Sony CRX-850E in my dell m1210 laptop

I can not read DVD in my sony CRX-850E drive (CDRW-DVD combo)

Has anybody else had this problem, it is installed in a dell m1210

If you have a bootable DVD try to boot to the DVD after a power on. If it will not boot then it is most likely a hardware fault in the drive.

If it does boot then you have a problem with windows. Uninstall all DVD software and as a last resort try a Windows repair using the Windows boot disc.

Moved to the LiteOn/Sony forum. :wink:
