Do I need a DC plug to operate the Sony DRX-820U burner? I don't seem to find it.


At the back side of your dvd recorder, near the USB port, is the connector for connecting the external power supply (12Volts, 3.0Amp) that is included in the box.

I have an hp using windlows vista and when I try to insert a cd the door on the dvd/cd writer won't open, either manually or when i try to burn a cd


This is the issue with your CD/DVD Drive. Better you change the hardware. Other wise take one pin and push in the hole which you can see in CD/DVD drive. That time the tray will open.

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but


This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal
