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,
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.
