So suddenly my TSSTCorp TS-H552B CDRW/DVD+/- DL RW cannot read DVDs. It managed to read one, after about 2 minutes of the system hanging. When I insert a DVD, explorer just hangs until I eject. Reads CDs fine.
I had installed some ISO progreams, ISOBuster, MagicISO and Alcohol 120, and thought they might be the problem but I uninstalled them and still the problem persists.
Nero Disc Information says DVDs are blank. I have the latest Adaptec ASPI drivers. I have uninstalled the device and reinstalled after restart but no luck. I'm on Win XP.
One note: When I do use CDs the drive sometimes CONSTANTLY spins the disc and when removed it is RED hot!
Removed the upper and lower filters from registry, still no luck. It plays DVD movies fine... But just can't read my data DVD+R's all of a sudden. I'm adament that something from Alcohol 120 or the other programs is left behind and is interfering...
Any remedy? Thanks.
