Re: combo drive opens and closes automatically

Arav you will have to open this unit up, sounds as thought the units slider has passed the spring sensor. with the unit open manually open the tray, there should be a spring lock release on the right with it upside down facing you. slide the tray all the way back in until you hear it click and lock. You may want to do this several times to make sure no plastic pieces have broken off. If you see or find a piece come out then achances are the spring lock mechanism has snapped, not uncommon on this drive. The screws are easily located on the bottom.

My DVD/CDW combo SH-M522C can read CD but can't read DVD!!!

try to run the Microsoft Fix it option to delete the upper and lower filters and if this does not work, update the firmware and try to use a lens cleaner. if nothing works including system restore, it might be time to get a new drive. hope this helps

Please help me to rectify the problem as under Windows cannot load the device driver for the CD DVD combo drive TSSTcorp CDW/DVD SH-M522C. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Hi rrcholan,
  • Optical drives never require a driver when used in Windows other than the one packaged with the OS. So, I would take the following steps.
  • First, open the device manager, uninstall the sh-m522c, then

    • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform-

    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot

      Windows should see the drive and reinstall the drivers.

      If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution. If this does not help, please leave a comment giving me more information on the problem and I will try to help you further.

Power Calibration error indicates that the drive hasn't been kept clean and is unable to guarantee a good write to disc...
I recommend a wet and dry CD/DVD Cleaner disk with Alcohol on the wet side (Like Tape Head cleaner liquid) and let it dry for a minute then run the disc again... if it still happens the drive is on its way out.
