Please go ahead and click on start > in start search type in device manager {(in vista ) in case of xp right click on my computer > properties > hardware > devicemanager}.
In device manager click on the + sign beside the cd- dvd > then right click on the driver and uninstall it .
Then in start search type in regedit {(for vista ) for xp in run type in regedit}
Look for some thing like
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Then SYSTEM
Then CURRENT CONTROL SET
Then CONTROL
Then CLASS
Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
The whole thing looks like this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Then on the right hand side look for something like upper and lower filters and delete the upper and lower filters....
Restart the notebook . It will help

Sorry but a DVD ROM or CD ROM can't burn thus called ROM (Read Only Memory) Must be a DVD/RW or CD/RW (Re Writable)

Optiarc CD-RW CRX880A Reads CD/DVD, FAILS to write intermittently


To my knowledge, that is a firmware issue. Go to http://www.sony-optiarc.us/en/support-service/downloads/fw_cd-writer-dv-series3.htm and click the last link, which is the firmware download.zip for your updated firmware. Install that, and try again. If you have any problems, repost and i can try helping again.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD


CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats

Blank dvd not readable


Do you have software capable of writing to a DVD?
Its no good having a drive that can read a DVD - that is all it can do without software. I suspect that is why it is chucking your disc out!

If you have no software then look on the net for some free stuff - plenty about, or buy Nero

Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device: This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?


Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.
