    I'm looking for a driver for my Samsung SW-240B cd-rw drive. The
    Samsung website did not seem to have the device listed. The Windows
    Update service did not provide an option to download a new one either.
    Any reccomendations?

    Your system should already see the samsung as a cdrom.
    You then only need to install burner software that supports it. (feurio)

    My PC is not currently mapping my CD drive. When I look under Computer
    Management\Device Manager\.. the SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SW-240B driver is
    disabled with a exclam icon.

    Looking under properties, I see this message:

    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver
    may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

    When I click the option to Update Driver or attempt to run the
    Hardware Update, it cannot find a driver and asks me to locate an
    installtion media.

    `Easyfix` could be to delete the device manager entry, and then re-boot.
    `As above`
    It`s an IDE cdrw, as I`ve checked on the internet. So windows should see it
    as a cdrom, drive letter D: ; unless you`ve got more then one harddrive or

    Please give as many details as you can, so that we can help you to solve
    your problem.

    I have a 248F, both CDBurnerxp Pro and burn4free are freeware programs
    that work well with this burner. Burnatonce is also good, but with my
    burner there is a problem making multi-session cd's.

    help, so you might not even see my reply to you, as I`m not subscibed to the
    other groups.

    Anyway; you and others are quite welcome to assist the OP in suggestions
    and/or advice.
