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

I have a HP DV5000Z laptop. I bought a new TSSTcorp TS-L632 (B) drive. When installed, Windows 8 automatically installed the driver for TS-L462A drive (not TS-L632). It is writing CDs, reading DVDs but not writing DVDs. Can anyone please help? I have already tried installing, uninstalling drivers etc. but I could not find TS-L632 driver on internet and Windows never got away from TS-462L. Please please please help.

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.

To make sure that software settings are not causing the problem, use the following link

Click Run Now

See if it able to detect any problems.

If it remain same, try to use a lens cleaner disc to clean the drive lens.

I have purchased a tsst ts-t633a external dvd +-RW drive to link with an acer aspire a0531 netbook. The drive will read and write CDs but not recognise DVDs. Can anyone help?


You need a software made for DVDs which you can use for the CDs to.
To read DVDs (and CDs) use Power DVD.
To burn DVDs (and CDs) use Nero DVD. You may purchase them almost to any PC shop.

This is just an example. You may find some free software on the Internet but if you are not used with this I suggest to ask a friend to help you or to buy a software as I have already said.

Vista Windows won't format DVD


CDs and DVDs don't need to be formatted, unless you're using a DVDRW (Rewritable) and want to erase what's on it. Regular CDs and DVDs are single-write onl, and don't need to be formatted before burning.

Need to set up my laptop with DVD RW drive to burn DVD


Yes, you can install the cd with the Nero Software in the new Laptop, and you will be able to write CDs or DVDs, but if you have a combo only you will only be able to write/burn CDs but read DVDs no problem.
