Try this Solution : Download a firmware flashing tool, and an Updated Binary File for the Drive,
Then Run the Firmware Flashing tool, and Locate where the binary file you downloaded is, then click on Start.

The link for the Firmware Flahing tool and the Binary File for the drive is :
http://www.allfirmware.narod.ru/OS.htm
Its a russian site, but just scroll down and locate the model number of your Sony CD-RW, You'll see both the Firmware flashing tool as well as the Updated binary file for it just beside it.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!

Have the drive driver available. In Device Manager, delete the drive. Power off your system. Check the hardware connections for the drive. Reboot your system. There should be a prompt for the drive. Install the driver. If there is no prompt for the drive, the cable or drive could be faulty. Hope that helps.

Code 19- philips cdrw/cvd scb5265 ata device how do i fix it


Do you receive the following error message?
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you can first try running a Troubleshooting Wizard. If that does not work, you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19)
Code 19 is a common error message, your computer sends because NERO, Roxio, and similar CD/DVD recording software and also and update for Windows VISTA (KB938194) is causing issues. It can create problems with your sound as well.
Even if you uninstall these it will not resolve the issue, because these programs leave the problem inside your registry.
What is happening to your computer?
Device Manager sees the drive, but you get the yellow exclamation mark and it indicates "Your registry might be corrupted. (Code 19)"
How most people try to fix this error – and you are probably doing the same - without any luck…

If you try to uninstall the device and the driver and read new hardware - no change.
You can try to update the driver and the wizard will say there is no better driver found for the hardware.
You can try to run the install CD (copied it to a flash card and ran it from a flash card reader since you can't run it on the DVD drive) - same problem will occur.
You can't do a repair install of Windows since it is on CD and it won't boot properly from the drive.
You can try to use an external DVD writer (HP dc5000) through the USB port and it will get the same code19 error.
Even if you try manually copy the drivers listed in driver details for the device - no luck

Wont write to disc


Do not use the Windows built in utility to write disks. Install some cd/dvd burning software like Roxio, Nero etc.

Computer does not recognize it as a CD RW drive


When you try to write data to an optical disc, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

* You receive various disc write error messages.
* You experience issues with the drive and the built-in recording feature of Windows XP.
* You experience issues with third-party programs that you use to write data to the disc.
* You cannot read the disc in all versions of Windows.
* You cannot read the disc, or some files on the disk, by using an MP3 player.
* When you add files or folders to a disc that already contains data, some files are lost.
* Recording files to the disc is inconsistent.
* The disc recording operation is consistently unsuccessful.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Troubleshooting specific errors
If you experience one of the following errors, follow the appropriate steps to resolve the error.

* There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive.
This error can occur if the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device. This error can also occur if the device driver has been corrupted. To resolve this issue, see Method 3 in the "General troubleshooting" section and Method 1 in the "Advanced troubleshooting" section.

* Drive not accessible, incorrect function
This error message typically occurs when you try to write to a CD-R or a CD-RW, and the Windows XP built-in disc recording feature does not recognize the CD drive as a recordable drive. This error message may also occur if specific third-party programs are installed. For more information about how to troubleshoot this error,

when you access the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the CD-RW drive
* Error Deleting File or Folder.
Cannot delete file name. Files on this CD-ROM drive are read-only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.

This error message can occur because individual files cannot be deleted from the CD-RW. You cannot use the CD disc recording feature of Windows XP for random-access storage while you are writing to disc.

To set the service to Automatic, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
3. Under Service Status, click Start.
4. Try to write data to a CD.

Can't delete Songs.


if you have a cd rw (read/write) device and a cd rw disc then you can delete songs. same is true for dvd...must have dvd rw capabilities. if you have the rw capability, and still cannot delete then there is a problem with the hardware or software of the device or windows.

DVD-RW Name Changes When Blank DVD Inserted


p3, Did you try burning the DVD and it failed? You should try upgrading the firmware on DVD drive. http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/Model_Select.aspx?type=ODD+Products&typecode=300400&subtype=DVD+Writer&subtypecode=300405&model=TS-H552U&filetype=FM&language= Or, your just interested why Windows is calling your expensive DVD burner a measley CD Drive? Your Burner is an all-in-one.(I think) It plays(and burns) cd's and dvd's. Whatever program you use to burn has not informed Windows of its true intentions yet...Which is to burn a dvd or a cd. It doesn't know what you are burning until something tells it to. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
