Hmm ok lets try a few things :)

The first thing that we are going to check is to see if windows xp has the device disbled .. is so then reenable it

.1 Click start \ my computer
2.) Right click on local disc c and click properties
3.) slick hardware and see if your burner shows up there..
If it is there means windows recgonise it if not then it doesnt you can try the next step in any case

1.) click start then right click my computer and choose properties

2.) click the hardware tab, then choose device manager

3.) look at the tree view and find DVD\CD-Rom Drives
4.) click the + next to it and verify that your drive is there
If it is not then skip the next few steps
5.) right click on it and see if it says enable or disable,
If it says enable then click enable ,, if it says disable then proceed to net step..

OK SO ALL THE ABOVE FAILED THATS WHY YOU ARE READING THEN
1.) SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND UNPLUG IT
2.) REMOVE THE SIDE PANEL
3.) ENSURE THAT THE CABLE (IDE AND POWER) connecting to the drive is in propperly..
4.) plug it back in and boot

IF THAT FAILS THEN YOUR DRIVE IS DEAD AND YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A NEW ONE...

LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS

My driver for sony cd rom cdu5211 is lost and now my CD ROM is not reading any type of CD.


It depends on what Operating System you are using.Windows Xp have all the drivers for Sony and other brands of CD rom drives,same with Vista and win7.Just go to the control panel,click the hardware manager and the drop down menu will show the hardwares of your CPU.Look for the cdrom driver and see if it has the yellow baloon with exclamation-meaning it has an error or the driver is not installed.You can go to sony website and type in your cdrom drive model and it will give you the driver for it,download the software.If the software is detected and ask you to install it,click "yes".After the process is done,test it by putting in a music or picture cd,make sure the drive is clean too cause reasons why cdroms don't read is because of dirty laserheads.Buy yourself a cdrom lens cleaner disk,it helps me many times.

Cannot read CDs, can read DVDs


If it would have been a soft problem it wouldn't have worked at all, the driver is for the unit, not just for a function. Most likely it's a HW problem: either the laser died or the lens is dirty - try cleaning it.
Btw if your unit can't read cd's how those morons at the shop expect that you could reinstall (or repair) your Windows? 
Test your unit your self: take it out, put it in another laptop (or in an external case and attach it to another pc and check there. If it's dead then replace it with a new one - preferably a dvd-writer of any mark.
