DVD writer TS-H562D not working in new PC
Posted on 2007-08-01
I have just purchased a GM5472 PC from Gateway. It came with Windows Vista Home Premium, but I had it changed to XP. Additionally, all the programs and contents of my old computer's PC were installed into the new hard disk. Almost everything works fine, except for the four slots for photo cards, and the DVD writer. The computer has a TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-562D, Version GA01, OEM Code GA. DVD RAM is at drive H. It reads media all right, but does not write. I installed Nero 5.0, but it does not recognize the recorder.
I already tried deleting the LowerFilters Value Data at the Registry key, as suggested in a website, but the only change I got was that the drive is now DVD RAM (before doing so, it said CD ROM).
I also tried getting the drive from Samsung, but was unable to retrieve it.
Thanks in advance for you help.
