Question about Sony (CRX230ED) CD-RW Burner
I use the adhardware wizard it says that a problem occured and that i may not be able to use the device which is true. it just wont work. in the device management screen it shows that the drive is plugged in but has yellow circle with a black exclamation mark in it.
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 :
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.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
check the leads that attach your cd-rw make sure connections are secure
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps you
