Did you use the "powered" usb port on the right side? The two ports on the left are for low powered devices only.

What exactly is the problem? Is it not being recognised when you plug it in? Does the device manager show a warning triangle and say the drivers could not be loaded? I had this problem on one of my laptops when I plugged this same DVD drive in - turned out to be an issue with the CD burning drivers from iTunes. You could try uninstalling iTunes or follow these instructions which worked for me (I then had to reinstall iTunes):

I have a Samsung SE-S084 drive hooked up to my Dell Mini and it works great -- it even works when plugged into the left-side port (although, as noted above, the higher-power right-side port is recommended). Does your drive work when connected to other computers or another USB port? It sounds like it might be defective. Great drive, BTW.
