Older laptop..usual problem finding drivers. I particularly need a driver for the CD/DVD in the laptop. I have Windows 7 installed. Sony site no help...no longer provide any drivers for this model, etc. The usual search engine gives the boatload of driver search software they want to load on the computer. I have the video set, sound ok, USB port working..cannot get the CD to be recognized. It is not visible in the Device Manager? Any direction..?

CD/DVD drives usually just use the default Windows drivers.

 

If you have checked in Device manager under 'View - Hidden devices' it is possible that the drive has just died, they do from time to time. The consolation is that replacements are not terribly expensive and are normally easy to fit. They are almost always held in place by one screw. Undo and remove the screw and the drive will slide out. It may need a little gentle persuasion with a narrow screwdriver through the screw hole to get it far enough out to grip it with your fingers to pull it out. A replacement will just slide back in.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
