TSSTcorp TS-L632 (B) drive is writing CDs, reading DVDs but not writing DVDs.


First check that your drive is indeed a DVD writer and not a 'hybrid' i.e. CD writer and DVD reader. If it is, go on the manufacturer's site and see if they have Win 8 compatible drivers - Win 8 is a fairly new OS so they may not have had time to get a new one out.

The CD drive of my laptop Acer Aspire 4530 is not working. I've tried four CDs/DVDs, but it doesn't recognise them. I tried restarting. Is there something that I need to check on my laptop?


Open "My Computer".
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then you have a hardware problem (no electrical power to the drive, or the "data" cable is not connected, or the electronics inside the CD-ROM have failed).

Take your computer to a qualified technician, and get him/her to install a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" one.

I have replaced the dvd rom/cd rw with dvd rw, but i am unable to write or burn dvds..........it still only possible with cds


Hi. You need to install the burning software that came with your DVD writer to make sure that you have the latest burning software compatible with your unit. If you are using older version of the burning software like Nero or PowerDVD, you need to uninstall the old version, re-start your PC and install the new software that came with your DVD burner. DVD burning is not possible using file explorer.

Dvd writer will not burn disc images, it will burn all other types ie music cds, data dvds, file backups, cant find name of dvd writer to get firmware update


Usually, you need software to read an 'ISO' disk-image file, and to decode the file, and to burn to a CD/DVD,
e.g., "AShampoo Burning Edition 6" is a free download from http://www.MajorGeeks.com that will do the task.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Select and expand the CD/DVD branch of the tree.
Double-click the CD/DVD drive.
Click Details to dislay the name/model of the device.

I have DVD writer, but I could only write cds. I am not able to write DVDs.


Change your burning setting to dvd. Or is it really a dvd writer? Could it be only Dvd combo drive?

Or use higher version for your burning software that can burn dvd. I think Nero 8 or 9.

Cd-rom has write in different format


try a CD or DVD from a different package to make sure your CDs were not defective,
try to use your cd on a fairly new pc, if it is seen as empty your dvd writer is broken and has to be replaced. it's cheap about 20$
You only need to take it out and see if it has a IDE(large) or SATA(smaller) connector to replace it with one that has the same connector.
