Samsung SH-W162Z not reading rw's

My dvd writer is having problem reading rw’s. My computer is all up to date, even the firmware. It reads gaming cds, music cds, and dvd movies, but sometimes will read rw (cd & dvd). Only if I’m lucky it’ll work.

AMD Athlon +3200
1 ghz ram
thermaltake 430w ps

I also have the same problem along with many more with the same modelled DVD+RW.
My platform is also athlon.

I HAVE A FEELING THAT IT IS A PROBLEM WITH AMD64 CHIPSET OR MOBO.
THE DVD MEDIA IS READ BY MY OFFICE COMBO DRIVE BUT MY HOME PC WITH AMD64 DOES NOT.
SAME PROBLEM OCCURED WITH MY SONY CRX-300E COMBO AND YESTERDAY I BOUGHT THIS PAIN.

PLEASE HELP. I HAVE UPDATED THE FW TO TS01

ANOTHER THING : I READ ABOUT EDITING THE FW TO MY NEED HERE BUT UNABLE TO TRACE IT. ANY ONE HAVING IDEA OF THE SW TO DWNLOD/? PLS
