Sony dvd dru-190a not able to read dvd's but reading cd's. Please help.


It sounds like the laser on your drive is gone. But there are a couple of things you can try first before buying a new one.

Uninstall the driver for it in Device Manager and let windows reinstall it automatically on reboot.
or use DriverEasy to install it > download here .
Uninstall and reinstall whatever burning software you use.

Take a look at this thread. Some of the tips there might apply to you.
