Question about Sony CDU5211/5221 Internal 52x CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

SONY CD-ROM MODEL CDU5211

G'day
My young Grandson's just been given a pc which has the above cd installed
Today he was able to play his (horrible! ) music cd's fine but I tried installing a program from cd for him & it wouldn't work
I had just used the cd on my 2 pc's so I know that is ok
His pc has been wiped by the previous owner, Windows XP Pro installed but no drivers for anything were installed - we thought we'd fixed this but now we're wondering if the player would need specific drivers rather than just using the Windows ones
Can anyone help me please?
Hooroo

My driver for sony cd rom cdu5211 is lost and now my CD ROM is not reading any type of CD.


It depends on what Operating System you are using.Windows Xp have all the drivers for Sony and other brands of CD rom drives,same with Vista and win7.Just go to the control panel,click the hardware manager and the drop down menu will show the hardwares of your CPU.Look for the cdrom driver and see if it has the yellow baloon with exclamation-meaning it has an error or the driver is not installed.You can go to sony website and type in your cdrom drive model and it will give you the driver for it,download the software.If the software is detected and ask you to install it,click "yes".After the process is done,test it by putting in a music or picture cd,make sure the drive is clean too cause reasons why cdroms don't read is because of dirty laserheads.Buy yourself a cdrom lens cleaner disk,it helps me many times.

I need a compatable replacement and where to go get it.


This is just a standard IDE 52x CD rom drive. Any computer store should have this for under 20 dollars, some might even give you one of the used ones.

The first thing that we are going to check is to see if windows xp has the device disbled .. is so then reenable it

.1 Click start \ my computer
2.) Right click on local disc c and click properties
3.) slick hardware and see if your burner shows up there..
If it is there means windows recgonise it if not then it doesnt you can try the next step in any case

1.) click start then right click my computer and choose properties

2.) click the hardware tab, then choose device manager

3.) look at the tree view and find DVD\CD-Rom Drives
4.) click the + next to it and verify that your drive is there
If it is not then skip the next few steps
5.) right click on it and see if it says enable or disable,
If it says enable then click enable ,, if it says disable then proceed to net step..

OK SO ALL THE ABOVE FAILED THATS WHY YOU ARE READING THEN
1.) SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND UNPLUG IT

Sony cd driver


Hi, the CD doesn't actually require a "Specific Driver" in fact Windows has a "Built in Driver" that would work O.O.B. (Out Of the Box) If there is a specific driver then of course one would use that. However I think you will find that this is just an ordinary IDE CD. Simply connect it up and if it works it will "Show Up" in "My Computer" and be ready to use. If it doesn't work, then generally it is kaput.. and no amount of software shuffling will make and difference.

Hang up


What is the system configuration? How old is the system? Is it a dual boot? Do you have any programs running when running defrag or scandisk?
