Sony dvd dru-190a not able to read dvd's but reading cd's. Please help.


It sounds like the laser on your drive is gone. But there are a couple of things you can try first before buying a new one.

Uninstall the driver for it in Device Manager and let windows reinstall it automatically on reboot.
or use DriverEasy to install it > download here .
Uninstall and reinstall whatever burning software you use.

Take a look at this thread. Some of the tips there might apply to you.

The drive I had trouble with back when I posted in July finally died a couple of weeks ago. CD's worked fine, just like you. All my good settings with Auto Run, etc, were still there. So I bought a new drive and I'm back in business.

Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

Dru-190a sony it takes 50-60 min to write


Just right click on my computer, go to properties> hardware> device manager> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers. there u will find several primary and secondary IDE Channels. Right click on first IDE channel and goto properties> Advanced settings, change transfer mode to "DMA if Available". Repeat it with all the channels. If problem still persists then uninstall the channel containing ur DVD Writer and restart your computer. It will detect new hardware as DVD Writer. Now if it is showing the transfer mode "DMA if Available" by default then your problem is solved.

Sony DRU-500A Won't read DVDs... at all.


INSTALL VISTA ANY WAY the problem is that windows can use the drive..
BOOT OF THE VISTA DISC

enter setup when the system boots up
go to booting options
and select the dvd rom as the first boot device
ensure the vista disc is in the drive
and save and exir setup
it will tell you to pree any key to boot from cd/dvd
and it will install vista without any hassle
