You need to right click on it in device manager, go to update driver. Make sure you have the CD that came with the device (or you can download the drivers from sony's website, just google "crx880a drivers"). This will install the device.

First, I would try burning at a very slow speed to see if this helps. If it doesn't help and you think the burner is just worn out you can buy a USB burner for about $50

The whole thing looks like this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Then on the right hand side look for something like upper and lower filters and delete the upper and lower filters....

Optiarc CD-RW CRX880A Reads CD/DVD, FAILS to write intermittently


To my knowledge, that is a firmware issue. Go to http://www.sony-optiarc.us/en/support-service/downloads/fw_cd-writer-dv-series3.htm and click the last link, which is the firmware download.zip for your updated firmware. Install that, and try again. If you have any problems, repost and i can try helping again.
