    the drive maybe just needs to be cleaned. there are cleaning disc available in computer shops.
    did you try different brands of dvd's? doesn't it play self made dvd's or does it even not play "bought" movie/software dvd's?

    well at this stage I would search the samsung support pages for firmware updates and if that don't work throw the drive away and get me a new one...
