The dma has to be turned on on that drive and you have to have dvd software and check to see if the drive is listed right under systems

DRIVERS

Go to the website for the DVD Maker and download the latest drivers.
No reason this won't correct the problem.
Don't go to Sony unless they made the DVD burner.

Sony Vaio Notebook's blu-Ray optical drive stops during DVD play


The laser is definitely weak on that drive, it takes alot of power to play blu-ray discs and if the laser may have been slightly defective to begin with then that can cause the drive to act funky the way it has been.

Whatever blu-ray drive you get doesn't matter as long as the shape of it is the same as the one you have now cause all you would have to do is change out the front door and the screw holder on the back of the drive, then because the shape of the drive is the same, you can move it back into its slot.

Your notebook is new enough to where any drive will work in it.

No read blu ray disk


Look to see if your system came with a blu-ray dvd player. Cause according to the specs to your sysem it comes with a dvd+-rw drive which means it can play original dvds as well as movies on a dvd+r and dvd-r. Look for the blu-ray logo on the front of your drive. It should look like this:
http://www.pacificdisc.com/images/bd44.png

If it doesn't have that logo then that means your drive can't play blu-ray. If it does have the blu-ray logo and its not playing those discs then you need either a software program that will play blu-ray or your blu-ray dvd player has a weak laser and the drive would nee to be replaced.

CDRW/DVD ROM Drive


I would suggest trying WinDVD and see if that works. If so, then yes, it would be a decoder issue.

Toshiba dvd rom sd r6012 isn't reading the DVDs


Try some factory CD and DVDs and just try to get them to open in Windows (not play in a media player program). If you get errors on every disc you try, it may be your CD/DVD hardware packing in.

If it reads some CDs or DVDs and not others, particularly media discs, you may be having software driver problems, otherwise, it is likely hardware.

Try inserting the disc and spinning it up while resting the laptop on its side, or even upside down. If it reads sideways or upside down, the CD/DVD reader hardware has gone and cannot probably be prepared (this is a symptom of physical controller failure and is ot fixable by normal means).

Good luck...
