DVD Burner Writes CDs not DVDs

My Uncle Has a sony laptop that worked fine for a year or so, Now it burns cds and will read dvds and cds but won’t burn dvds. I reformated the hard drive. Does anyone know what the problem could be? I wonder if it could be an optical drive problem if it works with cds.

The dvd part could be dead.

Try to boot from a bootable dvd.

Doesn’t sound very good, maybe it’s time for a new laptop and no a sony this time.

Yes it’s a Sony and there is alwasy problems with a Sony! :slight_smile:
