Here's the first thing Sony says on the subject:

Ensure the Sony drive is set as a secondary master by itself. If you have another disc burner or a zip drive on the same IDE cable, please separate them.

My MSI P45D3 has a single IDE channel...

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

Play original movies only, no play copies and no burned copies


My parents had a Sony drive that was the same. The guy at the store says that some sony models have a chip that detects the type of disc and will only play originals.

I am lookinf for a restore driver for my sony double layer player


yoiu do not need drivers in windows 2000 and above for any cd/dvd player/burner. check if it is listed in your hardware, if not then check inside if it is actually physicaly connected.

you did not provide any information what is the problem, what operating system and what computer specs are. if you require more detailed help, do provide these details first please.

Hi there,

Download the most current drivers for your Chipset. Uninstall the drive via Device Manager, restart your system and let Windows install it. Update to the latest Windows Service Pack. Download the updated Firmware version and internal drivers from here:

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 )
