Have you tried updating the bios? this is easy to do and a new bios revision should be available from your laptop makers website. Failing that try and look on the laptops website in the Support section. Many other people may have the same problem.

i looked on samsung website. there is a bios upgrade but it does not say is for dvd-rw. anyway i downloaded but it has to be done with a flop disk when the computer boot up. i don't have a flop drive on my laptop. unfortunatelly can't find any posters on the forum related to samsung laptop.
