Typical HD install doesn't require a driver, though the system should be ready for it. I suggest you check the Dell support website and verify what bios updates maybe present for your model#. While there query their support forum on this topic. If bios status is behind, do the update it *may* address the problem. If possible see what the bios update actually addresses. But since, you have a 2.1Tb HD, that alone makes it somehow unique. To add further all the other devices just stacks on the issue if they are related at all. It maybe treating the HD as a BR drive only because the capacity issues or is close to what BR is and defaults to it.
Samsung may offer a FAQ on this topic, query or review their support website. How is it treated as a BR player, is there an actual message/error/display to that effect?
I just bought a Samsung HD204UI, which is a 2 Terabyte hard drive. When I plugged it all in my computer installed a driver for it. I run Windows 7 on a Dell XPS Gen 5. It's been updated with a few more hard drives as well as 4 gigs of ram and a new graphics card.
It seems to me that it, for whatever reason, thought it was a blu-ray player and installed the blu-ray player driver. I looked on the Samsung site for a driver specific to this hard drive but to no avail. Does anyone know what I should do or where I should look? Should I call Samsung or Microsoft? Will either of them actually help me? Thanks a lot.
