Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB40 PC Desktop

DVDs won't play or burn

I have an RB40 Sony Vaio. When I try to play a DVD, it acts like it's playing it, but there is no sound or video, only the counter at the bottom seems to work. I have tried to find a driver to download and have not been able to identify a soluion. I also tried to burn the recovery discs and wipe out hte computer, but it will not burn a CD or DVD either.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

Dvd burner not detected


Sorry, but that model is not a DVD writer. It can only write and rewrite CD's. It can only read DVD's.

Here is a page with specs:

Note under DVD>Write DVD it says N/A. (Not applicable.)

Dvd will not play movies


I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.
