-layer support didn't come out till ECDC 6.1, I believe, so that definitely won't work in ECDC 5.

7 something, I believe.

Yup, 7.1 was the first retail version to support DL. There was an OEM v 6 one that was packed with certain Lacie drives that supported it, but it was limited to just those drives. It was never available as an update or for purchase as a retail v 6. That's probably the one Dave was thinking of.

No... I probably mis-remembered 7.1 as 6.1. I never installed version 6, never had any version of 7 prior to 7.5, and still haven't bought any DL discs. :)
