where can I get firmware for this thingTSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552L
This drive may be an OEM version, with proprietary firmware. Tell us the make and model computer that you have.
Compaq presario sr1720nx
There doesn't appear to be a firmware update for this drive http://www.firmwarehq.com/Samsung/drives.html
Don't hold your breath I doubt you will ever see one for your <HP> TS-H552L http://search.hp.com/query.html?lang=en&submit.x=7&submit.y=3&qt=TSST&la=en&cc=us
What's the Issue prompting your Interest in a Firmware Update ?
Might be time for a New Burner anyway ...
New 22x DVD Burners are only $30.00+/- ........LG GH22> http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2000100005+50001623+1036506653Samsung> http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2000100005+50001077+1036506653Pioneer> http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2000100005+50001167+1036506653+1036906731&name=2MB
$30.00 +/-You would do best to also get a new IDE cable - while you're at it ( $5.00 ... or so ..[http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010010001%20117752968%201177112212&page=1&srchInDesc=round&bop=And&Order=RATING"][B]IDE[/B]](http://[URL) Round ATA133> http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010010001%20117752968%201177112212&page=1&srchInDesc=round&bop=And&Order=RATING)
This is a tough one so far. Compaq doesn't show that particular drive in your computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1815875
I did find this: http://www.softwaredriverdownload.com/tsstcorp_cd_dvdrw_ts-h552l_firmware.html
which seems to indicate the drive is also known as a SH-W162L
And firmware is easy to find for that model: http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/office/optical-disc-drives/dvd-writer/SH-W162L/RSWN/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=supportProbably won't work though.
I found this firmware for the TS-H552U: http://samsung-odd.com/eng/Firmware/FWDownload/FWDownload.asp?FunctionValue=view&no=509&SearchWord=&SearchMode=&PageNumber=8&product_code=&os_no=
Still no sign of the TS-H552L.
Thanks everyone for the effort I have tried all of your reccomendations and decided to chuck this thing did not think it would be this hard thanks Hank Merry Xmas
