TSST corp is a Samsung drive most likely.
Maybe the drive it self is just bad?
You can replace those slim drives if you like to.
With most laptops this should be very easy, and not realy pricey.
Test a usb optical drive first if you have one. You can usually pick one up on sale for about $25 (blu ray more like $50) and they're pretty nifty to have, I bought one a long time ago and stopped buying optical drives for all of my desktops so it's saved me money.
ill probably get one tommorrow but is there any limitations on the slim drive i can get for the laptop to replace it like a specific manufacturer or model that will work with my computer or any drive that fits will do the trick
thanks for the quick replies.
Usually you need to make sure you get the right thickness, they come in something like 7 and 9mm or so. You might need a little metal adapter that's on the back of your current odd, which will take a jeweller’s screwdriver to remove.
