Question about Sony COMBO |CRX850E SLIM % (CRX850E) Burner
I've been on the dell site and gone through all the systems check ups using the f12 button during start up, and the laptop is happy that the drive is functioning ok (Which it is, well, it make all the right noises and lights are flashing when a disc is in it) but it will not complete the 'read' test.
The drive sounds like its trying but i get nothing from any disc???????

Have you tried the latest firmware?

SOURCE: No firmware update available
why do you want or need a firmware update ?
if the drive is functioning correctly, it,s best to leave it alone.
Flashing a drive with firmware, can lead to an unusable drive. if you get a corrupt file-bad flash or power cut. you,ll have a pretty paperweight.
