This seems to be a controller related issue.
What Sata controller is used to connect the drive, how is it configured in Bios setup, and finally, what drivers are used for this controller?

Edit: my crystal ball mumbles something like “Jmicron”…
Look here please: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f105/203b-gigabyte-sata-controller-jmicron-232260/ (same problem)

ok im using GA EP45-UD3R mobo…
the samsung drive is connected to GSATA i believe
i think it is a Jmicron chipset

in my device manager at SCSI and RAID controllers…
it shows ‘‘GIGABYTE GGB36X controller’’

my pc and win aquiry does not get my drive model name correctly…

due to that im unable to update the firmware…
how is this happening??

Please read the thread I mentioned in my previous answer.

Limited compatibility of that controller with optical drives, as already stated in the FAQ.
If you don’t have a Raid setup, connect your drive to the Intel controller.

You might play around with the Bios options of that controller, setting to “IDE” (if possible), uninstall Jmicron/Gigabyte drivers and use Windows default drivers or install latest drivers from Jmicron. Maybe there is a combination that works for you.

Michael

hmm but im not really good at Bios thing…
i will try to install new firver

Michael…

there another thing…
when i put in a dvd movie… my pc kind of like hanged
the movie didn’t start to play… i cant press anything
only able to move the mouse
even alt+ctrl+del does not work…

how come??

Might also be a sign for the incompatibility of drive and controller.
