Try the DVD disk in some other computer, to ensure that the disk itself is OK.
Try some other "known-good" DVD-disk in your Toshiba SD M1502 drive.

Or, spend $40 and purchase a brand-new, CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the faulty device.

Where do you get the drivers for MATSHITA CD-RW CW-7586


Windows NT and 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 have "built-in" device-drivers for all CD-ROM, CD-writers, DVD-ROM, and DVD-writer devices. So, there's no need to "download" nor "install" any device-driver.

If you want _FREE_ software to help you create/burn disks, access: http://WWW.MajorGeeks.com and search for 'AShampoo Burning 6'. This is _FREE_ software that works fine.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

Is the hard disk drive is in secondary slave? If yes, change it to master and your dvd is into slave. Refer to the jumper settings at the back on the drive. If not work, your bootable disk may defective. Try other a botable disk.

SONY DVD RW AW-G170a


This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
