Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

My sony cs11s wont let me make recovery discs lets me get to 12% and then ejects disc


Answers :

Make sure you have the notebook plugged in (some recovery disk software will not run until this is done).

Stop any running processes (such as antivirus scanners and screensavers.
Sometimes changing the brand of disk makes a difference, too. Some drives are picky about what they burn to. The more opaque the disk, the greater the success in burning.
Do a test burn and make sure the drive is working properly--make a music cd or copy an unprotected cd and see if this process fails.
Finally, check to see if your burning software has the latest updates. The burning engine in the recovery disk software may be outdated.
Good luck and keep us posted.
