Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...


Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

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.

I need to fix a problem with my Sony DVD RW DRU- 180A. I get error code 39. The computer doesn't seem to recognize the DVD player.


More than likey a fault in the DVD player.

Did it work recently?? If so then probably faulty.

Check internal cable and even try another one, I have had the occasional cable fail.

Not find disc in drive


Sounds like you need to install a DVD decoder, Roxio, WinDVD and PowerDVD are good decoders.

Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

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 )
