Question about LaCie d2 DVD-RW Burner

2 Answers

Sony DRU-840a DVD-RW shuts down PC when blank discs are inserted.

I have a new Sony DRU-840a that gives me a blue screen (with various suggestions such as seeking driver or BIOS updates) when I insert a blank disc for recording. I have used it successfully on only a couple of occasions (with the Nero software supplied with it); it has never allowed me to back up any playlists in iTunes (same blue screen). So, it seems to be intermittent. I have successfully made data DVD's using Roxio. I've checked all the media and system requirements, and I appear to be more than fine. Sony Support told me to buy an new IDE cable, which proved to be a waste of $25.

    Sony 840A will recognize a pre-recorded disk, but gives message "insert blank disk" when trying to write to it. Have tried several brands and types of disk with same error message.

I have the same problem with my sony so i tried various liton burners and they did they did the same blue screens. I tried Dell for the suggested BIOS up date but their latest was older than the one I had so I didn't install it. I suspect the problem is more with Nero than anything else.

Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...


Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530


Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

Sony dru-840a firmware


Seems i "downgraded" from a Plextor 716A. My Sony DRU-840A refuses to burn in multi session mode. I bought the retail version of Nero 8. Now i am suggested to update the DRU-840 firmware. Either the firmware update doesn't exist, or its hidden really well on the Sony website.... Maybe i should just throw this Sony away and replace with another Plextor... AHA!!! I think I'll do that!!!!
