SOURCE: cd not working on my sony dvd+-rw DW-Q58A

I too have the same problem. I've read many of the options and uninstalled drive etc but no success. The DVDs play perfectly, but put in a cd and its bump n grind and nothing happens.

Wondering .... I use the Russian MP3 music sites and burn mp3's to cd, could Sony have a DRM programme that shuts down their drives if you buy from such sites?

Ok Im clutching at straws

Hi, I have SONY DVD/CD rewritable drive unit, Model No. DW-Q28A. CD or VCD working but DVD not able to work .


The drive is compatible with the following DVD Disc:

WRITE SpeedDVD+R DVD+RW DVD-R DVD-RWDVD+R DL

DVD-R DL

If you are unable to burn using those disc then the burner is defective.

If you want to watch a dvd then you would need to purchase or download a program to watch the DVD movies.

Lb@aol.comsony dw-q28a will not play getting a code 41. do i need just a up dated driver or a new dvd/cd? thanks any help appreciated. lisa


Hi Liglb,



    • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform

    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot



Windows should reinstall the drive when the computer boots back up.

If this does not resolve your problem, try the following.



If you take all these step and you still can not play a CD/DVD, chances are your CD/DVD componet needs to be replaced. Good Luck,

    • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution.

Insert DVD...nothing happens...


You might have to open it up (assuming it's a desktop, not laptop) and make sure the cable is connected inside. The power might be connected, which lets you insert and eject discs, but the IDE (assuming it's IDE) cable also needs to be connected.

OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.
