I have recently bought a Samsung SH-S223F DVD writer. I have attempted to burn a Wii game, a film on DVD and also a music CD and all 3 failed. I have tried these with the latest Nero and ImgBurn and they both fail.
It appears it fails at the write in/ setting the speed. I know it is not a media problem as I have taken the same media to my mates dads house who also owns the same DVD writer and it works perfect for him using ImgBurn and we also used the same ISO.
I'm not too sure what his firmware is but mine is SB02, I have installed the software from samsung which alerts me when a new firmware is available which it reports is SB03 but it always fails!
My PC is XP SP3 with 3GB of ram and a stupidly large amount of disk space free so I do not believe it is that which is causing the issue??
I hope someone can save me before I go returning the drive back to the retailer!!
