Question about Sony DVD 4x Recorder model DW-U10A (OEM of the DRU-500AX) (ELU10A) Burner
Hey guys i have a sony dw-u10a that won't play or write any dvds at all it says that there is no disk in the drive and that i need to put one in. can any one help
You definitely should call LG--your new gaget isn't working, and it is under warranty. Or try going to their website to see if they have any software upgrades--sounds like you have a bummer, and perhaps a reinstall from their website will do the trick.

I too have the same problem. I've read many of the options and uninstalled drive etc but no success. The DVDs play perfectly, but put in a cd and its bump n grind and nothing happens.
Wondering .... I use the Russian MP3 music sites and burn mp3's to cd, could Sony have a DRM programme that shuts down their drives if you buy from such sites?
Ok Im clutching at straws

CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the
optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start
operating on certain disks better than others.
In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.
Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD , or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.
If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.
Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.
