The CD/DVD drive is suddenly not recognizing any cd or dvd that I put in it - it will make a small whirring noise, and then nothing happens. I've tried turning computer off & back on again. I also tried going into Control Panel and clicking thru to the "update driver" for the CD drive, but it says that the driver is the most current one. It also says that the drive is working properly. Hah!
Well, you could have Sony repair or replace it, but that might cost more than just getting a $25 USB external DVD drive and plugging it in. Many places sell USB DVD drives. I think even Walmart has them on their shelves.
