    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

What type of CDs should I purchase to use with my Sony DVD RW AW-G540A ATA device to write/play video?


Most CDs should work. If you are looking for high quality (least error rate) media, use Taiyo Yuden media, they seem to be one of the best. Verbatim and Ritek are some lesser, but also good brands. If your burner won't work with most CDs, there is likely something wrong with it.
