      This update will replace the firmware in Samsung SC-148A and SC-148C CD-ROM drives. We recommend this update for systems that have a Samsung model SC-148A or SC-148C CD-ROM drive and have a problem reading or booting some CD-R media.

      The CD-ROM drive should be setup as the Master drive on the secondary IDE controller to use this update.
