Unable to read CDs with SOSW-852S

Hello

I’ve got a problem with my ACER’s Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S drive : I can’t read some CD, such as data CD (it includes misc. data files CD, one .avi file CD and Linux bootable installation CD) and some music CD (it generally works with both burnt and original music CD, but sometimes one can’t be read).

So that it can only read some music CD and also DVD (I’ve only got 2 DVD but it works with them 2).

This problem happened just after a weird burning operation with Nero : the burn was successful (at least no error was to be reported) but during the burning, the Windows’ Task Manager said there was no response from Nero : I had to lower the Nero’s priority in order to end the burning.
After that, I tryed to read the CD but the drive only gave some bips and the CD couldn’t be launched.

Then I tryed with many disks and the same thing happened with every data disks.

I also tryed to change the Firmware (default is PRS9 and I tryed PSX3) thanks to LtnFW but it made no difference.

Any idea on how to fix that would be welcome.

hey,

even i had the same problem like u can any one help me out with this

cheers

Welcome guys :slight_smile:

Unfortunately it’s usually a hardware problem with the drive. To prove it, try booting to a bootable CD (like the Windows XP disc). If it won’t boot to the disc then the drive is faulty. Sorry it couldn’t be better news…

hai,

this was the error message i got , the log file after that it stopped working

sandeep

Try the boot to CD test I suggested. Again if it won’t boot to the CD then the drive is faulty, as this eliminates anything strange in Windows. :wink:

it trys to read but doesnt come , the disk spins for a while and stops

hai ,

this was the error message when i tried to write a cd from nero… after this it stopped working completely, it detects in the hardware, the disk spins for sometime and when we click on the dvd rom drive it opens as empty and even if try to write something on to cd it shows as not disk available

Sorry but if it won’t boot to a CD then it must be the drive that is faulty, as the only software that is running is the BIOS. :frowning:

hey

can u let me know if this can be fixed anywhere in new zealand or else if i need to buy a new one how much will it be , my laptop is acer travelmate 4000

cheers

I tried what you told to do with a Windows bootable CD (i had yet tried with a linux one) and it (they) couldn’t be launched.

I understand that if the drive doesn’t work before Windows is launched, it is probably a hardware problem, but I still can’t understand how it comes that he is able to manage both audio CD and DVD discs. How can some discs be read and other cannot if it is a mere hardware problem ???

Damn. it seems like a lot of people are having this problem.

I have the same exact problem as you guys.

Hey, I also have this problem. DVDRW SOSW-852S is an ACER Aspire 1680.
Looking on this and other forums it would appear that many people are suffering with this drive in ACER machines. As far as I am concerned, it is a clear case of faulty goods. I’ll take it back to my supplier and demand a new one, as I have only had the damn thing 7 months.

Ciao, I’ve a similar problem with a LiteOn SOSW 852S firm. 6SU1 on a Gericom laptop…
Suddenly, it don’t recognized DVD +R 4,7G (Verbatim and Emtec…)…but last month I’ve burned some DVD like these… :frowning:
Why?
Help…

it happens only with blank DVD…

[FONT=Arial Black]I have almost the same problem.
I have a ACER travelmate 2300 with sosw-852s
I can’t read cd (but with pressed I have no problem).
I can write cd.
I can write and read dvd.
If I put cd inside my sosw-852s, it has a problem, I think, with finding 0-path.
Even if I write my own cd it can’t read itself.
But if I write dvd there is no problem at all.
Please help me.
Best Regards

I’m having a similar problem w/ my slimtype sosw-852s in my averatec 6240 laptop. It plays DVD’s but not CD’s. :confused: After the problem started after trying to rip a CD, I’ve only been able to play 2 CDs after trying to upgrade the drivers on averatec’s website. The problem is till going on :frowning:
Can anyone help?

Below is a text attachment w/ Nero InfoTool 's:

If it doesn’t work, i’ll be visiting CC where I got mylaptop :frowning:

Does booting from cd still work ? You might have to enable it in the bios settings, first.

how do you do that? not sure, sorry I’m such a newbie :slight_smile:

I managed to revived my SOSW-852S by CROSSPATCH Sony DVD RW DW-D56A - PFS3.
Before this, about 2-3 weeks ago, without any known reason, my slimtype burner (oem acer aspire 1682 wlmi) refuse to read cd and problem with dvd. I’ve tried other slimtype flasher, but only pfs3 works. But try at your own risk.
