Hi

I recently lost the ability to use my D Drive - it doesn't recognise CD's or
DVD's. I have followed the trouble shooting guide to no avail. The Dvice
Manager says there are no problems. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled
the drive. When I do this the drive reads CD's but as soon as I try to burn
it becomes unable to read DVD's or CD's in the drive until I reinstall it
again.

Any suggestions?

Hey Guy,

Have you tried updating the firmware of your drive? Go to the manufacturers
website and check there.

Thanks, looked at it again and noticed that DVD's do work. Just no CD-R's.
The Sony site did not have any firmware updates for my drive.

Check the Sony site to make sure that the brand you are using is supported.
Some brands don't work in certain drives.
