Optical Drive Replacement


I have two sony vaio computers, 1. vgn-fw590 with a bd-rw 2. sve-1511 with a dvd-rw.

I wanted to switch optical drives and was successful with the hardware as the connectors were the same. My sve-1511 is now fitted with the blu-ray burner drive.

However I am unable to use it. It is recognized by my computer as a device with removable storage but I cannot use it. I have searched for a driver but to no avail.

Any suggestions?! Thanks!

  1. What do you mean by "cannot use it"? It doesn't read or doesn't write? In general you don't need a driver, but a burn software that is compatible with the drive. But that came with the laptops it think?
