Cd driver is not working, cannot play cds or burn cds. for sony VGN NR 240E


Answers :

Try different cds. if not try re-install your dvd driver. if didn't work i suspected your dvd rom drive is faulty. if it is under warranty u can check with sony. they should replacee it with no charge at all.
Take a damp q-tip with glass cleaner and gently wipe the laser in the drive. This will ensure there is no dust or dirt particles getting in the way of the laser reading the discs.

If you still can't get your drive to read dvd's, cd's, music discs, etc. Then that means the laser is to weak and the drive is bad. You would have to replace the drive, if the laptop is under warranty then go that route to try and get it replaced if it comes down to that. If its not under warranty then try a quick search on Ebay and see where that gets you.
