My first thought would be to clear your system of Upper and Lower Filters for your DVD drive. Microsoft has a page with instructions located here: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-u...p;x=12&y=13

Also, could you tell us what model laptop you have?

I was reading some information regarding Gateways with this Samsung drive installed in them and having firmware issues after updating firmware at the request of Gateway.

TSST drives are made by Samsung. Just thought you might like to know that. :thumbsup:

Hope this helps,

If the upper and lower filters fix suggested above doesn't work open the Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc"). Locate the CD/DVD drive, right click on it and select "Uninstall". After it has uninstalled reboot the computer (it will be automatically reinstalled).

You could also try cleaning the laser using one of those drive cleaning kits
