I have a hp media center pc Model a1210n which recently has had a clean install to factory condition done by by son-in- law. Now the DVD does not read disc


DVD codecs are missing. You can download a codec pack for free and install. This should solve your prob. Older DVD rom drives did not come with onboard codecs. When you format and reinstall the registered codec can get cleaned away. Like baby out with the bathwater...............

My Vaio DVD/CD drive Sony DVD RW DW-U14A hasn't read a disk in more than a year. XP knows its there but doesn't read disks. (Both blank CDs and commercial CD-ROMs like Microsoft Works show in...


Hi. Check the transport mechanism of the laser head. The transport can get stuck with dust, hair or vibration. If the transport is stuck, the drive still appear but can't read the CD because the lens is not moving properly.

Clean the area around the lens with cotton buds (be careful not to scratch the lens). Move the lens mechanism away from the center (use a plastic paper clip, slide gently). Place a DVD/CD disc and reboot your laptop. The DVD will auto align the drive during boot-up.

Good luck.

I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V517G but the CD/DVD opticle driver does not work Sony sales it for $200. Does some one know where I can get it for cheaper?


A Driver is a small piece of software, that allows the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.

Windows XP is an example of an Operating System. (O/S)
A typical device?
An Optical drive, (CD/DVD), Mouse, Keyboard, and Graphics card, are a few examples.

This is Sony eSupport, and the Drivers download page, for the Sony Vaio VGC-V517G Notebook PC,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGC-V517G&region_id=1

Go down to the third file listing -
CD/DVD Drives - 2file(s)

Left-click on the + sign before,
CD/DVD Drives -2file(s)

If your optical drive is the Sony DW-D56A, download the second file listed,
(Sony DW-D56A DVD -+RW Optical Drive Firmware Update Utility)

I also suggest you download the first file listed also.

Download both files. Open one at a time. Open one file, then install the file. Then open the other file, install it.

Go to the right, and left-click on the icon that looks like a blue World, with a green down arrow under it.

On the next page go to the right, and left-click on that same icon again. (Under the - Download Now - heading)

Should you need additional info, or help with the above, come back, and state so in a comment.

Or ,have I understood your problem wrongly? If so state it in a comment. Allow me the chance to give you the right information, before you rate the solution.

Power Calibration error


powe calibration error reffers to lens laser power
in other words the laser doesn't have enough power to write CD/DVD at specified speed

try to clean the lens (there are special CD-s for that)
and try to burn the cd or DVD at slower speed

but slowly your cd writer is dying
