Question about Sony (dw-u10a-black) DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer


Having installed NORTON 360, during the final part of the installation when I was optimising my computer by deleting temp and temp internet files, the drive tray opened. When I close it the tray just reopens. When I boot up the tray opens, closes and then opens again, remaining open. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Norton but this does not help. I have also tried to upgrade both the driver and the firmware . No joy. Please help thanks Clem

Hmmm I suspect that it is possible that the drive has faulted.. they seem to do this randomly.. the ONLY way to really test this is to A:Remove and test on another PC etc. B:Replace the drive and see if that make a difference. Otherwise ya just end up chasing ya tail. G L.

Cd-rom stopped working

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.
Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

How to install nortons

If you are trying to install Norton from a CD/DVD, insert the CD/DVD into your CD/DVD drive.

If the autoplay option shows up automatically, click on "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and it will start installing Norton. Now, during the installation, you must follow the on-screen instructions.

If the autoplay doesn't show up, open your computer, right click over the CD/DVD drive and click on "Open Autoplay". Select "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and Installation will now start.

If you want to install Norton from a downloaded copy, double-click over the downloaded package (****.exe) and follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Norton 360 install has replaced/overridden DVD drive

Hi, I can certainly understand how you feel and hope I can help.

error 19 isnt necesarily a corrupt driver, it can be 2 drivers trying to use the same resource (as in norton's backup drive and your cd drive, for example)

Try this - Click the start button, right click on "Computer", select "Properties", then click "Device Manager" in the upper left hand corner.

Open the bit that says "CD/DVD Drives" and try right clicking on the drives there and selecting "Update Driver Software". This will probably do nothing. Don't worry, I didnt really expect it to. Now right click on the drives, and select "Delete" and then reboot. This will reset the drivers for ya.

This fix usually DOES work. Most of the time. If it doesnt work, try the ones below.

Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs - a Mr Fixit

The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to Windows Vista

When you insert a CD or a DVD, Windows Vista may not recognize the disc

Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media - A Mr Fixit

CD/DVD drive does not appear in Windows Vista, or you receive this error during Windows Vista setup after booting from the DVD (AHCI)

CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device

Hardware devices not detected or not working - A Mr Fixit

Hope these help.

No Internet Connection after Installing Norton 360

I had same problem. I went to Start\All Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore. I picked date before which Norton 360 was installed. It got my internet connection back. I'm not even going to try Norton anymore. Time better spent trying to get my money back.

DVD+-RW plays DVD video without sound

if you did not install the wires to the motherboard ( a small set of wires- I think it's 4-pin) it will not play the sound- ( that's if it requires that wire)
you can also uninstall it in device manager, restart and let windows re-install it again because software may have overwritten some important files-

finally the software that plays the dvd may be buggy in that it mutes the sound- check the toggle (it may be on mute on the screen) I always uninstall it and use interactual dvd player that comes with universal dvd's ( like the Bourne moveis next to me right now)

for stand alone software- I prefer Nero as Roxio overwrites everything- Nero is friendly- playing dvd's , burning etc...

Hope it works for you
