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 wiped out the dvd and cd driers on my son pcv-rs310


Uninstall both of the drives from Device Manager located under My Computer and then scan your computer for new changes it should detect the drives and it will install the driver itself hopefully you are using win 7 or vista it will install the driver itself.

I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V517G but the CD/DVD opticle driver does not work Sony sales it for $200. Does some one know where I can get it for cheaper?


A Driver is a small piece of software, that allows the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.

Windows XP is an example of an Operating System. (O/S)
A typical device?
An Optical drive, (CD/DVD), Mouse, Keyboard, and Graphics card, are a few examples.

This is Sony eSupport, and the Drivers download page, for the Sony Vaio VGC-V517G Notebook PC,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGC-V517G&region_id=1

Go down to the third file listing -
CD/DVD Drives - 2file(s)

Left-click on the + sign before,
CD/DVD Drives -2file(s)

If your optical drive is the Sony DW-D56A, download the second file listed,
(Sony DW-D56A DVD -+RW Optical Drive Firmware Update Utility)

I also suggest you download the first file listed also.

Download both files. Open one at a time. Open one file, then install the file. Then open the other file, install it.

Go to the right, and left-click on the icon that looks like a blue World, with a green down arrow under it.

On the next page go to the right, and left-click on that same icon again. (Under the - Download Now - heading)

Should you need additional info, or help with the above, come back, and state so in a comment.

Or ,have I understood your problem wrongly? If so state it in a comment. Allow me the chance to give you the right information, before you rate the solution.

sounds like you have issues with your hard drive.  go to start>run.
type this in without the " "
"cmd", hit ok.  a black screen pops up.  type "cd.." and hit enter.  type in "cd.." and hit enter again.  type "chkdsk c: /f /r".  It will say the drive can not be checked, it is in use.  hit "y" to schedule a check at boot up.  type"exit" and reboot your computer.  let me know if this helps.

DVD-ROM drive not working


Hi there.
It sounds like the lens on F drive has gone as i cannot read disks, there is nothing you can do about this once the lens has give up.
The best thing you can do now is remove it from the desktop and just carry on using the DVD/RW as this is the only optical drive you need because it reads and writes DVD's and CD's.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
