Your Sony CRX 850E

My son has a Dell laptop with a Sony CRX850E CD/DVD drive and it has exactly the same problem! I see you had this problem back in July, did you get it sorted?

    Thanks for the advice. I've fixed the problem by finding a cheap drive off ebay - and it works fine now

Driver for SONY CDRW/DVD drive seems to be corrupt. Help, anybody

Go to my computer, and right click on it, when the window opens
click on properties, when window opens find devise mgr and click on it.

When devise mgr opens, look for cd/dvd rom drives, click on the little
sign in front of this and it will expand, and you will see the dvd drive.

Right click on the drive and when the window opens click on properties, now at the top you will see a driver tab, click on the driver tab, and it should say microsoft for the driver provider.

The drivers for the rom drives is built into windows,

Now click on the general tab, in the box, does it say this devise is working, or does it say the devise is not working.

You can go back to driver tab, and click on update driver, let it search
the internet for a driver, follow the instructions, it will either say it has the best driver, or it will find one and install it and you have to restart the system,

If the driver is there, and the unit says its working, then it is the drive that is bad, and you might have to buy a new one.

If you get any error codes or if it says anything, you can post back
so we can get this problem fix,if possible.

Sony crx 230ee

Hi Rolyn,

This problem is a result of the fact that Quicken needs to compress and adjust the file on the fly as it write it. CD/DVD disks cannot be edited on the fly so the program sees them as an invalid choice. Save your backup to the harddrive, when it's done drag and drop the file to the CD or use your CD burning software to make a copy on CD.

Hope this helps FixYa,

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.

Hi billi boy
It seems that that problem is with your software, so what you do now is ,Reinstall the software you got with your cd-drive (nero or roxio) and then try to burn the cd's .

Don't forget to give your thanks.
