When you say the TOC message appears in the bottom left, I'm not entirely sure where you're talking about.  Does this happen when you try to insert a disc or when you're actually performing a Read operation?  If it's a Read operation, copy and paste the entirety of the failed Read operation log.  And does this happen on all game discs or just this one?  Also what game discs?  PC?  Some kind of proprietary system like a PS2 or XBox?


Never mind, I think I see where you're talking about now.  The bottom left corner of the top window, the main window.  Where certain output messages appear.


So, you're not actually performing a Read operation, just inserting discs.  Do you get this same TOC message on other types of discs?  Non game CD's or DVD's?  If you get the same message repeatedly on other types of discs, I'd blame the slim model drive you got.  Try another different manufactuer's one or buy a half height model and put in it an external enclosure.
