Hello sanhill665, try "Updating the Drivers"

Go to this "Website," and "Fill-in" or {Choose} any information needed to get the "Drivers" you need. Than you'll be able to "Download the Drivers."

First try a disk drive cleaner.

If still a problem, the only solution is to replace the drive.

Hope this helps.

Go to
1-my computer
2-then properties
3-then device manager
4-then look for your cd-rom
5-uninstall the driver (only if you have the cd-rom installation program from the manuf.) and restart your PC
If you don,t then find any conflicts in the device manager "like a yellow symbol" and if you find any try to "update driver".

Keep posting!

the fault is from the lens of your CD/DVD drive. The lens is weak and that's why its selecting disc.

How long have you been using this drive? I think its due for replacement.

You can try cleaning it with a lens cleaner. If this does not work, then you will have to manage the drive pending the time you get another one.

Take care.

this might be that your lens is weak and weak lens cannot write ... try reinstall your operating system and see if it works .. if it does not work please change your lens or the drive

Hi Albert, for what you say, COM ERROR, corresponds to an internal communication problem, try disconnecting the TEAC, from the power outlet, wait a couple of minutes and reconnect it, the problem should be solved
This is indicated on page 26 of the User Manual
If not, you would have a more complicated problem and I suggest you consult a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil
Hola Albert, por lo que comentas, COM ERROR, corresponde a un problema de comunicacion interior, prueba desconectar el TEAC, del toma corriente, esperar un par de minutos y volver a conectarlo, deberia resolverse el problema
Asi esta indicado en la pagina 26 del Manual de Usuario
Si no es asi, ya tendrias un problema mas complicado y te sugiero consultar a un servicio tecnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema
Saludos Franco Dosil

What operating system are you using?
NOTE: A usb floppy drive will not work when plugged into a USB 3.0 socket, you need to plug it into USB 2.0 if you have one.
