I have a TSST corp CDDVDW SH-S222A dvd writer IDE on my PC, running Windows XP Home. When I insert any type of disc, whether bootable, audio, data or commercial, the reader hums for a few seconds then goes quiet. There is no autostart and if I try to open the drive contents via Explore I get the eror message “Please insert a disc into drive”. I have tried updating the driver but am told I already have the latest driver. I have tried uninstalling and letting Windows reinstall, which it does but the reinstalled driver behaves just the same. I have tried the Windows Device Manager Troubleshoot function but this is unable to solve the problem. I have tried running Microsoft AutoPlay Repair Wizard but this is unsuccessful and results in “The wizard found problems but cannot fix them”.
Can you please assist. Thanks.
