Problem with TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H652D ATA device

The CD/DVD ROM in my E-machine desktop has stopped working properly.

It reads and burns CD’s, it burns DVD’s but will only read movie DVD and not data discs. The Windows Vista operating system says a blank disc has been inserted and asks what to do with it?

Please can someone offer any advice, I have looked through the forums and seen firmware may be needed, in fact I tried a scan through ‘Driver robot’ and that said all drivers were up to date. I am an absolute novice on these matters so all help is appreciated.

Hi and Welcome!

are these video DVD factory pressed or discs written with a DVD writer?
In case only factory pressed discs work, then try to clean the drive.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the advice, I have tried a drive cleaner but no joy.

The drive only plays factory pressed DVD’s, it does however play all types of CD.

Hi,[QUOTE=kevh0;2468351] I have tried a drive cleaner but no joy.[/quote]One of these “cleaner discs”? An excellent way to scratch the lens :eek:

Sounds like dying optics then.
