I am running a Novatech PC / Notebook with an AMDAthlon 64 Processor 3400+ 288mhz 512MB Ram with an integrated Sony DVD RW DW-U54A and am having problems with the drive recognising various CD / DVD disks.

I have searched Sony's pages and indeed Novatechs for updated drivers to try and resolve the problem to no avail and have all the latest updates for WIN XP installed including Service Pack 2.

Can anyone help as this is driving me nuts when trying to write CD / DVD's

Windows has its own cd drivers, uninstall the drive from within device manager and restart the computer, windows will reload the drivers.

Failing that, the drive could have developed a fault.
