Optical Drive Replacement Tags: DVD Writers Optical Media Storage Last response: September 29, 2012 7:35 PM in Storage Share kay1eb September 29, 2012 6:52:26 PM Hello, 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!

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? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
