TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S162L errror code 0x80020043

Mac G3 500 Mhz with the above drive reports an error code of 0x80020043 while attempting to burn from DVD Studio Pro to an 8 cm DVD media.
Odd thing is this same machine burned to this same media just a week ago.

I have a single ide bus MB so the HD and the DVD player are on the one cable. I can not get the computer to boot after successfully installing the DVD and Firmware upgrade. If I change settings the (Master/Slave/Cable Select) then the drive shows up in BIOS and the PC boots. I search for new hardware, the drive is found, installed and will work until the PC is rebooted. Then though the bios show tboth devices it will not boot. If I unplug the DVD all is fine. The drive does not reappear unless I change some setting,but it does the same. I have tried new IDE cable. Drive does not show up on a USB IDE/SATA connector..
MB is and INTEL with 3 gig Pentium less than 6 month old. 512 Ram

The problem might be with you cable remove the cable of your writer and plug it to another id port after pluging in install the drivers of the writer, this should solve your problem, if not then go to computer manager in that disk drives in that find the name of your writer. first disable it for a second then enable it now go to its properties and in that just press the button of check for updates, your screen will blink once and your drive will be installed properly.

Hi There and Welcome to FixYa!

It's a good thing that you have a Windows operating system because these issues can be easily fixed. You can visit the site I provided through the link below (from Microsoft) :

Download the repair application by clicking "Run Now". Before initializing the repair after completing the download, make sure that there are no other running applications as it will prompt you to restart the computer for the fix to take effect.

My tsstcorp cd/dvdw sh-w162z wont play wont rip and burn.

your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
