Samsung X series Notebook - DVDROM problems





turbosquid
I have a Samsung X60+ notebook which i perchased about 12 months ago, its a great machine but for some reason recently when i try to burn a DVD using nero or any other app it seems to take for ever. For example burnt 4.4GB to a DVD the other day nero's estimated time was 8 mins, nero's counter counted down and reached "0 mins remaining" yet the progress bar was only a quarter complete! it took around 40 mins in total!!! I have tried re-installing nero, i have flashed the firmware in the drive to the newest version, but still SLOOOOOWWWWW!
The other interesting thing is that i have duel boot with linux on the same machine, using K3B (a CD/DVD burning tool for unix based systems) i have no problems at all, which is not suprising because linux is a great OS.
It all seems to point to a problem with Windows.

Any ideas anyone?
