Dear sirs my cd /dvd driver cant open , read and write cd but it can open , read and write dvd. what is its problem? what is your solution recommendations. is it a hardware or software problem? thanx...


Interestingly, when the drive is getting old, it can read/read CDs but not DVDs. Your case is exceptional. It more looks like a software problem as well as the type of CDs you are using. Most drives prefer using CDs with a label "CD-R" but not "CD+R". Try checking on the type you are using.

Try Resetting the autorun software for the CDs as well by:
1) Right click on CD drive in my computer
2) Click on properties
3) Choose the Autorun tab
4) Choose the "prompt me each time to choose an action" option.

Inform me if it works

My dvd drive is not working


Make sure your BIOS is current.  Try different DVDs to isolate if it is a defective DVD.  Get you a optical disc cleaner kit and run it through the machine to clean the optical pickup reader inside.  If your DVD drive is not even spinning, then your DVD drive is fu.k.d up, in which you will need IT to install a new one.

My sony vaio vgn-n110g w/ pioneer dvr stopped burnning


Sounds like you may need a new drive. If I remember correctly those run about $100 and if you feel confident and read the directions (and research it correctly on the internet) you should be able to install it yourself.

Help with my cd player/burner


There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.

I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P.
The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.

I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at http://www.imgburn.com/.

I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.
