    Can't burn DVDs or CDs anymore

    I have a windows 8 laptop. It's a few years old. It has always worked great until recently. I cannot burn DVDs or CDs anymore. It plays them fine. It's a TSSTcorp CDDVDW SU-B08AB drive. When I look at the driver it says Windows did not start a related device driver. To learn more, click the Driver tab and then click Driver Details. It says the driver has the current software. If I'm trying to burn a cd sometimes it will burn around half of the songs and then say there's an error. Sometimes it plays those songs and sometimes it doesn't. It did let me make a Blueray DVD once recently that played fine but nothing since then. I've tried multiple programs for burning a DVD or CD and no luck so far. Are there any programs that would clash with the drive? Any suggestions?

    When I look at the driver it says Windows did not start a related device driver.
    If you right click the device in Device Manager->General tab. What is the device status? Is it working or is there an error code number?

    Download and run Filter Load Order Tool. Select your drive. Click Clipboard the paste the result into next post
