Drivers and Device Driver Errors
Drivers are little bits of programming that allow your hardware to talk to your Windows. Without it your hardware will not work properly. Your disks will spin, but you’ll get gibberish or the “Windows cannot load the device driver for this software” error message. In this case, you’re going to have to update the drivers for the drive. They could be corrupt from a virus or malware infection, or just out of date. Either situation, the fix is the same. Update the TSSTCorp driver.
Update TSSTCorp Drivers
The first step in updating your TSSTCorp drivers is finding out which drive you have. To do this you need to go into Device Manager and get the model of your drive.
To do that, follow these steps:
- Go to Start
- In the Search Bar type Device Manager
- Press Enter
- Go to “DVD/CD-ROM Drives” and write down your model information
Now we want to go to your computer manufacturer’s web page and download the latest TSSTCorp drivers from there for your drive. You’ll want to look for either your computer’s model or the drive model itself under “Support or “Downloads” on the website. Save the file to a location you can remember, because we will be going to it in a minute.
Was the file an exe file? Some manufacturers like to make it easy on their customers like that. If the file is an exe file, all you have to do is double click the file and it will self-install. On the other hand if the file was not an exe file, we’re quite prepared to walk you through the installation process.
To install the TSSTCorp driver follow these steps:
- Go back to Device Manager from Start
- Go back into “DVD/CD-ROM Drives”
- Double click on your drive
- On the “Driver” tab click “Update driver”
- “Browse” to where you saved the file and “Update”
- Your computer may want to restart
