Question about Sony pcga-cd71 - Vaio CD-ROM Drives (PCGACD71)
I'm using Sony vaio notebook, model:PCG-5K1L & i was looking for the cd-rom driver download. can anyone help?
SOURCE: sony cd driver
Hi, the CD doesn't actually require a "Specific Driver" in fact Windows has a "Built in Driver" that would work O.O.B. (Out Of the Box) If there is a specific driver then of course one would use that. However I think you will find that this is just an ordinary IDE CD. Simply connect it up and if it works it will "Show Up" in "My Computer" and be ready to use. If it doesn't work, then generally it is kaput.. and no amount of software shuffling will make and difference.

It depends on what Operating System you are using.Windows Xp have all the drivers for Sony and other brands of CD rom drives,same with Vista and win7.Just go to the control panel,click the hardware manager and the drop down menu will show the hardwares of your CPU.Look for the cdrom driver and see if it has the yellow baloon with exclamation-meaning it has an error or the driver is not installed.You can go to sony website and type in your cdrom drive model and it will give you the driver for it,download the software.If the software is detected and ask you to install it,click "yes".After the process is done,test it by putting in a music or picture cd,make sure the drive is clean too cause reasons why cdroms don't read is because of dirty laserheads.Buy yourself a cdrom lens cleaner disk,it helps me many times.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
