    The dirve is about a year old, pretty sure it's not broken, I think it has something to do with Vista 64 bit version which I upgraded to recently nevertheless, I will take it out and try it another in my old system.

An exclamation point means that there is a problem with the device. Could be as simple as a corrupted driver. Try unistalling the drive from Control Panel>Add/Remove Harware. Reboot; then reinstall drive. Hope this helps.

    How old is the drive? If it's an older drive something internal may have broken.

    It's most likely a Vista Driver problem. You can check the Vista Hardware Compatibility chart on the Microsoft website to see if your drive is listed. Good luck.

Sony DRU-810A fails while burning second layer


Hello,

The Problem Is That You Do Not Have Enough Space In Your Windows Drive.

If You Have Just about 1GB Still May Be Not Enough According To Your ROM

You Should At least Have 4.5GB Free In Your Windows Drive For Disc"s to Perfectly Burn.

Good Day,

My SONY DRU-810A DVD Writer doesn't work with TDK DVD+RW Disc


some dvd brands dont work with all dvd writers, so your option is to try another make, if that works ok then it's not a writer fault it is just that the media make is not compatable. if you start to see problems with all makes of disc then the writer laser is faulty and a replacement drive neccasary.
