DRIVERS come with the OS.

Check the connections (IDE/PATA and power).
Try another IDE cable (80-wire if possible). :slight_smile:

I have a tsstcorp cdw/dvd ts-h492c but for some reason it will not pick up that there is a Data dvd in the drive but will pick up cds. Any ideas on what can be done to fix this problem?

this should work.

Uninstall the cd/dvd drive from device manager.

Then follow the steps below.

  1. Log on with Administrative Privileges

  2. Open the Registry Editor:

a) Go to Start then select Run.

b) Type regedit and click OK.

  1. Backup you registry by:

a) Highlight My Computer by clicking on it once.

b) Click File (Windows XP) or Registry (Windows 2000), then Export
Registry File.

c) Select export range All; to ensure your entire registry is backed up completely.

d) Select where you would like to save this backup, name the File, and Click on the SAVE button.

  1. Remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values:

a) Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} (if there is more than one go to the first)

b) Highlight this key by left clicking on it once.

c) On the right hand side delete the values Upperfilters and Lowerfilters.

  1. Restart your computer.

this should work. it did for me

hey guys,
i have this drive on my work computer (not my own). and recently it has started opening randomly, or opening and shutting, or when i push the button to open it, it doesn’t stay open but closes right away. again, not all the time but completely random. sometimes a music CD is in it and sometimes it’s empty.

any ideas of what is going on?

when i go into the device driver tab it says it’s working properly - and it does read everything fine. it just opens and closes sometimes for no aparent reason.
