Solved TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203P ATA not recognized anymore

Specs: Windows Vista 64 home premium, 2.664 GHz

hiya I have the Drive added above and upto about 2 months ago it was working fine, since then it's not visible in my computer, I'm running Vista 64 home premium

I've looked in device manager and the DVD/CD-ROM drives section shows the drive so no loose connections but an exclamation triangle orange is over it, I tried to update driver but none found on or offline, I tried to turn off, disconnect drive, restart, shut down, reconnect, restart to hopefully get the system to install it again but no joy

sorry to add all this I just wanted to add all that I have tried so far, what I need is drivers but a search on google only displays sites that list the driver names and no downloads or many sites trying to trick me by saying " download driver here " and I get the sites trying to give me driver detection software instead.

does anyone know where I can get the actual driver from? no 3rd party software just the driver.

Thanks.

The driver for all makes and models of optical drives is built in to all versions Windows from XP right up to Windows 8. It's a generic or universal Microsoft driver.

That's why you can't find one on the web - it's not required. Just like you don't need to install a mouse driver, it too is built-in.

Your problem is usually caused by filter entries in the registry which need deleting. Those entries are put there by cd burning or video software which you've installed recently:

✔ Best Answer

thanks for the reply mate, I ran it and laughed it displayed the writer but said device could not be found, I remembered I also had deamon tools installed which is a virtual disc drive used to open image files like .iso , they are handy to have instead of winrar archives which you need to unpack or instead of burning stuff you need onto DVD's

I uninstalled deamon tools lite and also uninstalled the drivers for the real disc drive then rebooted, it detected the real drive and installed the drivers it's now good to use
