Question about Sony (CRX320AE/U) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
I'm trying to install Adobe CS3 and the drive will not recognize it. I've tried other disks and it works no problem??? I also tried this disk in another computer and no problem. What can I do???
You need to make sure your drive can read CD-RW. That is a different format than "+" and is not recognized in a lot of drives. Also, what software are you using to burn the document?

Cd/dvd drives don't actually require a driver to run. They use "class filter drivers" which are supplied by a burning program like Nero or NTI. These "class filter drivers" only add functionality to the drive. Windows just uses a generic driver "MSCDEX" to run them.
A couple of things to try:
Uninstall the drive. Open Device Manager, click on the + sign next to CD/DVD ROM drives, right click on the drive and select uninstall. Exit and restart your system. When windows loads, it will recognise a hardware change, and will ask if you want to install. Before you click anything, insert the disc that came with the drive (if you have one). This should then install, if not, let windows search. If windows can't find anything, select "I will choose the driver manually" and look for your drive in the list.
Another thing to do, is download the most current Chipset drivers for your motherboard (which I would recommend anyway, even if the above worked).
Update the Firmware version and the internal drivers for your drive. These can be found here: http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/112#drivers
Also, update windows to the latest Service Pack (SP3 for XP and SP1 for Vista) if you haven't got them already.
If you have Vista, did you recently update to SP1 via Windows Update? If the answer is yes, please let me know.
Hope these solve your problem
