Hi,My Sony optical drives shows in my computer and device manager reports it as working properly BUT it would not read any discs. I have tried various CDs and DVDs, reconnected the Ide cable but it just wouldn't read. Any ideas??? Thanks
It's possible either the laser is dirty or has died.
Hi Maj,Yes, I think the laser has died as I have tried to clean any dust off it by blowing air thru' and still not reading. Cheers
Bit of Straw clutching but you could install Imgburn its freeclick here Then open it click on discovery bung a disc in blank or burnt if that does not show anything in the right hand pane Let go the straw
I had the very same problem earlier this year (coincidentally with a Sony). Checking and cleaning made no differnece.The answer was to change it for a new drive. They are cheap these days.
Thanks for all the input
