Yes did at work and it worked -I was told that my Samsung P120S SP2X04C Series Hard Disk Drive is going bad- and probaly need a new hard drive- as there is no driver for this. Time to get a new one.

You got bad info diwax.

Your issue has nothing to do with the hard drive but the cd/dvd drive.
Replace the cd/dvd drive not the hard drive.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

"Hard Disk Drive is going bad- and probaly need a new hard drive- as there is no driver for this" The statement I quoted here makes no sense. HDDs don't need drivers, per se. (as a rule.)

wanderer is 100% correct. You've gotten really bad information. Replace your Optical (CD/DVD) drive.
