    Hello, does your laptop detect the dvd/rw drive on "my computer? Does the light of the dvd/rw drive blink when you insert the cd or dvd? Does it vibrate or try to load when you insert cd or dvd? Why I am asking all these question is to try and ascertain the fault. There are two things involved, Its either the drive is not well installed or the dvd/rw Rom lens is weak. Try cleaning the lens of the drive with a cotton board, if this does not work, then I'm afraid you will have to get another dvd/rw rom drive. Best wishes.

I that case, you will have to change the dvd/rw drive completely. I believe the lens is very weak.

Take care.

First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check
the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of
dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.


Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from HP website & install it.

Also check on HP website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.

I hope issue has been resolved.

Try flipping the unit over and backing out the one screw for the DVD drive. This screw is located just below the memory cover.
Pull out the drive and re-boot the unit. Allow to completely re-boot and shut down.
Re-install the DVD drive and try a NAME BRAND DVD.
Don't forget to re-install you removed screw.
If you still have problems, stop by radio shack and pickup a cleaner kit.
This should clean the len and put you back in shape.

make sure it is not a DVD disk you are trying to insert into your Drive because your Drive is a CD-RW will not read DVD nor burn onto it.

Your disk may be damaged or corrupt and the drive cannot read it.
your drive may need a firmware update from Sony.
use this link below to access Sony's website to download drivers.

OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

CD Burner not detected.


Check your different jumper settings in the drive; Is your CD RW drive set in the proper setup as a slave or master drive; or as a single drive.Check in your bios, in the disk management section if your CD RW is detected.
