Try downloading the VIAO update tool
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFS840W&upd_id=2775&os_id=7

this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.

problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website

Not all operating systems are compatible with all peripherals as you have found out. When that happens you have to bite the bullet and purchase a component that will work in the new environment. Sorry.

I had the same proble... and was SOLVED:

1-Download the propiate Audio driver from the VGN-SZ430N XP Support driver
2-Download Legroom Universal Extractor. Install the software.
3-Extract the driver using Univeral Extractor.
4-Browse through the extracted folder: TEMPEXEFOLDER; and then run the "setup" file from there.
4-It will install this way (you will see a quick splash screen of the Audio driver brand).
