Sony crx320ee can read CD but not DVD

Spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer -- this is less expensive than paying a technician to try to trouble-shoot.

Have you taken a CD that you have burned to another computer, to see if the other computer can read the CD?

Rather than spending $50 to $75 to have a qualified computer technician try to trouble-shoot the problem, spend $40 to $50 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?

You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)

CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats
