Re: My sony vaio laptop does not recognize the cd/dvd drive. It did a month ago, but not now. Any help?

So, I am probably going to have to get my laptop serviced since I have tried the above troubleshooting...?

Or I can just get a replacement and replace it myself?

Thanks.

Generally, Sony optical (CD/DVD) drives are self-maintainable. The ones on ebay or other websites are usually used but are in working condition. The hard part is getting a replacement with the same front bezel color, but those usually snap off and can be exchanged as long as they are intended for the same model.

 

If you want a new and original part, it's best to contact Sony Parts:

Otherwise, I usually buy my parts from ebay.com or from other online part vendors.

 

Good luck!

Hi ,

 

I did try your first step of uninstalling and re-installing. After I restarted I could see the CD/DVD turned on in my tray icon but still when I insert a DVD it makes a running sound and stops.

 

My model Number is VPCSE.

You may have a mechanical problem with the drive and require a replacement. Get one online
