    I'm running a Dell XPS, gen 2, with the Sondy CDRW DVD CRX880A. My wife has told me it has had "difficulty" with music CDs in the past, but has run DVDs and CDROMs just fine. Well, I tried running a program disk, Logitech webcam, and nothing happened save for the drive light flicking and noise being made. I tried using the run command, as well as the icon. I've tried updating the driver (I had the latest), rolling back the driver (nothing to roll back to), and uninstalling the driver (no beans either); after all of that, I at least got the drive to tell me there is no disk inserted, but there certainly is. I've also updated the firmware from Dell, deleted the lower registry in regedit (the upper didn't exist, and neither will show up anymore at all), and physically removed the drive and plugged it back in. I've even cleaned the lense too. I've tried CD, DVD, and CDROM; nothing works. Any ideas? Maybe if I can get the upper and lower registries in regedit to come back, but how? Thanks.

    My cd/dvd will not open and whenI manually open it and put a cd in, it doesn't detect it. Same reen light and noises, but that's all.

    I have the exact same problem. Will not open even if I tell it to eject. Will not detect CD. Tried removing lower and upper filters. Remove and replaced dvd. Also tried updating firmware. Tried flashing bios. No good. Getting Error code 2000-0147 spindle error when running Dell diagnostics.



    Started right after I removed Antivirus 1 virus and performed Vista update.

Sony crx880a cd-r/rw/dvd-rom drive won't do anything. If you put a cd in the drive it may light up and make a noise and quit.It does not read or write Media. troubleshooting gave me an errorcode of...


Please go ahead and click on start > in start search type in device manager {(in vista ) in case of xp right click on my computer > properties > hardware > devicemanager}.
In device manager click on the + sign beside the cd- dvd > then right click on the driver and uninstall it .
Then in start search type in regedit {(for vista ) for xp in run type in regedit}
Look for some thing like
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Then SYSTEM
Then CURRENT CONTROL SET
Then CONTROL
Then CLASS
Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
The whole thing looks like this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Then on the right hand side look for something like upper and lower filters and delete the upper and lower filters....
Restart the notebook . It will help

Optiarc CD-RW CRX880A Reads CD/DVD, FAILS to write intermittently


To my knowledge, that is a firmware issue. Go to http://www.sony-optiarc.us/en/support-service/downloads/fw_cd-writer-dv-series3.htm and click the last link, which is the firmware download.zip for your updated firmware. Install that, and try again. If you have any problems, repost and i can try helping again.
