Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My problem is this I have the AD-7201S DVD burner with lightscribe and it will recognize and play burned DVD’s but it will not recognize any store bought DVD’s I have tried all the software NERO 8 PowerDVD7 Deluxe and it will still not recognize the DVD’s as soon as I put the DVD in the light comes on for about three seconds and then the light goes out and the nothing. When I open MY Computer and click on the D: drive nothing happens it wont even recognize a disk in the drive. any help you could give would be appreciated.


Check the region settings of the drive.

And welcome to the forums!


I have tried that everything checks out but nothing is working thanks for the post . As of Today I have sent the Drive back to Sony and they have RMA’d it. So if there is any one out there with this same problem let Sony know and they didn’t hessitate to tell me to send it back no questions asked. they even paid for Shipping so. Thank you for the advice.
