Samsung Portable Dvd Writer Installation

Samsung's new portable DVD writer was very easy to install. Thanks to its USB 2.0 interface, the entire installation process took only a matter of minutes. With no jumpers to worry about, it was as simple as connecting the USB cable. Once connected to our test computer, it took only a matter of seconds for plug and play to install the necessary drivers. After making sure that the drive was recognized correctly in the Device Manager, I was ready to start installing the software.

Software Installation:As I mentioned earlier, the SE-208GB comes with a CD full of software from CyberLink. If you have autorun enabled on your computer, the menu shown below will automatically come up when you insert the disc.

As you can see, this menu is pretty straight forward. Clicking on the "Installing Software" tab gives you the option to install the Cyberlink Power2Go Essential packages (Cyberlink Media Suite) as well as trial versions of Cyberlink's PowerDVD and PowerDirector software.
