What happens when you try to use a cd-r90?

Not all cdrw's support overburning to 90mins. Check the manufacturers website for information on your cdrw.

You can damage your cdrw if it will not support this and you try and force it to overburn.

Recording Capacity CD-RW Disc: 700/650MB (Type 80/74)
Recording Capacity CD-R Disc: 800/700/650/550MB (Type 90/80/74/63)

According to the samsung site click here

you can burn 90min cdr's, what software are you using, if it is nero, have you set the overburn option.
