First, make sure the CD/DVD drive is being recognized in your CMOS setup. You will have to press the key that it tells you to press when you first boot (DELETE, F2, etc.) and enter setup. For most different types of BIOS, the first screen that appears will detect and display disk drives, CD drives, and floppy drives, as well as date and time. If the computer BIOS recognizes the CD/DVD drive, then it means that the interface is OK, but it doesn't tell you if other parts of the drive are working. The door mechanism may have failed, for instance.

If the BIOS does not list the CD/DVD drive, it has either become disconnected or has failed. You will probably have to open up the computer and check the connections.

If they are OK, then the drive will have to be replaced. They are not too expensive, so you should be able to pick one up at a local computer store, or over the internet.

Good luck!

Disassemble the casing, and disconnect the USB-to-disk-drive adapter from the disk-drive.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some computer. If you are "lucky", the computer will detect the drive. If you are "unlucky", search online for "Data Recovery Service" -- these are high-cost services that can disasemble your disk-drive, repair it just long enough to copy your files onto another disk-drive (or DVD-writable media).

Sony DVD+/-RW |DW-Q30A will not record cd or dvd & only play dvds


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD , or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.

Not reading dvd r or rw as writable disk


It sounds like you are having issues with all DVD writable disks. From the specs I was able to find online about your DVD writer, DVD+RW discs may not be compatible with the the drive. Make sure you are using DVD-RW (note the minus instead of +). I think you might need to reinstall your DVD drivers. This should solve the issue.
