One reason may be that your writer may be old and the lense must have died.

another is that the lense require cleaning.

the last one is that you need to upgrade the drivers and firmware for your sony writer which you will get here.

If all the above things dont work, replace it.

DVD Writer Troublesome.


i would begin by making sure that you have updated drivers installed for that drive. Even though it's new out of the box, there could be issues with the factory drivers that have been corrected. Please follow the instructions here for XP or Vista
You can check for new Sony drivers here


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Sony DRU 710 not writing DVDs or CDs


as with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking Sony for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays
