Hello,
Okay here is what I would try to get us in the right direction
It seems like your cd drivers are not there, or your cd drive is bad

Does the cd spin when you insert it? :flowers:


{
1)Go into device manager: Start>Control Panel>Device Manager><<EXPAND THE"+" sign on Cd and DVD drives>>
2)Once you do that check out if the drive has a "?" on it... :trumpet:
3)If it does I recommend to right click and "update driver" or go into "properties"
4)If there is no question mark then I would go into>>Control Panel.
5)Check if there is a dvd cd driver and uninstall it.
6)Go to Sony's website and download the driver for your particular model. :inlove:
}

Also its not a bad idea to clean the lens with a ear suab and alcohol. Maybe it needs that. :thumbsup:

Try putting those .dll files into C:Windows\System32 and try again.

Let me know if that worked.

Kind regards.

Bruce.

Download and install Imgburn

Make sure it sees your drive correctly

Under tools there is a filter driver load order, copy to clipboard and paste here

Use Imgburn to remove all of them

We are looking at 2 possible scenarios here, your drive is dying or software conflicts have it so confused it's almost useless.

We can reinstall software, none of yours is worth keeping tho.

We may still have to kill aspi but I have never had to do that for Vista
