Windows 7: Failure of Firmware Upgrade of Samsung DVD Writer using Win 7 (64bit)

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) Version 6.1 (Build 7600)
Failure of Firmware Upgrade of Samsung DVD Writer using Win 7 (64bit)

I want to upgrade the firmware of my new Samsung DVD writer (from Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology) to the latest version.
DVD writer Model:
For some reason it will not burn DVD –RW disks.

So I downloaded the latest appropriate firmware file from
Namely SH-S223C_SB04.exe which I ran under Windows 7 (64) bit OS

This executable program in turn started up “Tsdnwin.exe” installation program which then crashes (freezes) the system.
I had to use the Windows “Task Manager” to End the Task.

Can this be a compatibility problem for Windows 7 64 bit OS?
Or is my Windows 7 OS somehow corrupted?

Next I installed and tried ODD FW Liveupdate program and it too fails with an error message :

“that due to a system problem it failed to operate a program by
automatically connecting to it.”

Can anyone suggest what might be the problem here?

According to this page, you shouldn't need to worry about drivers or firmware. What I would suggest is completely uninstalling the driver from your Device Manager. Restart your computer. Windows 7 should pick up and install the burner fine.

Don't download driver and firmware files from anywhere but the manufacturers website, problems like this happen way more often when you do that

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) Version 6.1 (Build 7600)

Hi Kirsch,
This is a brand new installation of Windows 7 (64bit) ultimate.
As you suggest it should have picked up the latest driver for the Samsung DVD writer which I don't have a probem with.
The problem is that it will not burn DVD's, either with Nero Recode program or even windows utilities. It's OK with CD burns.
So the next step was to upgrade the firmware. I down loaded from the manufacturer the latest firmware file which
hangs under my OS and needs an End Task to escape. The tsdnwin.exe file causes the failure.
