I have some problems with my new Sony AW-G170A (Optiarc AD-7170A). When i insert a DVD-movie and tries to play it in Windows media player it says: “Windows Media Player cannot display subtitles or highlights in DVD menus. Reinstall the DVD decoder or contact the drive manufacturer to obtain an updated decoder”.
When i insert the DVD in my other, older, dvd-drive it works just fine. I have also tried to play the DVD in VLC and wmp classic but it doesn’t work.
Also, when i insert a music cd it cant be played, but the drive recognizes it and shows the files on it. It is no problem to burn data dvds with it, but when i try to burn .img files nero says something about communication error. I haven’t installed any modified firmware because then the warranty will be gone.
