Question about Sony (1-796-293-13) Plug-In Module DVD Drive
Hi Sony dvd rw aw-g170a does not read a dvd game I purchased and comes up with message "Windows cannot read the disk. the disk might be corrupt ......" etc etc The disk plays in other DVD drives but does not play in my computer. I tried the DVD game in my brothers pc and it played and was recognized. I have windows xp service pack 2 on my pc with a samsung dvd rw tss1550 (E drive) and another dvd-rom being sony dvd rw aw-g170a (D drive). Please help. I think it is a software problem but I am lost.
This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
