    Cd/dvd rw drives do not require drivers to operate.

    What problems are you having with the drive?

Hello sbrown20,

Do whats suggested at this article;LN];314060

Anyway, as Mark7171 said, there are no drivers for optical drives and Windows has its generic driver for it, which is good enough.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further, if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FixYa! rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

    If that does'nt work then go HERE
    and download CDgone Patch. Save it to your Desktop. Create a new folder
    on your desktop and unzip the downloaded CDgone Patch into the newly
    created folder.

    There will be 3 files in the new folder... a
    Readme file and two registry (.reg) files... green icons. Double click
    on the reg file named EditReg and confirm OK to any message windows. Then right click on the reg file named cdgone and select Merge... again confirm OK to any message windows.

    Restart your computer. Hopefully that should help...If it works, don't forget to give a FixYa! rating ;)

Sony CRX3105 CDRW/DVD not functioning

1st of what OS are you using?
If your using Vista onwards,
Device manager supports updates through net You have to right click on the device and select properties
On the drivers tab, press update. Go through the process, you may select to update them through internet access.
If ever it fails, change the DVD (sata or IDE) slot.
A way to find out that DVD's are working is to put a CD in and if the LED light blinks, it still reads data and the prob is @ your computer (driver).

Hope I helped JeyCi
