Hello preto,

What you probably have is bad lens. This is the main reason why DVD/Cd drives stop reading discs. You will have to replace the lens and it will be all right.

I cannot copy or read any cd's


It's time to spend $40 to purchase a brand-new CD/DVD-writer. This is a "user-replaceable" part within a "desktop" computer.

I just installed an LG 22x Internal Super writer DVD and my computer is not recognizing it. I have a jumper connecting the other drive. It is not picking up either one. Both open but nothing else. The...


ok your getting power to the drive thats a start, your computer is probably not recognizing because-:

1. you have put the cable in the wrong way around, turn off computer, remove power lead, try turning the cable around and placing into the drive the other way.
2. Is the cable connected to the motherboard (main circuit board)?
3. Try these things and put power lead back in and turn on, windows should detect and automatically install the relevant drivers.

Try this, any luck? if not get back to me.

Glad to help.
Brett.

Dvd burner not detected


Sorry, but that model is not a DVD writer. It can only write and rewrite CD's. It can only read DVD's.

Here is a page with specs:

Sony CRX310S Specs

Note under DVD>Write DVD it says N/A. (Not applicable.)

Dvd driver


I think ya may find the reason ya PC "Lost" the driver is because the DVD has faulted?

However if this is NOT the case simply Unplug ALL connections to the DVD, restart the PC, then shutdown... then re-attach the DVD Power & Data Cables... restart ya PC, "It" should thben detect and install the relevent "Driver" from it's own database.. ya should be good to go. If not then the DVD is Kaput sry.

Hope this helps
