Samsung Portable Dvd Writer Model Se 208 Driver Download Free Install Update
I had no issue with the single cable when I plugged it into my dock at my desk. Sounds like some of the newer ultrabooks just don't have enough power in their USB ports. Thanks for the response. I guess as you suggest, the only way to find out is to firstly run it off a split cable. I believe the writer is designed for USB 2. Come on Samsung - do the decent thing - I'm sure it can't be beyond your massive resources!
I am able to play DVD discs but once a BD disc is placed in the drive it spends ages not recognising the disc and then reports the drive empty to the OS Win I have tried the SE on three different computers with three different Win 10 builds Pro , Home and Pro I have tried using the manufacturer's supplied single cable and a split cable. All to no avail. I have also run scs. Oh and yes, I have tried different BD discs which I know to be working on other devices including a built-in BD drive in one of the devices, confirming that it's not the CyberLink PowerDVD software, if there was any doubt there.
The SE used to work with BDs a few months ago. The conclusion I have to come to is it would appear that perhaps one of the many Win 10 OS updates may have lead to this failure and Samsung do not appear to have addressed it by releasing an updated driver. I realise we could get into a blame game situation, with Samsung blaming Microsoft and Microsoft blaming Samung.
Corporations this big really need to talk to each other and work together to ensure our consumer products don't become obsolete after a couple of years or worse, months. The big corporations often claim they are doing their bit to combat global warming but how well does that argument stack up when they're selling products which will be quickly destined for the scrap heap because they can't be used, whilst being otherwise in good physical order?
I have been in contact with the Samsung Blu-ray writer support, who sent me a split USB power cable to try. Both I and my son who has the same writer and problem tried it and it makes no difference. This does not seem to be a power issue. I reported this back to support who have now informed me that they have no other solution - no firmware or driver upgrade. It would seem we all now have a writer that will not work with Windows 10 and neither Samsung or Microsoft or their affiliates are going to do anything about it.
Moderators, please take note of this wholly unacceptable situation. I agree with you that it's unacceptable. I'll chase up with our Head Office to see what we're able to advise here.
Please update this thread ASAP with the support required for this device under this operating system. This drive was sold to me on May through Amazon the year Windows 10 was released, it should have had supported drivers. I cannot find these drivers on Samsung's website.

I've read that this writer may not get enough power from a single USB connection.
It is suggested that a split cable be used to facilitate simultaneous connection to two USB terminals or that a separately powered hub be used. Could this be the reason this writer is not working as it should? I'm also slightly annoyed that this thread has now been tagged as 'solved'. I've removed the 'solved' mark.
