Check that the drive is 'Reading'.
Put a disc in to play. If that is OK then it would suggest the 'write' lazer is dead.
To prove this try another burn software.
If still introuble - replace the drive - there will be no repair option.

Dvd writer's flap not going in..

Breaking of cd indicates that the cd is not aligned (tightened) properly between the spindle and the magnetic top, if the tray dos'nt align properly it may not lift the spindle up, open the drive and check for any obstacles in the tray path, important if your drive uses rubber belt to drive the tray in-out replace the belt, also check the magnetic top for breakage.

Samsung DVD writer

Sounds like you have done all you possibly can, it may well be that the drive has finally given up and a replacement is neccasary. You can try to repair the autorun .inf file, but i think a replacement. Sorry!
