First I would make sure your iMac's EFI firmware is the newest. Follow this Apple TN:EFI & SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs.

I would also Check with Samsung on any firmware updates they may have.

Next you may want to review this: Depending on your model you may encounter issues with the optical drives port speed. Here's a good reference from OWC Optical to SATA Drive Converter Bracket Solution. It makes no difference who's product you have this is an Intel controller issue in the given model.
