DVD/CD drives dont have drivers so to speak, it is 3rd party software that controls its capabilities, media player for watching films and hearing music. Nero for burning cd/dvd's.

Its likely that the drive is just faulty. Replacing it with a new one will be your best solution.

Try connecting the Drive to the motherboard with a different cable.

Contact the person u bought it from for info on drivers.

If the above doesn't work the only option is to relace the drive

I want to download drivers for Sony CRX2100u


Hello there;
The best way to download drivers for your sony cd-rw burner should be going there official website however that driver comes already with your operating system, that means its plug and play. But if your looking for software to have something to use for burning or writing CD then you might have to have a burning software like NERO.
Have a nice day...

Sony CD-RW CRX320EE driver update


CD-Rom and DVD drives in itself do not need drivers in Windows, but the IDE/SATA controllers they are connected to do, so maybe that is what you are looking for?
You can use a driver update program or check the website of your motherboard manufacturer.

I need drivers!


This comes right off the Sony website....

Operating System: Windows Date: 04/18/2008 Do you need a Driver? (External models)

All Sony Optical external units are plug & play with Windows, no drivers are required for detection.

If you are having issues getting your external drive detected in Windows, please try the following:
The drive needs to be connected directly to USB 2.0 or I-link port (depending on model type) on your computer. Please note that the drive is not supported if connected to a dock or a hub.
Also please check the following if you are have trouble detecting:
  • The drive needs to be the only external device connected to the system. Please ensure there are no other USB devices connected.
  • Try a different USB port on your computer.
  • Try a different USB cable
  • Try the drive on a second computer system if possible.
  • Ensure you have the latest BIOS and Motherboard updates from your PC manufacturer.
  • Ensure you have the latest Windows updates from Microsoft.

Hey guys im having problems with my sony dvd drive. I recently installed windows 7 due to my vista completely turning to ****. I understand that the OS is still new and there is a lot that needs to be...


You may try with these troubleshooting steps.

These steps are applicable for either Windows XP or Vista OS. But you can perform the same in the Windows 7 OS.

Option 1: Try installing Sony Registry Update for CD/DVD Drives:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNNR180E&upd_id=2031&os_id=28

Option 2: Try deleting UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values as mentioned:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C299114


http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C501168


The exact solution is delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values and then restart the Computer.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't install Sony DDX-A-1010 USB device using Vista.


I had this same problem and found a fix. I do not know if how my system was broken fits your case but it could be worth a try. Looking at the user manual to the camcorder, it said to look in the Device Manager to make sure the driver was installed. It is supposed to appear in the DVD/CD-ROM drives. It did appear there, but with a yellow flag next to it. I have also been having a problem with my DVD/CD drive. Its driver has had a yellow flag next to it for quite some time. Then I realized I was getting the same error message on my camcorder as I had gotten with my DVD/CD driver "Hardware not found (Error 41)." (Please excuse if I am misquoting these error messages, now that the problem is fixed, I do not know exactly what they said. So, I am doing this from memory.) So, I did a google search on "dvd/cd code 41." It took me to a Microsoft website http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060. Apparently, if you install iTunes, Nero, Roxio Creator, or Zune, it can mess up your registry. This Microsoft website has a "Microsoft Fix it" icon you can click on, and it straightens everything out (it might mess up your installation of iTunes, Nero, Roxio or Zune though). Now, not only does my camcorder work, but my DVD/CD drive is fixed too.
