Will first of all is it a dvd rom/ cd rom drive or just a dvd rom, because you cant use cds in dvd drives! Second of all, make sure your driver is fully updated, it might be missing something that it needs that will fix the problem after you update it!

How to Boot Sony Vaio VGN-S460 Laptop without CD/DVD ROM and With bootable USB


If the BIOS does not have the USB as one of the boot options then you cannot boot up with an USB memory stick.
In this case you need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a new one.

My dvd-rom doesn't read any dvd


Put in an ordinary CD and play to notice if the CD is detected or is trying to read- you can hear spinning noise.If so but there is no files read then the possibility that the laser head can be defective or dirty.
It is ideal to clean manually the laser head eye using a cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If drive does not work try reinstalling the drivers.

If this wont work the drive can be faulty and needs a replacement.

I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows Xp on my Sony N-TXN15p laptop. Now my CD/DVD drive isn't being recognized. What can I do?


You will need the drivers for the drive. When you look at the devices in device manager (devmgmt.msc) do you see any drives under DVD/CD-ROM drives?

Try installing a DVD rom. The sony unit installed in your laptop is a cd rom/burner. Cd roms will not play DVDs.
