Sony DRX-820UL-T; DVD-RW USB2.0 (by Vaio)

Looking for driver(s) for this old DVD-RW drive I've hardly used. Sony says it was made by Vaio/they've ceased support/Vaio's website doesn't even address it. Am I 'beating a dead horse'?

It is possible that the Sony DRX-820UL-T DVD-RW drive is no longer supported by the manufacturer and that the necessary drivers are no longer available. This is often the case for older devices that have not been manufactured or supported for a long time.
If you are unable to find the drivers on the Sony or Vaio websites, you can try the following options:

  1. Check online forums or communities: There may be online forums or communities where users have shared their own drivers or solutions for this particular DVD-RW drive.
  2. Check third-party driver websites: There are several websites that offer drivers for a wide range of devices, including older ones. You can try searching for the drivers on these websites to see if they are available.
  3. Check with a technical support team: You may be able to get help from a technical support team or a professional repair service that specializes in older or discontinued devices. They may be able to provide you with the necessary drivers or help you find a solution to the problem.
It is worth noting that using third-party drivers or unsupported software can be risky and may cause issues with your device or system. It is recommended to exercise caution and consider the potential risks before proceeding.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I recycled the drive; Sony said it's not supported under Win 10. New drive is possible for <$50.00."
