Sony Optiarc AD7260S shows in explorer, but does not detect CD/DVD


When you insert the disk, can you hear the motor spinning the disk?
If not- the Nidec drive motor failed. It may still be under warranty or you can try to replace just the motor if that is the case.

If you are hearing it spin, something on the pickup may have failed.

Will it play an audio CD? If so, the DVD pickup failed.

Windows vista updated and now my optiarc dvd rw drive won't work


You will have to uninstall the drive and reinstall again. I think the drivers for the drive is not properly installed. But if all this does not work, then I think you will have to do a system restore.

Best wishes

I have a sony optiarc AD-7200A .. earlier it used to detect my dual layer dvd's but now its not detecting them . It just makes a loud noise as if its trying really hard to detect it but it doesnt. It...


Here is something to try as a "quick fix" The drive's laser lens might simply have some dust or particles on it which may be causing it to fail to read the DL DVD's. If you use the drive heavily, and I use mine that way, constant opening and closing of the door always allows contaminants to enter--nature of the beast. Try a cleaning cd first. Did you change brands of DVD's? That's an annoying little phenomenon that I encountered with *my* new drive(LG).Some brands are more easily read than others--I've read lots of consumer feedback from people who've experienced this. Next, try a firmware update--the proprietary software that makes the drive operate. This isn't the drivers on your computer. A lot of times, manufacturers will come out with these special updates which fix bugs, have more efficient methods of reading media, or make the drive operate more smoothly. Hope I helped you.--Rick

Windows Media Center cannot detect a video DVD in the DVD-ROM drive, even when I have inserted a DVD into the drive This is the driver installed in my computer: Optiarc DVD RW AD-5540A ATA Device


Unless you use a DVD player software like power dvd or others, you can not watch dvd on your media player. This is a copywrite and license related issue. DVD players are paid players and this is why, microsoft can not include it on windows.

If you are not willing to buy a player now, try vlc media player instad (click here to get ) . Its free ofcource.
