Where i find Sony C R X 140 E driver for x p ??? In go ogle i didn't find ... only virus ... please help me !!!


Hello friend
You don't need Sony drivers if you are using Windows !!!!!
Go here to Sony for your your cd player. http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/180
Click on the 'Dos Drivers' and read the words from there ....'NOTE: Windows operating systems have built in drivers to support your Sony CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM drive as a CD-ROM reader. No additional drivers are normally required once Windows is installed and running. However, you will need additional software to make use of CD Writing and DVD Video playback if your drive supports these functions.'

I suggest you re-install Windows XP from installation disks. after backing up your personal files which you will lose.

You mentioned 'driver booster' Yes ONLY ONLY ONLY EVER download drivers from , the Manufacturers site . Sony in this case,

There are lots of rubbish sites offering drivers this and drivers that. THEY ARE ALL RUBBISH !!!!!!! DON'T EVER EVER USE THEM
I cannot stress it enough tell your friends, tell everybody.

As I say , connect up your cd player and then re-install windows xp or whatever Windows version you have. Windows will automatically install its OWN drivers for your player.

Better still friend... buy a more up-to -date dvd r/w combi.player They are really cheap these days.

My Sony Combo Model CRX320AE is not playing DVD what should I do now


Try a different CD/DVD
1. First we must determine if the cd/dvd or the cdrom itself has a defect 2. Try at least 10 cds to test on your cd/dvd player
Try Deleting LowerFilters / UpperFilters
To do this follow the steps below:
1. Click Start -> Run (for XP) or Start Search (Vista) or search for programs and files (Windows 7)
2. Type Regedit
3. Click on the plus sign beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\

4. Under Class Click on the Folder {4D36E965-E325- ....} (note that the alpha numeric numbers are quite similar we only need ....65)

5. Look for UpperFilters and Delete it
6. Look for LowerFilters and Delete It
7. Restart the computer


If it did not work try
Replacing the IDE cable
1. Open thechassis of the computer (refer to your computer manual) 2. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the gray cable that looks like a belt at the back of the computer

My LG DVD RW can not play DVD


Are you sure that your ROM can't play the disc or is it that you don't have a program to play the disc? To my knowledge Windows XP didn't come packaged with a DVD Decoder program; except for XP Media Center. There are some FreeWare programs out there that you can download, or you can pay for the program that decodes DVDs so that you can watch them. If your DVD isn't recognizing any type of DVD that you put into the ROM, then try playing a CD\DVD player cleaning disc in it. If that doesn't work, then you will probably have to get another DVD-ROM.
