I am having problems with this rewriter and from all the forums I have read so are a lot of people.What I would like to know has anyone got an answer to it or is it best thrown in the bin.
It will not reccognise the discs it supposed to and is just about driving me mad.
My system is P4 3.4g 10024mg ram with Nero6 reloaded running XP home with SP2.

Not sure if it is the same dvd rewriter, but on my laptop I had to update my dvd rewriter before installing xp2

DW-D22A is OEM driver and SONY does not support any OEM driver, the support responsiblity if with PC builder which use the driver in the PC

no firmware update canbe found for this driver even hacked ones

spend another £40 get a Liteon or LG one which enjoy much better manufacturer support (i.e. regular firmware upgrade for new media compitability)
