[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DRX-720UL. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi everyone,
I’m coming closer to pulling off my goal from an earlier post but the thing standing in my way is the DVD burner. I got it off ebay with the power supply and cables but it just won’t show up on any of my computers. My PC is XP SP2 and I tried all my USB ports, turning off the computer and restarting but no luck.

Has anyone else had issues that could be resolved.

Oh, they claim plug and play so there are no drivers on Sony’s website.

Thanks,
Jay

Was it used?

If it does not “plug and play” the unit is dead. However the external box still might be good and you could try another known good drive in it.

It was used…when you insert a CD, it sounds like it reads it and is standing by for a prompt. Is it really dead?

Buying used opticals is not a good idea. Since Lite-on came on the scene the whole industry has been dragged down to disposable status.
