Sony DVD Writer is not Read/Write DVD.

By narenb4c ·
I have purchased a Sony DVD writer 2 months before. I'm using Windows XP Sp2. From the beginning the drive functions well.. but now it cant read/write the DVDs.. But it can write/read the Cds. I'm afraid that the problem is with Winxp. Pls anyone help me to resolve this problem.

The model of the Sony would help

But I've been using them for years without a single problem on Desktops and I've only had one bad one in the Slim Line Series for NB's but that one was bad from the word go.

If you really want to test the Drive load a Live Linux and see if you can record or read a DVD with the drive. If you don't have any Live Linux's you can download one from here

If you want a quick download Puppy Linux will do nicely but if you want a testing tool Knoppix STD would be a better choice.

The laser for reading DVD is gone, while the one for CD is functional.
