Re: dvd drive problem-sony vaio laptop

Check in "device manager" for any hazard warning signs which indicate a problem with either the device or its driver' check, go to desktop, right click on "my computer" select properties, hardware tab, click "device manager" and check the list for those devices you mention. From here you can also troubleshoot and update driver if required.

My hp laptop dvd rw drive does not read any disk my dvd driver optiarc DVD RW AD-7560S ATA Device help me

Sometimes people push down too hard on the cd table, throwing it out of alignment---have you tried running an optical disk cleaner in it? Try that 2 or 3 times first, before you get the optical drive checked or maybe could just be really dirty.

Cd rw can not copy and read dvd

A CDRW is not capable of reading and writing files on a DVD. It is only capable of reading and writing files on a CD. If you need a drive that can read and write files on a DVD the you need to get a DVD+-RW drive.

The computer says it is not a recordable drive its a sony vaio and it has a cd-rw/dvd combo drive so it should be able to do it

Is there a disk inside the drive?
If so, remove it, and insert a different CD-R disk.

If that does not help, open Device Manager,
expand the CD-ROM branch,
click on the CD/DVD device,
and click REMOVE.
Allow Windows to reinstall the support for the device.
Try again, with a new CD-R disk.

DVD RW is no working

This will generally always be down to a fault with the drive itself, as you are still under the 12 months guarantee I would contact Sony to repair the machine for you.

Won't recognize blank dvd

Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck
