Welcome to CDFreaks Forum.

Boot the DRU 800 with a windows cd, instead of the harddisc.

If you can boot into windows install, your drive are fine.

If your can’t boot your drive laser are bad.

damn it doesnt boot from disk should i get ahold of sony and try to get a replacement?

Did you set the computer to boot from CD before HDD in the BIOS?

yes i set it too boo from disk

Yes, then the CD laser part is probably bad.

:frowning: my mom got it for me she had a rebate for it wounder if i can still get a replacement?
