I have sony dvd rw aw - g170a but this drive is not working properly when i try play video cd directly into it. It do nothing. I have notice that in device manager there is yellow exclamatory! symbol. i...


The yellow exclamation point is telling you there is a problem with the device. First thing to do is uninstall the device using your hardware or device manager. Reboot. Your pc should automatically recognize the device on reboot and install the proper drivers. If not then you will have to go to the Sony website and download & install the drivers manually. If this does not fix the problem then your drive has went bad & will need replaced. Good luck & I hope this helps you out.

Can not read DVDs by SONY DVD RW AW-G170A


I believe the read head is not aligned properly. I would send it back for a replacement. I have had this happen several time after the DVD burners/readers had many hours on them.

SONY DVD RW AW-G170a


This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
