    my dvd drive wont play any discs

    I have a TSSP Corp DVD-rom TS-H352A dvd rom drive, It wont play any discs.
    I have tryed dvds and cds didnt work.

    I have tryed device manager it says the device is installed and working properly, it makes all the right noises, the light flashes like normal it spins for a while then stops.

    if i go into my computer and click on the drive it says plz insert a disc and try again.

    i did have roxio and nero installed

    nero 6 reloaded
    roxio easy dvd copy


    Then I uninstalled roxio easy dvd copy restarted the computer still dont work.

    im not sure wot to do now.

    i think the technical term for this 'fookered'.

    Buy a new one. Sorry.

    Agreed. DVD drives are dead cheap now and easy enough to change, even if you've never installed / changed any hardware in your pc before.

    Yep. I had a reasonably new DVD writer, messed around with new DVD writing software and it went the same way as yours. Only £30 for a new one these days, replaced it and had no problems since.

    As stated above, the hassle free option would be to spend another £30 and just replace the buggered drive

    Is the drive in question even a writer? That model name would indicate that it was just a ROM. A ROM drive can be picked up for about £10 (seen cheaper, but probably rubbish).

    Are you sure you haven't mixed up the DVD drive with the onboard cupholder?

    I had a simular problem and it turned out Alc 120% virtual drive was causing the problem,once i uninstalled the prog the problem was solved! It might be the Roxio doing this,so try uninstalling!
