Sony VAIO FR 105: It does not read CDs

My laptop has no problem playing DVDs but for a while it has stopped reading CDs (data/music/software/etc) spontaneously. Sometimes I have to tilt/hold the laptop at a certain angle/position before it reads the disc. I'm not sure this helps as the position of such tilt is not constant. It just fails to recognise the CD in the first place...I suppose the problem lies there but am not sure of what to do. Thanks for your help.

Sounds like you may need a new drive. If I remember correctly those run about $100 and if you feel confident and read the directions (and research it correctly on the internet) you should be able to install it yourself.

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,


This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks
