TSSTCorp CD/DVDW TS-L532M troubles

Same here! I have been using Vista on my HP Pavilion zd8000 for a month and it has been working like a dream… All of a sudden, my CD/DVD drive disappears! Code 39!
I installed WinDVD 8… watched a few films… rebooted, and the drive was gone!
What to do!?

do as described here
it applies to xp but theres a good chance it will work on vista aswell

Posting in capitals is rude… :rolleyes:

Mine is a TSSTCorp CD/DVDW TS-L532U in an Acer Aspire 3610 notebook. The symptom is exactly like the original posting by egorig:
XP sp2, can still play DVD (including MiniDVD) but not recognizing CDROM.

I have tried the MS KB tip of removing the upper/lower filter registry keys and found that did not help in my case. I just wonder how you guys eventually handled the problem (replacing the unit?)

I noticed the drive light stay on trying reading a good CDROM at boot time and after boot time, so I think more likely it is a hardware or firmware problem. I have clean the drive many times … please shed lights… Thanks
