Grail Montes explanation above makes sense on several levels. However his visuals (pics) do not give an example using the Sony CRX230EE CD-RW in question. It also does not demonstrate a clear explanation of the tray motor belt he mentions. I will demonstrate this much clearer as well as introduce another cause which involves the Tray Gear. The Tray Gear can have broken teeth, or be misaligned because of attempts to pry (or force) the Tray Door open by other means than it was designed (e.g., with a screwdriver).

CD DRIVE DOOR WONT OPEN First Check the Data cables starting from the Motherboard then on the Drive Note on PIN1. It is suggested that a CD Drive should be slave to a Master HDD so set the Jumpers properly. If all are ok and still fails then the try the Emergency Eject hole. On many DVD drives there is a small hole on the front of the drive that is access to a manual eject mechanism. Use a straighten paperclip and insert it into the hole this will push the tray out. To repair this you need to change the Tray Motor Belt Look at this image >> For more Info on repair >>> Hope this helps =============================================== If you are having trouble with Newly bought items save your self from headaches by returning them and demand a replacement or a refund! You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.

Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.

SONY DVD RW AW-Q170A not working....

one reason may be that your writer may be old and the lense must have died.

another is that the lense require cleaning.

the last one is that you need to upgrade the drivers and firmware for your sony writer which you will get here.

If all the above things dont work, replace it.
