    okay... are all you IDE devices set too auto? if yes then it's correct.



    try a different IDE cable.

    if that doesn't work try another header on the cable. if that doesn't work try another ide port on your motherboard...

The disc/writer dies not open.


Hi! When did this issue begin? You can perform some steps to make sure if the Dvd disk/writer is not working anymore . Try to Shutdown your computer and when you turn it back on Press F2 for Bios option (usually it has a blue screen background) Now check if the DVD drive/writer is detected or while on that option> Try to press on the eject button of the Drive . IF it's ejected it means that it is still working. Now boot on your normal windows and disable or uninstall any burning software that you have installed. Update the driver or firmware by going to sony website and look for the right product description/model and install it . Also update your BIOS then restart your computer then check if the DVD can read any disk like music/video. If it can read something reinstall your Burning software.. Hope this will help you . God Bless

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

New dvd writer recognised as old


Hello.

Go to Control Panel.

Locate System.

Locate your Device Manager.

Under your DVD/CD Rom devices, locate the old DVD writer. Select it. Right click and hit Uninstall.

Now scan your computer for new hardware, and install the new DVD writer with the discs it comes with, if any.

Dvd+writer/cd-writer


Maybe your pc has a virus, install an updated antivirus program and clean your computer. Then reinstall your driver software for your dvd + cd writer.
