Answers :

Make sure that you have it set up in the cmos. Thats the first thing you need to do to ensure that it can be read via windows. If its not recognized by the board, windows wont see it either. When the system starts up .. select F2 key to access the cmos. Under system it should provide you with a list of devices installed on your computer. If you do not see your sony drive listed, then you will need to add it. Scroll through the list and determine if it is a master or slave and if it is a primary or secondary device connection. If you have it set up on the same cable as your harddrive, you will need to set the jumper on the CDRW as a slave so that there is no conflict between the two. Did you install all the drivers for the drive into windows as well??? I hope this helps. If you require further assistance, please dont hesitate to ask.
Hey,
\015\012
\015\012Please look into the computer bios / cmos setup and see if the dvd drive is detected there, if its not detected then its not either connected properly or this type of drive will not work with this computer. in that case try the drive on another computer or try another drive on your computer.
\015\012
\015\012to enter bios, please look at the monitor right when you turn the power on, you should have a message to press button to enter system setup or bios or cmos setup. etc.
\015\012
\015\012Possibly F1 or F2, DEL, it depends and the computer will tell you what button is the right one.
\015\012
\015\012Thanks and good luck.
