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.

Where i find Sony C R X 140 E driver for x p ??? In go ogle i didn't find ... only virus ... please help me !!!


Hello friend
You don't need Sony drivers if you are using Windows !!!!!
Go here to Sony for your your cd player. http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/180
Click on the 'Dos Drivers' and read the words from there ....'NOTE: Windows operating systems have built in drivers to support your Sony CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM drive as a CD-ROM reader. No additional drivers are normally required once Windows is installed and running. However, you will need additional software to make use of CD Writing and DVD Video playback if your drive supports these functions.'

I suggest you re-install Windows XP from installation disks. after backing up your personal files which you will lose.

You mentioned 'driver booster' Yes ONLY ONLY ONLY EVER download drivers from , the Manufacturers site . Sony in this case,

There are lots of rubbish sites offering drivers this and drivers that. THEY ARE ALL RUBBISH !!!!!!! DON'T EVER EVER USE THEM
I cannot stress it enough tell your friends, tell everybody.

As I say , connect up your cd player and then re-install windows xp or whatever Windows version you have. Windows will automatically install its OWN drivers for your player.

Better still friend... buy a more up-to -date dvd r/w combi.player They are really cheap these days.

Cd rom does not run cd


Does your OS detect the drive ? Does it read DVDs or nothing at all ? try removing it and reinstalling it or use an external USB CD-ROM drive in the meantime.

I have a Sony Vaio, model PCG-5K2L. It will not recognize any disc drive when I load in a CD or DVD, and does not show up on "My Computer" ever. Please help!


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
"you only need to do the following"
if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer


Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

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

My solution would be to do a system restore but to restore your pc to before the problem occured. This helps with certain driver problems sometimes.
