Default This dvdr is driving me nuts

Im working on a dell, its like a month old.

The dvdr drive keeps phantoming back and forth, one minute its working fine, the next its

Device status: Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (code 37)

Its a TSSTcorp DVD+RW TS-H553A drive

It shows up in the bios, shows up in the device manager with the exclamation point. Its enabled in the bios as well.

I found a firmware upgrade utilitie from samsung (drive creator) and a firmware version for the drive, but it does me no good if i cant access the drive, or make windows realize its actually there.

This is really getting annoying. Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated!
