Finally I was able to burn cue's using Alcohol 120% (it's a program, I am not kidding http://www.alcohol-software.com/download.php). Using the following write options:
Write Method: RAW SAO + SUB
Enable buffer underrun technology (checked)
Rectify Sub-Channel Data (checked)
This is Ok for me while I wait for Nero to release a compatible version (yes the 15a doesn't work).
My Inspiron 8100 has a Samsung 308b but the same problems described here. On the Samsung site there is a 101 driver (DOM). DOM means domestic, not for products that are supported by the reseller, in our case DELL.
Installation of the 101 fails because it does not want to see the DEL code my device sends when checked. Is there a workaround to install the generic driver in a Dell.
What I read hear sounds as if some of you can do it. Perhaps the equipment check is not there for your model
Hi @all, since two weeks I am a proud owner of a 8200 Notebook. I also have the Samsung Combo-.Drive inside and as well the problems with burning.
I tried to install the Intel Application Accelerator 223 & updated Nero to 126.96.36.199a and now I am able to burn single/multi - session. I was only able to copy or burn a image file before. But the quality of the burnd disc is really not great.
I had before a slower 8200 with a Hitachi/Goldstar Drive and this was burning really well.
Now I have my personal solution until Dell or Samsung do something! I saw that LiteOn has a Slim Combo Drive named LSC-24081M. Specs : 24x/12x/24x/8x. This sound really good for me (as the same as Samsung).
Now I am e really lucky guy with a superb Notebook and a fantastic burner ;-) (the only problem is the front plate of the drive. maybe will Dell think about using these drives in the future)
P.S. the drive costed me about CHF 300.-- which is about 200 bucks in $ / and here the Link if you wanna know more : http://www.liteonit.com.tw/english/new_p_e/english--p-sc241224.htm

Just wanna let you know guys. Updated Firmware of the Samsung burner to U103 and installed Nero 188.8.131.52. Now I burnd about 13 CDR and not having any problems till now. I hope this is the solution. I only was not able to burn @24x, but I was doing other things in the background, so I think it is not a fault from the drive and I never tried again to burn at this speed.

red-man, where did you download U103 firmware from? i can't find it at the samsung site.
This is for a 324B right?
the above link doesnt work does anyone have it, who can mail me it please my email is
as you read there, direct linking is not allowed anymore. go and use the search function on the home page. you find at rpx1.com all firmware for all drives. just search yours
i cant seem to find it there even the link is totally dead. even if i use the correct link via the hompage.
i cant find it anywhere, can someone help me out.
