Having problems with your Sony VAIO CS Series Notebook PC VGN-CS190JTR ?

There is a problem with my CD/DVD drive on my VGN-CS190 laptop

\015 When I'm using a CD or a DVD on my computer, it stops working because the CD/DVD drive automatically and unexpectedly turns off. Meaning whenever I go to ''My Computer'' the CD/DVD drive doesn't show and I need to power up the CD/DVD drive again. Then about 5 minutes later, the drive turns off again. So I can only watch 5 minutes of each DVD and I can only listen to a CD for 5 minutes until the drive stops working.\015

Answers :

When you boot the computer does the LED on your CD drive Blink ?

If yes.....Did you check the Device Manager ?
Right Click My computer > Properties > hardware > Device Manager
Under DVD/CD properties does it show any conflicts ?
