Unplug and plug in the powercable then try again. Be sure that the cable goes in the powerslot as far as it needs.

Good luck to you

Premature failure of this drive appears to be a widespread issue. I have joined in a support thread at HP and encourage you to do the same:

My DVD-ROM tray opens only after many tries.


As per your information you done all the basic work. Hope you use little bit of oil drop in the side of the tray. If not then try that .If no success then there is a small spring available for tray in and out function. You have to change that spring from a service center or if possible then at home.
Thanks and waiting for your reply.

Can't run a dvd on my computer, can you help me


Hello there... In order for your DVD to play on your PC, you need at least the DVD-ROM or you install a DVD writer. You also can buy the external one - it's better. Hope this helps... :D
Best wishes, Ai-ai

CD-RW Door won't open with disc inside


You need to push harder in the pinhole, and do it while the power is off. That pinhole goes directly to a gear. If the gear is stuck and will not turn at all the drive will have to be disassembled to recover the cd.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


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.

Mike @ compurepair.

Check that the writable DVDs you are using are compatible (+/-) with your Sony DVD-RAM.
Go to Windows Explorer and check to see if the Sony drive is visible. It may not be connected or the Jumper switch may be set incorrectly.
Check you have drivers installed, take a look in Hardware manager.
Sometimes, it's a little difficult to copy CDs and DVDs when you have more than one burning suite installed - for some reason, they 'just don't get along'. Try uninstalling any suites other than Nero.
Or it may just be that your Sony CD-RW drive is just that, and your DVD-RW drive is just that. So it wouldn't be possible to write DVDs on the CD-RW and CDs on the DVD-RW? Though I would assume Nero would detect that and use your hard-drive as temporary storage.
In Nero SmartStart, have you selected the CD or DVD tab to correspond to the project you're burning?

CW088D CD-RW drive


All you can do is the usuall checks:- try, go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the pc and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically. if it still won't eject then there is a drive fault.
