Sony Vaio with Vista has stopped reading Data CDs

Hello,

My Sony Vaio has stopped seeing Data CDs - even after burning them correctly. It just sees them as a blank disc.

All the Data CDs work fine on other machines and the Vaio can view any other type of CD/DVD without a problem.

I've also tried all the obvious things such as cleaning etc.

Thanks in advance. i have acer aspire 4315 with the same problem.The dvd ram is matshita uj870qj.It can not read any kind of cd, but it can read dvd.It was fine when i've bought it, but not for now. I've already try to uninstalls the driver, but the problem still remain the same. Does anyone have some solution for my problems?.thx

Try and uodate firmware for the optical drive.
Otherwise DVD drive will need to be changed as this is hardware problem.

You need to remove the drive , reboot , shut down the computer. After it is completely shut down re install it then restart the computer. You might need to enter bios and make sure it shows up with proper settings there. If your unsure set the defaults then reboot. Correct bios if needed.

Sounds like you may need a new drive. If I remember correctly those run about $100 and if you feel confident and read the directions (and research it correctly on the internet) you should be able to install it yourself.
