your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

Driver ?


Here's an easy way to download and install / update your SONY CD/DVD writer drivers:

Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve the drivers for you.

You can download this free driver scanning tool from here: http://xpdrivers.com/index.cfm or directly from this link: http://xpdrivers.com/download/download.cfm (copy/paste the link, if you can't click it).

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

Hope that helps,
Regards,

Sony Q58A will play DVD but not audio cd or data cd. Help!!!!!!!


Are you sure that you have the file type associated in your Windows operating system to a Music player like Windows Media or iTunes? This may be the most common reason that music CDs won't play.

My laptop is working very slow


Fristly, Defrag the drives. Secondly, use some SW to clean the Registry. If these dont work then, Restore to an early date when it was running fine. If still No Go, then make a backup of your data and re-install Windows or whatever OS you have.

System file corrupt and CD Drive doesn't work to run Install CD


First: Boot into safe mode on "bad" laptop...

Open a command window...
(start, run, "cmd.exe", <enter>)
At the command prompt, type:
"CHKDSK /F"
It will probably say something about cannot lock the volume, do you want me to schedule a disk check at next startup? Say yes and reboot...


2nd:

Does the other laptop work, and does it have a functioning CD drive?

Yes?

Copy the I386 directory of the XP install CD to the USB Hard Drive using the working laptop.

Then, boot "bad" laptop into safe mode.
Plug USB HDD into "bad lapttop", hope it is recognized and copy the I386 directory to the c:\ drive.
After the copy is complete, run

C:\i386\WINNT32.EXE

Choose upgrade if you wish, but I'd have the program replace the existing windows installation. Leave the HDD as is if asked, do NOT format it. This way, you can navigate around and find your "old" data on the HDD after Windows has finished installing.

Have your installation Key/Serial No. at the ready.

Cant even READ DVD


the XP driver really should work appropriately. I might assume that the drive is damaged (which happens to me frequently with older DVD drives).
