Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read

I installed a cRX300E cD-RW/DVD-ROM combo in my computer. The CD can be read, but when I tried to read DVDs the computer sends an error: "The device is nor ready".

I tried installing the CRX300E Firmware KYS2 but it didn't work.

I will appreciate your assitance,

Thanks,

Hi,
do you have software/program that supports DVD.
Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

I have dvd combo SONY CD-RW CRX300E but my problem is my drive can read cd but cannot read dvd please me to resolve this problem


Try the DVD-disk in some other computer, to see if the disk is the problem in _more_ than one computer.

Try some other DVD-disk in your computer, to see if your Sony drive can read _any_ DVD disks, i.e., if _NO_ disks can be read, then it's time to replace the drive.

make sure that the cdrw dvd rom is getting enough consistent power test all leads that are attached to the cd rom including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or

I have a 3 dongle hardware is zte i have windows vista and everytime i put the mobile dongle in it says e:\ win32 not a valid application help!!!! please


Hi leigh_Hall86,

It seems that you're running a 32 bit version of the software on a 64 bit operating system. Or the driver is not longer supported by modern Operating systems. To fix this issue try finding and installing the right driver.

Hope this helped

I have cobo drive, drive can read and write DVD's but not CD's


Hi there. You may need to re-install your drives.

Open Device Manager, click the + sign next to DVD/CD-ROM drives. Right-click on the drive and choose Uninstall Driver. Shut down your system, and restart. When Windows starts it will detect the new hardware and install the software for it.

Also, try uninstalling your burning software, restart, and re-install. It may be that the software has got corrupt.

Hope they work, and let me know if they do or don't.

Thank you

Tim

Won't recognize dvds


I think your DVD burner is faulty and requires replacing, as they are very innexpensive to replace as you wili probably know,so don't waste too much time trying to solve it. It isnt the decoder as thats a peice software that comes in certain burning programmes, the laser is able to read cds as the tracks are wider apart than dvd's and are easier to read. The drives dont last as long as they used to because, keeping the price of burners down, like anything else means cutting corners and costs and in burners cases as was the case with PS2's the lasers are cheap and soon fail.
