DVD burnt in my drive. It reads all the CD's without any problem. Please give me a solution.

Let's say ******** to Sony and let them know that we need the firmware update for this drive.otherwise throw em away. I'm running the net long time to find the firmware update but the truth is that this piece of software doe's not exist yet
I invite everybody to sony forum to **** them in they're own territory

if you go to the manufacturers website.
You,ll probably find that your drive, may only support DVD+ Or DVD- Format.
Being the case, you,d only use that type of Blank-Media ( disks )

Hi i have Sony AW-G170A on 2 pc's and almoust at same period both pc's started not to read DVD cds, cds that were writen by the same drive so ive check the net and end up updating the Firmwares 1.71 to 1.75 so check this link. And get AW-G170A Firmware 1.75 then u gonna need Binflash to update the Firmware get Win32 GUI version if u use Win Xp. Open the program press Flash find the location of the 1.75 Firmware and update it restart pc and it should work it worked for me.
