Hi friends, this video tutorial will present a method to update firmware samsung optical drive (TSST Corp), this operation will be done in the operating system is a fairly simple job.
Update firmware is necessary to update some features that did not exist at time of product on the market or to correct some bugs, these bugs can occur because of very rapid launching products on the market or because immature firmware versions.
Many of you may have noticed the unit's optics some small problems, for example a few years ago my optical drive ASUS DVD-RW burn, but DVD + RW, the problem we solve it through a firmware update at the DVD RW optical drive.
The method presented in this tutorial video is available for Samsung optical drives but the procedure may be similar (not identical) for many models from different manufacturers, Samsung optical drives are recognized by Device Manager titled "TSST Corp", do not be surprised If you see any brand scored with Samsung, although I have bought Samsung.
For full security throughout the firmware update, it is advisable to use a Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) source, if you know you have trouble with the power supply, if you have no electricity problems, it is not it is imperative to use a UPS, however it does not take long to update the firmware of the optical drive.

  9. ms long, I have a question for a driver cd for lg yum could give iauw site where you can sal

  10. Howdy!
    I do not know, mind to mind with joy about the novel - this tutorial - I met a situation these days and I want to know if anyone has ever hurt her and that might be ..
    Specifically, they say get a PC that would have potentially faulty hardware because the installer gives "space insufien" hard to 20gb.Pun in DVD_RW-height optical drive .. Samsung Hiren CD, intending to check / LLF / partition, cd hardul.Acel only what I've done, it's relatively new and I went on all PCs so far .. but this does not boots .. They have taken an optical drive, get another place Hiren and try to boot ... same thing, that nothing .. remove all the cables, motherboards, let alone DVD and try to boot .. nothing .. I think a have a BIOS virus which I have heard .. and do a quick update bios ... disk and then attempt to boot from the CD again .. nothing .. I changed some optical drives, controllers IDE / SATA, and nothing .. Finally, put that CD in another PC, do not place the CD opens and concludes that the CD was damaged and I try to boot it .. even if too were reasons of failure was again posted low speed ..
    Another anomaly was that I started on a powermax floppy, hard drive and I visited, but the tests and trying to low level format, gave me the hardware is irreparably damaged and must be replaced .. I tried their utility and dedicated from Seagate, the same lucru.Vreau to mention that I especially PowerMax revived dozens of hard drives regardless of brand ..
    Using another optical drive, I booted xpsp3, I never took into account errors and installed, but by mistake I put the system on D instead of C.. Okay, say you installed .. and thought of so many attempts something happened and go .. try to boot sp3 same but the optical drive of your PC .. and you go .. Rapid optical drive and put one on which I installed, and ditto .. no Taking impression we go .. "deja vu" .. check sp3 CD on another PC .. and not seeing him at all .. just like the one with Hiren before .. Ok for this CD were same company, I said that maybe somehow we can be spoiled or I wanted to heat or are of poor quality, and I tried sp2 ... which in my optical drive boot made in original optical drive did not work, and put everything in my unit stopped working, so I experience this "cost" 3 CDs ..
    I mention that I put the DVD w7 on the original unit has booted but did not go further
    after restart never booted nor any w7, but another surprise .. check dvd drive is still valid ..
    And mentioned that I looked to see if somehow those units scratched CDs but are in "perfect condition", just can not read ..: D
    So in conclusion somehow that unit destroys CDs .. but how? What could it be? a defect or virus to activate write and overwrite cd?'s possible?

      Yes it is possible, and should not necessarily be a virus! It is possible that the optical drive is defective have been damaged, hit, smashed, shattered, and have suffered a shock or that have shoved a broken CD and CD deformations to be moved or dezacsat laser beam focusing lens making the laser focus and concentration them to be higher than normal when reading and thus remove or simply burn the data are on CD.

        I checked w7 dvd .. and go, so the guy did not crashed .. it seems to be selectively destroy only cd dvd.Ar not deserve a firmware update? Of course if you say mechanical failure, nothing but him fix ..
        It's hard to believe that a shock might increase the power range, usually opposite happens ..

  11. I do not know if it has anything to do with the optical drive, but I did update the bios because speed and CPU cooler was over 5000 rpm.Dupa update, same speed, I put another cooler, so I do not think it's normal to be so .. mention that after installation the system works normally without any problems.
    It could be messed temperature sensor, he "believe" the processor "hot" and deaia have from the start that speed ... anyway I have also encountered situations where it so far .. I think it's faulty board basis ..

  12. very good tutorialu now I have a question I first installed the driver had an older version on Windows 7 not be able to burn only CDs DVD + those DVDs I no longer go now I hope I can burn on the minus, now installed in the BIOS and driver to be permanently installed or every reinstallation of Windows need to install driver dvd-rom

    • nicolasVery good tutorialu now I have a question I first installed the driver had an older version on Windows 7 not be able to burn only CDs DVD + those DVDs I no longer go now I hope I can burn on those with less, now installed in the BIOS and driver to be permanently installed or every reinstallation of Windows need to install driver dvd-rom

      Driver's driver and firmware is firmware. Firmware is a deviceului minibios of the driver is not the same! And installed in flash memory from CD-ROM is not in BIOS! So how many times can you reinstall Windows because the firmware is stored on the device.

      I'll try to get lamuresc.Acel "firmware" spoken of in this tutorial, is actually "BIOS" of a device, a set of instructions that coordinates the operation of the device components respectiv.Firmware has almost any device that is typical cell phone , cd-rom, mp3 player .. even washing machines .. Ok, so this firmware is stored somewhere in memory of that device and if updated, maintained even if deviceul move, if your DVD-RW other pc .. drivers are another story completely different firmware and "tell" an operating system how to work with that device ...

    Answer Congratulations to those who gave an answer, because I have this problem myself on Optical Drive Asus DRW-24B1ST, which is exactly the same problem, you put a CD in Windows XP SP3, I booted him CD, if they put a DVD with Windows 7, I booted it and upload it but the problem is the optical drive and no hard drive, nor the motherboard, but the problem is my fault because I downloaded the Official website for the optical drive Asus.com a program called E-Hammer Utility that fact, they say it destroys CDs, DVDs, with a certain laser intensity, that He May Make an outline on CD or DVD at the beginning of the CD or DVD, where to start burning, and that's why I say that I was decalibrated were Dezstabilizat concentration Laser laser were knocking on disc , and I say that because it's broken, for me to help me with some advice, have an idea is well received by e-mail [Email protected]
