Buying new recorder ... will samsung do it?

i have a plextor 8432 but i’m having problems with the new 1.09 firmware and dma mode
i just can’t enable dma in bios. and with the new 1.09 firmware and i can’t enable dma at all without get my pc freezing while recording a cd.

i was thinking on a samsung 8x8x32 drive.

i would like to know about it’s DAE performance and quality and also the quality of the cds after burning and the media compability
