Problem with sony crx880a cd/dvd drive

\015 I am having a problem with my cd/dvd drive on my computer. It is a sony crx880A drive. It will play dvd's but not cd's. I tried downloading a firmware update, reinstalling my OS system, and going a deleting the upper and lower filters for the drive. I was able to delete the upper filters but did not have the lower filters to delete and so I got the blue screen and had to restore my computer. Any other solutions. Thank You.\015
