I purchased a Sony AW-G170 drive a while ago as part of a new computer system. I have set the whole computer up (I’m using Windows XP as an OS) and everything is running well with one exception. The sony dvd drive I have will record a dvd or cd and can read from them in windows explorer but when I try and have the drive play a dvd movie it crashes and the disc won’t play.
I don’t know a huge amount about dvd drives and just went with the basic plug and play driver built into windows xp. However I’m wondering if there is a driver from Sony I would be better off with (I checked the website and couldn’t find anything for this model though) which might fix the problem. If anyone has come across this problem or knows how to solve it I would be grateful for help,
