On Soney.com or Drivers.com, you should be able to download the driver. You might also check to see if it needs a firmware update.

Sony and NEC Optical merged to become Sony Optiarc and they have an entirely separate website (with no link from Sony's site - for SOME strange reason).

Anyway hereis the link for a firmware upgrade for the AW-Q170A POS, er DVD RW: http://www.sony-optiarc.us/en/support-service/downloads/fw_dvd-writer-ad-series.html

Hope this helps someone

Samsung dvd driver software


I dont know what version your operating system is but you can try 2 things....
First; right click set up program fro your DVD drivers set up software and chose properties, then click on "compatibility tab" and place a check mark in the "run this program in compatibility mode " close up properties for program and try to install. if this doesn't work then try extracting the drivers to a setperate folder on your disk and run the driver update wizard from the device manager in windows, tell it NOT to search for a driver to install that you will install from a list or other location and navigate to the folder where you extracted your drivers and choose the drivers you downloadedd for you burner then reboot

Sony DVD RW AW-Q170A Burning Problem Plzzz.....Help me out: i have two drives, 1) Sony DVD RW AW-Q170A 1.70 Ver 2) Sony DVD/CD-RW Combo RYK4 Ver My "Sony DVD RW...


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?
