Having problems with your Sony VIAO P4 PCV-RS712 3.0GHz 512MB 200GB DVD RW DVD BRAND PC Desktop ?

Will not read or burn dvd's

\015 My sony vaio pcv rx404my pc will burn cd's and read cd's but will not burn dvd's or read a dvd that has been burnt on another pc or dvd recorder\015

Answers :

Can it read or playback normal dvd's ie a movie that you have purchased from a shop or rented ?

If not then the dvd laser has gone in your dvd / cd rw drive in which case you need another dvd drive.

If it will play back normal movie dvds then that indicates that your computer can playback dvd's and hence the laser is working but maybe the other dvd drives / recorders are not closing the dvds correctly maybe ?

Not sure - some more info from yourself would help.
Dear friend

this is common probs for notebook dvdrws

they lack quality (all brands)

after sometime drives stops writing dvds, then reading them

after sometime, writing cds and eventually reading cds

in 5-6% cases drives stops to read cds first

sorry friend you have to replace the drive

and if it is in warranty

go for rma

thanks
