Sony DVD-CD writer problems (Sony DRU-840A)

[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DRU-840A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I replaced my HP 753c cd writer with a Sony DRU-840A. I keep getting corrupt files when I copy to a CD. The originals are fine. On trying a second time I get the copies. The total MB is less then the 750 to fill up a CD. What is wrong?

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

First of all, there is no need to type in bold :wink:

Some possible causes are the following:

[li]A damaged RAM memory module (run a memtest to check your RAM)
[/li][li]A faulty IDE driver (rather frequent with some old VIA or nVidia IDE drivers). Installing standard microsoft IDE drivers should completely solve the issue
[/li][li]You are using very low quality discs, so the burned discs have so many errors that all files are corrupted
