DVD drive doesn't read suddenly...?

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?

try uninstalling your burning software and drivers roll back the driver on the drive disable your antivirus and fire wall after disconnecting from the internet an run a fresh install of the drives drivers and software. if asked to keep present driver or replace choose replace present driver. this should fix you up.

Sony DVD RW DW-31A stopped writing and not recognising CD in tray


are u copying the disc on the fly i mean directly from dvd rom to dvd rw it sometimes generate this error when reading drive stops giving data due to some error and suddenly bcoz of that the writing drive leavve the session un closed and give an error the solution is first copy ur disc on the hard drive and then copy it on another disc on the fly copying is not safe otherwise also try this

pls try to clean the lens of the drive as follows

due to dusty environment and excessive use lens gets dusty and then have problems in reading or writing dvd 's and cd's

open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens or cotton bud good quality see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements

u can try that software thing as well but i dont think it will solve ur problem

pls do rate me FIXYA if i fixed what u wanted

I have a proble I sent my laptop to repair because all my hard drive was erase and it was fix the only problem is that now it does not read no disk and i want to download my microsoft office standard 2007...


Well, it is illegal to provide a "download link" for a commercial link such as MS Office, so, I recommend that you purchase it from a legitimate vendor.

Coming to your laptop's problem, can you please be a little elaborate? Has your laptop stopped reading DVD/CDs?

CD Burner stops in middle of burning


Hi KayGo, People hate going over the basics but gotta ask: -Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner? -Do you have any problems reading CDs? -What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi. -Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks? -What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect. -How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long. -Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know if you need any other assistance and don't forget to rate the posting.
