Vista TSSTCorp DVD Driver not installed properly

I was getting the following error message:

"Device driver software was not successfully installed."

TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632D ATA Device

I was able to solve the problem with my DVD drive with a TSSTCorp Driver by uninstalling the driver, running the following registry fix and restarting my computer. Just save the file to your computer and double click on it. It is like magic.
