Question about Computers & Internet
Sony has a very long, elaborate process just to ask them for some help, so I was hoping you guys would be up to the task. Haha...
Well, I have the Sony DRU-830A(internal DVD/CD burner) and it's never had problems. Then suddenly, one day...it wouldn't read a burned DVD I put in. Now, I "tested" the drive by putting in other types of media, and I found that it will read/play/run everything except for DVDs and CDs that were burned(either by itself or another computer). But it still burns things perfectly. Also, when I insert one of these burned DVDs, it will call it a "Blank CD" when windows pops up asking what action you'd like to take with the media you inserted.
On sony's support site they give a diagnostic tool...I ran it and it concluded that burning passed and reading failed. Well...I already knew that. Then it talks about ASPI stuff and I tried out some of that and nothing changed. I made sure the driver was updated, no change.
Any idea what's wrong?
IF YOU MADE ANY MOVEMENT OF YOUR COMPUTER YOU MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE READ LED ON YOUR DVD, IF THIS IS THE ONLY DRIVE ON YOUR COMPUTER COSIDER AN ADDITIONAL DRIVE
