This is my first post here and i hope this is the right place to post this topic. A year back i bought a sony dvd writer. The model i bought was sony DRU-170c. Or so i thought. When I opened device manager, it showed the model as Sony dvd rw aw-g170a. Since it was working fine and being the lazy mule that i am, i didnt bother exchanging it or atleast taking it to the shopkeeper and telling him about it
My problems started recently (might have been there for a while but i didnt know abt it). I'll try to be as clear as possible
1) I am able to write dvds but not read any dvds. Even the ones that were not written by my writer
2) I am able to read cds using the writer but not dvds
3) The dvds that i write can be read using my cd/dvd rom. So i guess nothing is wrong with dvds
So i want to know if it cud be a firmware issue. If yes, then how do i update my firware?
