I have the same problem!

 

I uninstalled both the DVD and CD drivers, turned off and then turned back off. Without prompting a box came up saying that both drivers were being installed - and then a message said that both operations had failed and that I should contact Sony - so, what do I do now, please?

My Sony Vaio is no longer reading CD/DVDs. I can see the drive in my computer but it does not read the CDs. I tried cleaning the DVD tray but it didnt work. I also tried uninstalling the drive and restarting my computer but eventually it also did not read any CD. I had doen before the upper/lower filter fix but still it hasnt worked. My laptop model is S Series VPCSB36FA with windows 7.

 

Please help. Thank you.

At this point you probably need a dvd/cd drive replacement.

 

Get them online:

Or from Sony Parts:

UpperFilters/LowerFilters

Spoiler
 

 

HELP!

So the DVD started working for a minute but then stopped again. The only step that didn't make sense for me was where you press the Windows key +R and typing regedit. This part HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM showed up but in the right hand pane i did not have the option for  UpperFilters/LowerFilters; it only had the option of Default but the system won't let me delet it! What do i do???
