DVD read error.
« on: May 16, 2009, 04:48:00 am »
So yes its rare that i ask for help.
i have a sony DRU-830a dvd+/- RW
once windows is loaded it wont read a dam thing but it will still burn discs.
as for testing the reads i used it in another c and it will boot from a disc fine.

Ive done the following before Posting:
googled the issue like a good chap, it turned up one relevant result about services being turned off
i enabled all 238 of them to no avail

I deleted the upper filters, nothing

I deleted the upper and lower filters, still nothing

I tried ccleaner, nothing

i uninstalled the driver then rebooted and let windows download the dirver from sony

I updated the driver firmware

and yes ive tried cd-rs music cds and dvd's

Bluey suggesting setting it to master and i shall try it tommorow.
Any ideas are appreciated

=)

I had a Sony drive, its in the dustbin now, seems it was liking only certain disks and not others, the cheaper drives have exhibited no such problems and I would steer anyone away from Sony products for the simple reason they are heavily into region coding in most of their equipment.

You are now speaking with Tina of Sony Optical Support.

John: Hello
Tina: I would recommend running our diagnostic program called Drive Check, against the drive. If the test fails, you will be prompted to email the results to storage.support@am.sony.com. Here is a link to the test: http://sony.storagesupport.com/DriveCheck If the test passes, please call us at 800-588-3847 for further assistance.
John: wow... thats a shitty response considering it works in unix
Tina: We do not support the drive on a Unix system, only Windows. Running this test will tell us if it is a system issue, media issue or a drive issue.
John: the drive works in other pcs as well.
John: you could have asked what ive done to test the drive
Tina: If the drive works fine in other systems, then it is not a drive issue, it is a system issue.
John: well duh. thats why im here
John: ive tried reinstalling drivers and i deleted the upper and lower filters
John: still nothing
Tina: We can not assit you with system issues.
John: so wt* are you paid to do? tell people to run your program and thats all?
Tina: We are only here to assist with drive issues, not system issues.
John: is there anyone on your support site who can help with system issues?
Tina: No, we are only here to assist with drive issues.
John: well thats ****ing lovely......
John: good day
Yes ive edited it. and the funny thing is this.....
"Tina: We do not support the drive on a Unix system, only Windows. Running this test will tell us if it is a system issue, media issue or a drive issue."
they support windows......
"Tina: We can not assit you with system issues."
but they dont support any operating system...just the drive LOL

OK my suggestions
1. Go sick in device manager remove any drive and controller for them you can IDE ATA/ATAPI     etc.
shutdown.. remove power cord.. press power on button to discharge any remaining power then start back up.
quick and easy :)
more to come..
