Windows 7: Samsung DVD writing (leadout) takes forever

Samsung DVD writing (leadout) takes forever

I am generally quite satisfied with my Win 7 system.

There are only two quite ennoying things:

a. My Samsung DVD-writer Samsung SH-S223L writes data quite quick, but lead-out takes foreever, while leadout should only last less than 1 minute according to the burning information, takes up to 25 minutes each time I write a DVD.

b. There is also an enormous delay in printing. I own a Kyocera FS-1030D. It was always a very reliable and quick tool, but with Windows 7 it takes up to 1 minute before the first page is printed. Afterwards it is quite quick. This ennoying delay is even effected if only one page is printed.

Would be grateful for any advice

Sorry, I use Ashampoo. I tried several R- DVDs. My DVD writer uses SATA (AHCI)
