    Its not a hardware issue.. I have tried uninstalling drivers, the high/low registry trick.. finally bought an external USB dvd player and the stupid Sony won't play that one either! Lights up, spins and thats about it.

    This is a Sony problem and given the amount of people with the same issue I am amazed there is no solution on their website. I contacted Sony support and they were clueles too. Last Sony for me

If the device is listed you can select it and click uninstall, then promptly reboot the computer and it will automaticly reinstall it, you should be up and running in no time if that works, if not it could be a registry error related to the upper and lower filters that could take a bit of skill to repair. please let us know if the lights come on at all or the drive spools up and makes any sound. if not you might be calling sony for a replacement


cheers

You may try with these troubleshooting steps.

These steps are applicable for either Windows XP or Vista OS. But you can perform the same in the Windows 7 OS.

Option 1: Try installing Sony Registry Update for CD/DVD Drives:

Option 2: Try deleting UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values as mentioned:

The exact solution is delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values and then restart the Computer.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
