SOURCE: I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD

CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats

My sony crx320ee cd-rw/dvd stop functioning normaly, cannot burn cd now. plz hlp!


i would recommend uninstalling the drivers completely and reinstalling them, however most drivers for cd roms cd/rw are preinstalled, and the only thing you can update is the firmware for the device itself. you may want to try unhooking the drive and rebooting the computer, then turning off the machine again, and reattach the drive, and restart. that might force it to re-configure and re-load the drivers

Hello: I have installed UBUNTU 10.4 into my computer and it does not recognise my SONY CD ROM (CRX1611). Is there a driver for UBUNTU I can download please ? Thanks, James.


  • Assuming that /media/cdrom0/ is the location of CD/DVD-ROM
  • To mount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo mount /media/cdrom0/ -o unhide
  • To unmount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo umount /media/cdrom0/
    I wonder if maybe the DVD is there, but it hasn't been mounted so try this above...usually Ubuntu should pick up the DVD and assign a generic driver. If it isn't there and you cannot mount it, then maybe it's faulty? You need to test it, on another PC.Hopefully this will help.

The machine won't recognize the cdrw drive.


First step is to check if your CD-RW drive is being recognized in the System BIOS (basic input/output system).
To do this, look for a hotkey listed on the first screen when you turn the PC on. Usually it's F1, F8, F9, F10, DEL, or ESC.
Once in the BIOS, go to 'System Information' to see your CD-RW drive's make/model.
If you see your Hard Disk there, but not your CD-RW drive, then your CD-RW Drive has probably died.
If you can see your CD-RW Drive there, then you need to restart your Computer with the help of a Bootable XP Disk in DOS mode with CD-ROM support. If your CD-RW drive letter is E (which is normally the case)type the following in DOS Prompt:
e: (hit ENTER)
dir (hit ENTER)

You should be able to see the contents (assuming e: was your CD-RW Drive to begin with)

If you can see the contents or the drive, then restart your PC normally and your CD-RW Drive should should be back on your 'My Computer'

If not, you need to go to FLASH your BIOS. This is how you do it:
Go to your computer manufacturer's website (Dell/HP/LG etc.), Search for downloads section. If you're asked for the model of your computer - right-click on My Computer (on your desktop or in the Start menu). and you will find it.
The BIOS will be an executable file (ending in .exe). There should be instructions on the website on how to install the BIOS. Run the BIOS file by double-clicking on it, the program will take your system down and reboot, installing the newer BIOS version.

Yes do that is a great idea. DL & copy to a flash drive, then run software from drive.

Computer turns off due to new installed hardware (cd-rom drive)


Then only one more check to do before we can fault the new unit , the new unit should have jumpers at the back of it. If it is the second unit of that type installed ensure the jumper settings is set to slave and not master which is default. If it is the only unit (cd rom/dvd rw) then you have a faulty new unit. Best way to is to insert in another friends machine to double check before taking it back.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


HI,
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )

Install to computer problem


Hi,

Sounds like a case of jumper settings. If the CD-RW was installed as secondary IDE to an existing hard drive which is the Master, pls set jumper to SL. They are located at the rear of the CD unit between the IDE connector and the audio out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
